Regional Review of Musculoskeletal Systems: Hip, Groin, and Lower Extremity

Presented by Michael Fink, PT, DSc, SCS, OCS

Regional Review of Musculoskeletal Systems: Hip, Groin, and Lower Extremity

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
NOTE: This course is part of a nine course series by Michael Fink on Medical Screening and Differential Diagnosis*.

Through a lecture and demonstration format, this course will offer a comprehensive look at common musculoskeletal pathologies concerning the hip, groin, and lower extremity. It will introduce evidence and procedures integral to making sound judgments as it relates to medical screening and differential diagnosis within the patient/client management model. It will describe how medical, orthopedic, and neurological problems may be interrelated thus making differential diagnosis of neuromusculoskeletal signs and symptoms difficult. The intent of this course is not to train participants to make a medical diagnosis but rather to be able to recognize when physical therapy is indicated, contraindicated, and when a referral to other health care personnel is needed. Medical Screening and differential diagnosis are essential components in autonomous practice and is within the scope of the physical therapy profession. Possessing good clinical evaluative skills is a critical part of the process for effective differential diagnosis and subsequent management of the "treat versus refer" dilemma.
* This course was previously included in a larger 2-course Medical Screening series on MedBridge. If you have taken one of these two courses previously, the material has already been covered.
