Do you find differential diagnosis with some chronic gluteal pain difficult? Would you like a clear understanding on how best to approach deep gluteal syndrome, ischio-femoral impingement and proximal hamstring tears?
Chronic gluteal pain is a common presentation in the general and sporting population. Conditions like deep gluteal syndrome, ischio-femoral impingement and proximal hamstrings tendinopathy are common sources of chronic gluteal pain in the physically active population.
In this webinar you will discover:
- How to assess and diagnose common sources of hip pain
- How to identify hip and lumbar spine red flags
- Exactly how you can perform an assessment to test and differentially diagnose the structures involved in your patients pain
The complex anatomy of the buttock and pelvis, variability of presentation and non-specific nature of signs and symptoms make the diagnostic process difficult. The lumbar spine may refer into the posterior hip and groin, and mimic other pathology. The presentation of gluteal strains, hamstring tendinopathy/ tears or sacroiliac joint pathology is similar and for the clinician, eliciting the significant features in order to differentially diagnose can be difficult. Whether it is the weekend warrior, yoga enthusiast or the competing triathlete, accurate diagnosis and management of chronic gluteal pain can be challenging. This webinar will help you overcome these challenges, and improve your results with posterior hip and gluteal pain.
Key Learning Outcomes:
Overview of the complex interaction of the buttock, pelvis and the hip joint, to enable the clinician to discriminate more easily between pathological conditions
A detailed and systemic examination will be covered using an evidence-based approach for the assessment of the chronic gluteal patient and a solid understanding of differential diagnosis
In Parts 2 & 3 of this masterclass you will further discover:
- Clinical presentation and current management principles of pathologies including deep gluteal syndrome, ischio-femoral impingement, proximal hamstring tendinopathy/tears and clinical insights on managing complex presentation
- Practical application of rehab exercises including progression of stabilisation, strength and mobility exercises for the different pathologies, in the gluteal region
- Integration of theory, current evidence and treatment tools with case studies
Part 1- How to assess and differentially diagnose chronic gluteal pain
Part 2- How you can treat deep gluteal syndrome and ischio-femoral impingement
Part 3- Treatment of proximal hamstring tendinopathy and avulsions
Clinical Impact: Current evidence-based evaluation and management of chronic gluteal pain and overview of emerging pathologies such as deep gluteal syndrome, ischio-femoral impingement, proximal hamstrings tendinopathy and avulsions.
