Emily is a 32 year old office worker and regular gym-goer. She had right anterior hip pain 10 months ago which was diagnosed as hip flexor strain and it responded favourably with previous physio. Her right hip pain has returned since she started cycling to work and she has been referred back to physio. Her recent pelvis X-ray has shown acetabular cross-over sign suggestive of pincer FAI in both her hips.


Like a lot of clinicians, you may see patients like Emily presenting with anterior hip and groin pain in private practice, sports medicine clinics or a primary care setting.


The hip and groin area is often viewed as a “black box” because of the complex anatomy and overlapping pain referral patterns. Whether it is the week-end warrior, yoga enthusiast or the competing triathlete, accurate diagnosis and management of hip and groin pain can be challenging.

Conditions like hip impingement syndromes, labral tears, chondral lesions and ligamentum teres injuries are being increasingly identified as cause of hip and groin pain in the physically active population between the ages of 18-45. Although, various treatment methods are reported there is a lack of consensus on the role of conservative management.


This hands on course will consider the evidence and how this has been integrated into practice. The active treatment section will look at manual techniques in the management of the adult hip patient and comprehensive rehabilitation of articular and extra-articular pathologies. It is designed to be highly practical and full of clinical tips that you can put into practice immediately.

Overview of the complex interaction of the groin and the hip joint including femoro-acetabular impingement, labral lesions, extra-articular pathologies and tendinopathy.

A detailed and a systematic physical examination will be covered using a novel and evidence based tool (The layering concept) for the assessment of the adult hip patient and a solid understanding of differential diagnosis
