  • Signs and symptoms of hip pain and dysfunction
  • Trigger point patterns relating to hip pain and dysfunction.
  • Anatomy of the iliacus, psoas major, rectus femoris, tensor fascia late, gluteals, pectineus and deep hip lateral rotators.

  • The importance of gluteus maximus in the treatment of FAIS.
  • How tension in the deep lateral rotators in the hip can perpetuate hip impingement syndromes.
