North American Seminars Introduces a New Online Continuing Education Course for Physical Therapists, Examination and Treatment of the Hip Joint
Date:5/30/2013

Franklin, TN (PRWEB) May 30, 2013

It is important to be able to differentiate between intra-articular (pathologies such as femoroacetabular impingement [FAI], acetabular labral tears, and chondral damage) and extra-articular pathologies (such as: snapping hip, greater trochanteric bursitis and hip flexor pathologies). This physical therapy online continuing education cours will instruct the therapist how to perform a comprehensive clinical evaluation develop systematic treatment plans including the latest evidence-based interventions. Current concepts of how the hip region may also play a role in other lower extremity injuries, such as patellofemoral pain syndrome and iliotibial band syndrome are also discussed. Michael P. Reiman , PT, DPT, OCS, SCS, ATC, FAAOMPT, CSCS narrates this online physical therapy continuing education course.

This PT online CEU course provides detailed description of hip physical examination testing, including how to rule out other the lumbar spine and SI joint/pelvic girdle as potential pain generators. The online continuing education course for PT and PTA's and supplemental written material provide the clinician with great detail on how to perform examination of the hip joint, the tests to implement, what patients they should be performed on, what entails a positive (or negative test), and the diagnostic accuracy of such tests. Another great feature of this online physical therapy continuing education course and written material is the interventions shown and described. The clinician can clearly see how to perform manual therapy, stretching, and strengthening techniques as they apply to the hip pain patient. Detailed information regarding proper set-up, hand placement, technique, re-assessment, and EMG values (exercises) are given in order for the clinician to make informed decisions on which interventions are most clinically applicable in their various types of patients.

This online PT CME course objectives are as follows:

  • Perform a Differential Diagnosis examination to rule out the Lumbar Spine, SI Joint and stress fractures when assessing for specific hip diagnosis. Repeated Motions (Flexion and Extension) of Lumbar Spine, Posterior-Anterior Glide Assessment for Facet Joint Dysfunction, Extension Rotation Test for Facet Joint Dysfunction, Thigh Thrust Test, Patellar-Pubic Percussion Test, Fulcrum Test of Femur, Hip Range-of-Motion, Craig's Test, Heel Strike Test, Resisted SLR Test, Hip Scour Test, FABER (Flexion-Abduction-External Rotation) Test, Dial Test, Log Roll Test, Abduction-Extension-External Rotation Test, Flexion-Adduction-Axial Compression Test, Flexion-Internal Rotation Test, Internal Rotation-Flexion-Axial Compression Test, FADDIR (Flexion-Adduction-Internal Rotation) Test and more. Download a course brochure for a complete list.
  • Understand the definitions of diagnostic accuracy when reviewing the efficacy of specific examination and treatment approaches in relation to the hip joint.
  • Enhance examination skills by performing differential diagnostic tests to determine the underlying mechanisms of hip dysfunction and pain. Ruling out: poor alignment, hip intra-articular pathology, hip intra-articular/instability pathology, impingement labral tears, muscle dysfunction and gluteal tendinopathy.
  • Perform appropriate joint mobilization techniques for the hip joint dysfunction.
  • Develop evidence based rehabilitation programs for specific dysfunctions that are based on current scientific literature.
