Understanding Tendinopathies of the Hip & Pelvis
Tendinopathies of the hip and pelvis represent a large burden on both the sporting and ageing populations. Growing evidence is shaping contemporary conservative management of tendinopathy. This course provides participants with guidance towards a deeper understanding of tendinopathies of the hip and pelvis, and more effective clinical management. The information presented is based on both an emerging evidence base derived from scientific studies on structure and mechanobiological mechanisms, risk factors, impairments and the available information on effects of intervention, and over 20 years of clinical experience
The Aim of the course is to;
Bring together the available information on tendinopathies of the hip and pelvis with a particular focus on pathoaetiological mechanisms.
Provide a clinical interpretation of the scientific data with direction and practical ideas for management
Highlight areas where research is deficient for those interested in adding to our evidence base for contemporary clinical practice in this field.
Teach practical skills involved in assessment & management of tendinopathies of the hip & pelvis.
Practical Workshop Summary
The Practical Day will involve assessment techniques (diagnostic tests, and tests related to forming a hypothesis regarding each individual’s aetiological mechanisms) and management techniques (appropriate control of loading, posture and movement retraining and development of an exercise programme).
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
Describe basic tendon structure, and biological mechanisms occurring in both a homeostatic state and in a pathological tendon
Describe anatomical relationships, impairments, and postural and loading habits that may predispose to the development of each of the tendinopathies addressed – Gluteal tendinopathy, proximal hamstring tendinopathy, iliopsoas tendinopathy & adductor tendinopathy
Assess appropriately using specific diagnostic tests, and tests of aetiological mechanisms
Develop maximally effective intervention programmes including both load management and exercise prescription
Participants will also gain online access to;
2.8 hours of lectures over 6 lessons dealing with the in depth anatomy, pathology, and pathomechanics thought to be involved with gluteal tendinopathy, proximal hamstring tendinopathy, iliopsoas tendinopathy, and adductor longus tendinopathy and adductor related groin pain.
Presented as powerpoint lectures with slides, audio, and printable notes.
You may stop, rewind and play as many times as you like.
Online forum for discussion
Access for 3 months from time of enrollment
About Dr Alison Grimaldi
With 25 years of clinical experience and particular expertise in the management of hip, groin and lumbo-pelvic pain and dysfunction, Alison is Principal Physiotherapist at Physiotec and an Adjunct Research Fellow at the University of Queensland.
Alison has a special interest in the assessment and optimisation of lumbo-pelvic and lower limb biomechanics for running, change of direction and all weightbearing sports, aiming to maximize an athlete’s performance outcomes and minimize risks of injury or re-injury.
Alison has published a number of papers in scientific journals, is a visiting lecturer at Masters level at Queensland University and has also conducted workshops for physiotherapy teams working with high performance sport at the Australian Institute of Sport and High Performance Sport New Zealand.
It is one of Alison’s core beliefs that research should be relevant to clinical practice. She is committed to sharing the knowledge she has gained in over 25 years of practice, so that other therapists can transfer this knowledge into their clinical practice as quickly as possible.
