1. Return to Sport Epidemiology
Understanding the prognosis and return to sport likelihood for patients following conservative and surgical management is paramount in devising the end stages of rehabilitation. This chapter will discuss return to sport likelihood for specific pathologies, reinjury rates, and factors that influence these figures.
2. Injury Prevention and Risk Assessment
In devising the end stages of rehabilitation, it is necessary to understand what puts athletes at increased risk for injury and what we can do to help decrease these modifiable risk factors. This chapter will take you through a framework to understand the complexity of injury prediction and the effectiveness of risk reduction for athletes with hip and groin pain.
3. Return to Sport Framework
Return to sport determination is a complicated process that involves multiple potential factors. In order to make a well-informed decision, it is important to have a thorough framework in place. This chapter will discuss the theory and ease of application of the StAART Framework to improve the consistency and accuracy of return to sport determination.
4. Evaluation of Health Status
The evaluation of health status involves taking into consideration patient demographics, current symptoms, past medical history, physical examination findings, radiology, functional testing, and psychological state. This chapter will help clinicians evaluate these factors as they relate to hip pathology in order to successfully return their athletes to sport.
