Hip pathology is an often under-appreciated and misunderstood problem for clinicians and athletes alike. As intra-articular and extra-articular hip pain has become more prominent, surgical procedures have increased exponentially, but examination and conservative management have unfortunately lagged behind.
This two-day course will delve into evidence-based evaluation, conservative management, and return to sport of athletes presenting with hip pain. Through lecture and lab sessions, you will learn how to evaluate and treat athletes presenting with intra-articular and extra-articular pathology. This includes learning how to appropriately modify exercise prescription, determine load dosage, and manage the return to sport decision making process.
By simplifying the evaluation and management of these conditions, at the conclusion of this course, clinicians will be more confident in determining underlying pathology, appropriate management, need for surgical consult, and safe return to sport.

- Understand the complexity of pain and its impact on hip pathology
- Understand the impact of femoroacetabular biomechanics on hip and concomitant LE pathology and injury risk
- Be able to accurately assess for red flags (avascular necrosis, femoral stress fracture, and inguinal hernia) and referral from proximal regions
- Be able to accurately and efficiently evaluate extra-articular and intra-articular hip pathology
- Be able to screen for and determine the need for surgical intervention
- Understand pathology dependent and region dependent manual therapy and exercise progression for hip pathology
- Progression of LE exercise and end-stage rehabilitation principles
- Be able to determine psychosocial, functional testing, and pathology specific factors to determine safe and efficient return to sport
