Course description
This course will explore the hip joint relative to the young adult population and the emerging diagnosis
of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and associated conditions, inclusive of articular cartilage
pathology. This course will thoroughly explore normal and pathologic hip anatomy, biomechanics
and kinematics. Critical physical therapy examination elements for the hip will be instructed.
Non-operative intervention strategies will be reviewed. We will discuss the surgical approaches
to managing this population and the post-operative care progressions and precautions following
such procedures. Therapy progression strategies and assessment tools for safe return to activity/
sport will be reviewed.
