Session Level: Intermediate
The rate of surgical intervention for activity related intra-articular hip pain has increased 2600% from 2004 to 2016, and is expected to continue to rise. A greater number of surgeons are using hip arthroscopy as a treatment strategy for patients with hip pain. One-third of this 2600% growth is new surgeons, therefore, the number of physical therapists who will be treating these patients is increasing and will continue to increase. Large increases in surgical utilization have historically been followed by a lapse in postsurgical rehabilitation, planning, and implementation. This session provides participants with in-depth understanding of hip joint pathology, how these various pathologies are treated surgically, and delivers the best evidence synthesis of postsurgical rehabilitation. Postsurgical guidelines include current evidence support as well as proposed guidance based on principles of biomechanics, biological healing, and neuromuscular training.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
1. Explain the various intra-articular hip joint pathomechanics.
2. Differentiate the structural variations/pathologies that contribute to intra-articular hip pain.
3. Describe key considerations regarding surgical intervention with respect to the principally discussed pathologies.
4. Define and label key components of postsurgical rehabilitation with respect to the principally discussed pathologies.
5. List key patient variables associated with poor surgical outcomes and success.
