What if you could know exactly what to do with the next confusing hip injury patient that you see…

We’ve been working with this population for a long time and have seen a multitude of complex, dare we say confusing, issues come into our clinics.

There’s nothing more rewarding than knowing the most effective solution for someone’s problem.

But many professionals struggle with paralysis by analysis when it comes to assessing patient’s hip issues - especially when their issues are subclinical in nature. In this in-depth training, we’re going to simplify the process from assessment to intervention and help you address hip injuries expertly, efficiently and with a newfound confidence!

  • Dynamic screens that save you time
  • Gain a clear understanding of the most common diagnoses…and what to do about them!
  • Bursitis, labral tears, FAI, sprains/strains, sports hernia, SIJ dysfunction and more!
  • Victim vs. culprit – when hip mobility may be to blame for low back pain
  • Dozens of live demonstrations and applications for kinesiology tape, cupping, vibration, dry needling, IASTM, and manual muscle therapy
  • Exercise progressions and regressions to facilitate return to activity

As we share the top 5 assessments and screens that most providers aren’t doing alongside our proven methods to harness power and efficiency through the lumbopelvic/hip complex - you’ll set yourself apart as the go-to resource for hip patients! The vast range of treatment skills and modalities covered in this training are sure to improve your ability to get your patients feeling and moving better.
