Gluteal pain is a common musculoskeletal condition affecting a significant percentage of the sporting and general population.

The course examines the various joint related, soft-tissue, and neural structures associated with impairments and management of the anterior, lateral hip and buttock pain.

Anterior Hip and groin pain

The anterior hip pain may pose a conundrum of possibilities to the clinician in determining the source of pain and management for optimal outcomes in this area.

In this course you will be provided with physical tests and detailed examination techniques related to the morphology, movement and muscle impairments associated with hip and groin pain.

Management of lateral hip and Gluteal pain

Lateral hip and gluteal pain can be challenging in both diagnostic and management due to overlapping soft tissue joint and neural structures arising from the pelvis and lumbar spine. Understanding factors that influence adverse loading, are critical to the treatment of this area.

  • Provide therapeutic and exercise strategies in dealing with anterior lateral and posterior hip pain.
  • Understand tendinopathies around the hip and pelvis
