1. Introduction of the Hip
Define Hip and/or Groin pain. Gain an understanding of hip related pain patterns.
2. Patient History and Outcomes Measures
Discuss key components of patient history during a hip examination. Discuss the “best” forms of self-reported patient reported outcome measures for hip pain and function. Discuss reported Minimally Clinical Important Difference scores for self reported outcome measures related to the hip.
3. Observation of the Hip
Recognize selected observations that may be associated with disease processes.
4. Triage and Screening of the Hip
Identify the best tests used to diagnose red flag conditions of the hip. Compare and contrast different tests used for differential diagnosis. Identify structural screening tests to rule out competing diagnoses.
5. Movement Assessment of the Hip
Understand the nature of the patient’s condition. Identify the concordant sign reproductive of the patient’s signs/symptoms. Perform functional testing, active and passive physiological and passive accessory movement examination.
6. Palpation and Manual Muscle Testing for the Hip
