Accreditation Check:
There has been a 25-fold increase in the number of hip arthroscopies performed between 2006 and 2013 primarily in response to improved diagnosis and treatment of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) syndrome. This course highlights some of the more recent evidence regarding the diagnosis, epidemiology, and structural adaptations with regards to FAI syndrome. Latest evidence regarding conservative treatment of FAI syndrome is presented as well as demonstrations of suggested manual therapy techniques and exercise prescription.

1. What is FAI Syndrome?

This chapter will introduce new terminology with regards to FAI syndrome from the 2016 Warwick Agreement on FAI syndrome. Research regarding abnormal imaging findings and the correlation with clinical signs and symptoms will be presented along with a discussion regarding epidemiology. Hip kinematics and structural adaptations related to the hip joint will be discussed as well as a comparison of hip musculature to shoulder musculature regarding trends we previously saw with shoulder impingement and how hip impingement may be following the same trajectory.

2. Current State of the Evidence regarding Conservative treatment of FAI syndrome

This chapter will introduce the latest evidence with regards to physical therapy led rehabilitation for FAI syndrome. We will review current rehabilitation programs and highlight some specific manual therapy techniques through demonstrations.

3. Exercise Prescription for Patients with FAI Syndrome

This chapter will highlight the most common exercises utilized to date in successful management of FAI syndrome. This chapter is focused on demonstrations as a useful resource for immediate transfer into the clinic.

There has been a 25-fold increase in the number of hip arthroscopies performed between 2006 and 2013 primarily in response to improved diagnosis and treatment of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) syndrome. This course takes a closer look at the evidence regarding surgical outcomes, highlighting some of the limitations associated with surgery and presents an alternative theory as to why surgery may not be the best option. We go on further to present literature regarding the complex systems approach to sports injuries and offer a proposed model for improving conservative management of FAI syndrome through advanced exercise prescription.
