From sports hernias to osteoarthritis, hip, groin, and thigh impairments rob millions of people each year of the activities that once defined them. Your hard work in the clinic can help give them back their identity.

But localizing the problem can be a serious challenge and an inadequate diagnosis can quickly lead to ineffective treatment protocols that fall far short of expectations, leaving your patients lost, frustrated, and resigned to surgical options.

If you’ve ever sensed that your exam process is somehow incomplete or your intervention plan isn’t quite addressing the “why” of your patient’s issues, this is the course for you.

Learn how to get to the root cause of impairment faster with streamlined examination strategies that allow you to spend more time treating critical patient problems. Upgrade your therapy toolbox with innovative interventions you can use immediately to accelerate functional recovery. And design advanced plans of care for a variety of common diagnoses, fluently combining techniques for outcomes that will earn you referrals.

Watch J.C. Anderson, PhD, ATC, PT, SCS, FMSC, in this recording as he shares a proven framework for rehabilitation that combines today’s best practices with over 33 years of experience helping patients recover from hip, groin, and thigh impairments in a variety of practice settings.
