There will be a particular focus on functional screening and movement analysis to guide exercise prescription and progression. Various training models and exercise regimes (Single leg training, Posterior Chain Strength, Hip Stabilisation, Dynamic Core Strength training) will be explored.

There will be a practical demonstration of running analysis to identify inefficient running patterns and develop interpretation skills and correct basic running technique if indicated. Particular emphasis will be placed on analysing running biomechanics using Video Analysis and then correcting movement dysfunction through movement re-education and movement re-patterning, utilising a variety of tools. The evidence behind and practical application of running retraining and adjunctive interventions are also explored.  Read more…

The Adult Hip Patient

Hip-Course
  • 12th & 13th November 2018
  • Taught by Benoy Matthew & Glen Robbins
  • Early Bird Price: £250
  • Standard Price: £275

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.  Read more…
