The Hip and Trunk Symposium has been developed to offer clinicians the opportunity of learning about the most contemporary and relevant techniques for treatment, diagnostics, management and rehabilitation of hip and trunk pathologies. In addition, the program will look to identify mechanisms of injury and determining whether the primary pain generator is either intra-articular, extra-articular or referred pain from somewhere along the kinetic chain. Recognizing at which layer the problem exists may allow the clinician to provide the patient with more educated outcome predictors. It will look at how LE articular and trunk structure, motion, weakness and dysfunction affect the hip. The continuum of diagnostics and care will also be discussed to insure your future patients are utilizing the most appropriate forms of medical, orthopedic and rehabilitation interventions currently available at this time. Finally, the course will offer empirical suggestions and interpretation of scientific evidence for returning patients back to pain free and unaltered ADL's, recreational activities and competitive endeavors.
