Movement Solutions for Trochanteric and Lateral Hip Pain – Kinetic Control (KC)
DescriptionPart of our Masterclass Series, this module explores Lateral hip pain, also known as greater trochanteric pain syndrome, which is a very common and often disabling condition and adults, and athletic young people.
It has a higher prevalence in women (15%) than men (6.6%). It is often misdiagnosed because it frequently coexists with low back, pelvic, leg pain and lower quadrant biomechanical impairments.
Treating and managing lateral hip and trochanteric pain requires the diagnosis of the potential contributing structures and mechanisms along with a clinical reasoning strategy to determine priorities in management.
Who’s it for?Kinetic Control courses are designed for registered medical health professionals such as physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, podiatrists etc.
In exceptional circumstances experienced non-medical health professionals may be allowed to attend Kinetic Control courses but these participants MUST be able demonstrate that the course material is within their scope of practice.
If you are not sure if this course is right for you and want to check get in touch.
What’s involved?This module is delivered over one day (6 hours) during which learners are guided through the programme and complete practical assessments.
For added reassurance, each learner is assessed throughout the course using a range of practical demonstrations and learning checks designed to support your successful integration of the content into your clinical practice.
To ensure you get the most effective learning experience, learners must be physically able to participate as you will be required to participate in practical scenario-based training sessions.
- Learners must be at least 18 years old on the first day of the training
- Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2)*
- Certification fees
- Course material
What will I learn?Key learning outcomes are:
- Understand the prevalence of lateral hip and trochanteric pain and white coexists with low back, pelvic and leg impairments
- Be able to recognise the features and presentation of many potential sources of pain. In this region
- Become proficient at palpation and manual assessment of these structures to make a more detailed differential diagnosis of the structures and tissues that contribute to pain
- Perform a movement based biomechanical evaluation of the lower quadrant and analyse related impairments
- Test for and mobilise articular and myofascial restrictions that contribute to mechanical stress and movement compensation in this area
- Perform movement control tests to identify the site and direction of uncontrolled movements in the lumbar spine, pelvis and leg that are related to lateral hip and trochanteric pain
- Develop appropriate movement control retraining options to recover, low threshold (alignment and coordination) and high threshold (strength and speed) impairments identified in the movement control tests
- Assess for and treat related myofascial trigger point contributions
- Evaluate and manage potential neurodynamic influences
- Use a clinical reasoning strategy to develop priorities in management planning
- Understand the value and benefits in movement control rescreening to minimise recurrence of lateral hip and trochanteric pain
