The Hip: Assessment of Hip Injuries in Athletes
presented by Ashley Campbell & Mike Voight

The multilayered anatomy of the hip, as well as its close proximity to complex regions such as the lumbar spine and SI joint, can create a challenge for the orthopedic and sports clinician when assessing and diagnosing hip related pathologies. This course will break down the anatomy of the hip layer by layer with a focus on the critical structures relevant to physical therapy. We will then guide you through an organized examination of the hip and finally review radiographic and other advanced diagnostic imaging utilized in the evaluation of hip pathologies. Upon completion of this course, the participant should feel confident in their foundational knowledge of the hip anatomy, be able to perform a well organized exam of the hip, and understand the common findings and terminology associated with imaging of the hip.

    When children are given the opportunity to move and explore in natural ways, they develop as they should, correct? Often times there are roadblocks that get in the way of natural child development. These roadblocks are sometimes created by adults caring for children and are sometimes biological factors that go undetected. In this lecture, the presenters will identify 10 of the most common roadblocks to early development, provide an educational and research based framework to identify these roadblocks, and share practical strategies to address these needs.

    Roadblocks covered in this unique problem/solution based lecture include: lack of tummy time/container use, prolonged use of a bottle/pacifier, media use, undetected gearing and undetected vision loss with special attention to cortical visual impairment (CVI), faulty parental understanding of development, over-parenting, the perfect child, the role of nutrition in development, and missed diagnoses, with a detailed look at Autism. Pediatric therapists play a huge role in early identification of biological and environmental factors that can affect early learning and development. This detail rich course will prepare you for that important role. Learn more
