The hip joint is a crucial proximal segment in charge of transmitting ground reaction forces to the sacrum and spine. Ergo learning treatment and diagnostic techniques are paramount to optimize recovery from injury at the hip9CCUs (6 live with an additional 3 Virtual CCUs of pre-course study material to maximize face-to-face lab time.)

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:
1. Integrate key anatomical, biomechanical, and pathomechanical information into the examination scheme and subsequent treatment planning;
2. Assemble and consider all relevant information from the subjective and bjective examination for making a sound impairment and pathology-based diagnosis involving the hip;
3. Recognize appropriate common evaluative and treatment precautions and contraindications following common post-operative cases of the hip;
4. Perform detailed movement analysis and relevant special tests at the hip for the purpose of pathology and impairment-based diagnosis while cognizant of the reliability, validity, and accuracy of the testing procedures;
5. Perform manual techniques, including joint mobilization, joint manipulation, and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation for the purpose of relieving pain and increasing mobility;
6. Recognize exercise techniques to the hip for the purpose of relieving pain, increasing mobility, and increasing strength.
