1. Intra-articular Pathology
Understanding the effectiveness of our conservative intervention is the first step in understanding the appropriate management of intra-articular hip pathology. The vast majority of literature related to the management of this patient population is investigating surgical intervention; however, there have been several studies published recently addressing the conservative management of femoroacetabular impingement syndrome. This chapter will show what the literature says with regards to conservative management and how this compares to surgical outcomes.
2. Extra-articular Pathology
Understanding the effectiveness of our conservative intervention is also the first step in understanding the appropriate management of extra-articular hip pathology. This chapter will take you through the staging and pathophysiology of athletes presenting with tendinopathy and how this should affect our exercise prescription.
3. Manual Therapy Considerations
When treating a patient with hip pathology, manual therapy techniques can have a profound effect. That being said, what causes this positive response? Is it biomechanical, neurophysiological, psychological, or some combination? In this chapter, we will discuss these topics as well as the overall effectiveness of manual therapy in this patient population.
4. Exercise Prescription
Understanding the factors that go into appropriate exercise prescription for athletes with hip pain should be the cornerstone of your rehabilitation program. This course will take you through specific loading strategies for various tendinopathies, exercise prescription based on the sEMG literature available, and loading strategies for athletes presenting with femoroacetabular impingement syndrome. This includes selecting the appropriate squat and deadlift variations for this patient population and understanding how to progress these lifts as the irritability of your patient’s condition decreases.
