Femoroacetabular Impingement: Differential Diagnosis, Post-Surgical and Non-Surgical Interventions

Jun 3,2017 - Jun 4,2017 Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Femoroacetabular impingement is described as a mechanical abutment of the femoral head against the acetabulum. The prevalence of diagnosis and subsequent surgery for this pathology has skyrocketed to a 25-fold increase from 2006 to 2013 despite limited evidence supporting this intervention. Non-surgical intervention is also of limited evidence currently with limited investigation being reported. A recent systematic review stated that despite the limited number of studies investigating non-surgical intervention, there does exist evidence showing favorable results with a non-surgical approach. Determination of which patients are surgical candidates continues to be an evasive task. This course will describe the history, anatomy and biomechanics of FAI; as well as discuss the current ‘state of affairs’ with respect to diagnosis and treatment of FAI. The attendee will learn the characteristics of patients diagnosed with FAI, how to perform a structured and evidence-based examination of these patients, as well as how to implement both post-surgical and non-surgical interventions for patients with FAI. Diagnosis of FAI will cover how to read and interpret diagnostic imaging, how to screen for lumbar and pelvic girdle pathology, how to screen for extra-articular hip pathology and how to perform and interpret intra-articular hip clinical examination testing. Surgical intervention will cover the general surgical techniques, as well as the pro’s and con’s of various post-surgical protocols. This course will discuss the use of post-surgical bracing, continuous passive motion machines and other debated topics. Non-surgical intervention will address the current evidence supporting this approach, as well as guide the clinician on how to assess, implement and modify various training parameters such as mobility techniques, muscle performance and patient loading.

Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy Series-Charlottesville

Sep 16,2017 - Feb 11,2018 Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This series of continuing education programs is based on a clinical reasoning model and emphasizes evidence-based examination and treatment.  The course series covers all body regions and incorporates a variety of interventions. The goal of the series is to provide the physical therapist with a comprehensive continuing professional education course and fully prepare them for the ABPTS Orthopedic Clinical Specialty Examination.   This framework will enable the participant to practice in a more efficient and focused manner through the development of clinical skills and a clinical reasoning thought process. The student to instructor (7:1 max), repetition of examination and treatment techniques, and the opportunity to practice clinical reasoning skills will enhance comprehension and retention. Case studies will assist with clinical pattern formation along with the integration of different manual therapy approaches. The use of continuous open discussion will facilitate student/instructor feedback. The course series will provide the clinician with the opportunity to develop the tools to learn from every patient they encounter.
