- Learning Goals
If participants seize the opportunity to learn throughout the course, then they will have the opportunity to become knowledgeable regarding the following;
- Understand pathoanatomy for helping to direct care and develop appropriate treatment programs.
- Recognize the signs and symptoms between the different trunk and hip pathologies.
- Be able to implement an appropriate treatment protocol for both the non-operative and operative hip patient.
- Be able to perform an examination that identifies intra-articular pathology, extra-articular pathology, trunk pathology or referred signs and symptoms.
- Be able to understand articular and soft tissue structure and its influence on both abnormal joint mechanics and movement dysfunction.
- Be familiar with surgical procedures to best develop appropriate treatment protocols that insure protection of addressed tissues.
- Be able to identify the similarities and differences between athletic pubalgia and hip, spine, and/or medical pathology.
- Be able to develop treatment progressions that expedite recovery and avoid inflammatory setbacks.
- Become familiar with how structural abnormalities and movement dysfunctions must be considered when developing strength and conditioning programs for return to sport or fundamental movement patterns.
- Be able to recognize history and symptoms indicative of helping to direct patient referral to appropriate source of care.
- Behavioral Objectives
- Relate two strategies for clinical evaluation of the hip using patho-anatomy and compensatory soft tissue differential diagnosis.
- Describe three symptoms that differentiate trunk and hip pathologies.
- Synthesize an appropriate treatment protocol for the non-operative hip patient.
- Contrast and compare two trunk exercises in Open and Closed Chain
- Develop a plan that identifies intra-articular pathology, extra-articular pathology, trunk pathology or referred signs and symptoms.
- Describe three elements in developing an appropriate treatment protocol for a patient following Hip Arthroscopy.
- Synthesize a three step trunk stabilization program
- Relate two similarities between athletic pubalgia and hip, spine, and/or medical pathology.
- Develop a strength and conditioning program for return-to-play athlete taking into account structural abnormalities and movement dysfunctions.

ProCert has awarded certification in the amount of 15 Continuing Competence Units (CCUs) to this activity. CCUs are a unit of relative value of an activity based on its evaluation against a rigorous and comprehensive set of standards representing the quality of an activity. The CCU determination is a valuation applying many factors including, but not limited to, duration of the activity. No conclusion should be drawn that CCUs correlate to time (e.g. hours).
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.
