The Adult Hip Patient
12th & 13th November 2018
Tutors: Benoy Matthew and Glen Robbins

Day 1: Differential Diagnosis & Manual Therapy/Day 2: Rehabilitation of Articular & Extra Articular Pathologies

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 weekend warrior, yoga enthusiast or the competing triathlete, accurate diagnosis and management of hip and groin pain can be challenging.

The Level 1 and 2 courses are designed for all therapists who work with physically active patients with anterior hip and groin pain. The aim of those courses is to provide a clear, honest and evidence based look, combined with more than 25 years of joint clinical experience of Benoy Mathew and Glen Robbins. You will learn what does and does not work in the assessment and management of the active hip patient. A key goal would be for you to leave with things that both simplify the hip for you and help differential diagnoses what is going on, in both articular and extra-articular pathologies of the hip.

Book your place now at Early Bird price of £275 instead of the usual price of £325.
