    The Athlete’s Hip: Treatment of Hip Pathology
    presented by John Snyder

    The treatment of hip injuries in the athlete is a complicated and often misunderstood area of sports medicine. This course will take you through the evidence-based treatment of athletes presenting with intra-articular and extra-articular hip pathology. We will discuss characteristics specific to tendinopathy, training with femoroacetabular impingement syndrome, exercise prescription, manual therapy, and the effectiveness of these interventions. By understanding the current literature and available treatment options, you will be better able to simplify your treatment plan and clinical reasoning when an athlete presents with hip pain.

    The recommended order to take the courses in The Athlete’s Hip series is as follows:

    The evaluation and rehabilitation of hip injuries in the athlete is a complicated and often misunderstood area of sports medicine. This course will take you through an evidence-based evaluation of groin injuries in this patient population with an emphasis on femoroacetabular impingement syndrome, athletic pubalgia, and less common pathologies (ligamentum teres, extra-articular impingement, etc.). By understanding the current literature and available evaluation techniques, you will be better able to simplify your evaluation and clinical reasoning when an athlete presents with groin pain.

    The recommended order to take the courses in The Athlete’s Hip series is as follows:

  • The Athlete’s Hip: Screening & Evaluation of Posterolateral Hip Pain

    The Athlete’s Hip: Return to Sport
    presented by John Snyder

    Return to sport is a very complicated decision, and for pathologies of the hip, this becomes even more convoluted due to the paucity of research in this region. Multiple factors can influence readiness for return to sport, from fear of reinjury to performance during functional testing. These factors will be discussed in an easy-to-implement framework to aid the clinician’s confidence in returning their athlete with hip pain to sport.

    The recommended order to take the courses in The Athlete’s Hip series is as follows:

  • The Athlete’s Hip: Screening & Evaluation of Posterolateral Hip Pain
  • The Athlete’s Hip: Evaluation of Groin Pain
  • The Athlete’s Hip: Treatment of Hip Pathology
  • The Athlete’s Hip: Return to Sport
