In the course, learners will experience the recommended evidence-based interventions for the hip. Users will recognize the more prevalent hip pathologies seen in musculoskeletal practice and understand the proposed benefit to classifying hip conditions through use of the Pain and Disability Drivers Management model. Techniques used to target the primary impairment are explained, as well as the adjunctive techniques used to target the primary impairment and secondary contributors, and the techniques used to target global conditional issues. Learners will analyze the effectiveness of each technique for treatment within the classifications. Throughout the course, current research is presented to provide learners with the proper tools for evidence-based management of these patients. This course is part of a comprehensive clinical series covering examination and intervention for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, as well as the upper (shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand) and lower (hip, pelvis, knee, foot, and ankle) quarters.

1. Common Pathologies of the Hip

In this chapter, learners will recognize the more prevalent hip pathologies seen in musculoskeletal practice. One of the key goals is geared toward understanding the etiology behind each of the pathologies and the prognosis of each.

2. Pain and Disability Drivers of the Hip

The primary pain and disability drivers for the hip include: 1) nociceptive pain elements, 2) neuropathic pain elements, 3) comorbidity pain and disability elements, 4) mood and cognitive pain and disability elements, and 5) social and environment factors that influence disability. Each of the domains that is specific to the hip is discussed.

3. Interventions Directed at Impairments Specific to the Involved Joint

This chapter reviews the techniques used to target pain relief or strength, specifically toward the targeted region that is impaired within the hip. The chapter will analyze the effectiveness of each technique for treatment within the local impairment classification.

4. Regional Interventions Directed at Structures That Mediate the Impaired Level

In this chapter, learners will review the adjunctive techniques used to target the primary impairment and secondary contributors. Learners will analyze the effectiveness of each technique for treatment within the regional designation.

5. Global-Body or Whole-Person-Directed Interventions

Within this chapter, the focus is less upon the impairment and more on motor control, proprioception, cognitions, behaviors, and whole-body conditioning. Learners will review techniques associated with lifestyle medicine, global management, and cognitive-behavioral approaches.
