Over recent years in Australia, hip arthroscopic surgery to repair the internal hip pathologies, such as a labrum, ligamentum teres tear or to correct hip deformities that lead to premature osteoarthritis, has been on the increase. However the post-operative care is not as straight forward as other hip injuries and replacement surgeries. This is due to the nature of the repaired tissue, the biomechanics and arthrokinematics of the internal hip and the way in which the procedure is performed.
This course covers the procedures of the hip scope, looks at the biomechanical and anatomical considerations/contraindications to exercise. Addresses the pre and post-operative established protocols and puts in place a rehabilitation protocols that is specific to the skill set of a myotherapist. It addresses the hip progression to function movement and when to refer back to the surgeon if concerns arise. It educates the myotherapist of the protocol that they can implement post hip scope, highlighting the time frames, exercise progression and the end point the rehabilitation.
This course is for myotherapists and seats are strictly limited.
This event contributes 8 PDPs (Category 1) toward Myotherapy Association Australia Member professional development requirements.
