HIP IMPINGEMENT: Non-operative and Post-operative Management

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and labral tears are being diagnosed more frequently and managed with conservative and surgical means more promptly. FAI is more commonly found in young athletes, especially in sports that involve a lot of cutting and directional changes. FAI is also thought to be a primary risk factor for developing hip osteoarthritis (OA), and as such is being diagnosed in the general population as well. The improved ability to identify patients with symptomatic FAI presents an opportunity for rehabilitation professionals to intervene. This requires a detailed understanding of the anatomy and biomechanics of the hip and lumbopelvic complex. Additionally, clinicians need to perform a thorough examination to identify primary impairments that may be amenable to conservative measures. For patients requiring surgery to address FAI, clinicians need to understand principles of the post-operative management and potential complications associated with the recovery to effectively intervene. This webinar will provide clinicians with assessment and treatment techniques, as well as post-operative guidelines to effectively manage patients with FAI for return to functional activities.
