The hip is a complex joint with components of both mobility and stability. When your patient experiences pain at the hip - is the origin truly the hip joint or is it part of a dysfunctional kinetic chain?

With this practical approach to management of the hip complex, you can stop guessing what the next treatment step is and discover the true origin of the issue. You’ll learn actionable screening and assessment strategies for the hip alongside a multidimensional treatment strategy to address those with a diagnosis and those without.

  • No more going through tests for the sake of it – get an in depth review of special tests for effective evaluation and relation to anatomy for meaningful conclusions 
  • Seamlessly integrate NEW and functional assessments
  • Quickly identify orthopedic, neurologic and soft tissue contributions to dysfunction
  • Better understand how the global picture of the human in front of you is so critical to lumbopelvic complex 
  • Explore a unique breakdown of kinetic chains that emphasizes the importance of various body regions and their properties for mobility or stability & optimal function

You’ll walk through applications of how to address the most common dysfunctions of the hip with progressive and regressive strategies for treating pain, mobility, stability, and motor control.  Learn how to resolve hip pain with all of today’s best treatments including cupping, compression floss, kinesiology tape and corrective exercise strategies
