An Integrated and Dynamic Approach To the Pelvic/hip Region
Course: An Integrated and Dynamic Approach to the Pelvic/Hip Region
Contemporary, evidence-based management of pelvic girdle pain requires consideration of the lumbar spine, pelvic girdle and hip regions - an integrated approach. This course will review the anatomy and biomechanics of the SIJ and discuss assessment of this region with respect to the literature. Participants will practice SIJ assessment techniques and gain practical functional assessment skills for differential diagnosis of the patient presenting with pelvic girdle pain.
Presenter: Jennifer Hynes, FACP
1. Review and develop a sound understanding of the applied anatomy and biomechanics of the hip and pelvis, including SIJ
2. Understand current literature and research pertaining to assessment and differential diagnosis of the Lumbar/SIJ/hip complex
3. To carry out an appropriate assessment and differential diagnosis of the SIJ/hip region, including surface anatomy
4. To apply a variety of treatment techniques for the SIJ including mobilisation, myofascial release and basic muscle energy techniques
