Tears and Dysplastic Morphology
Dr. Thomas Wuerz MD, MSc, MS
Wednesday July 8, 2020 5:00-6:30PM EST
CEU: 1.25 Category A
Describe the pathological anatomy of hip microinstability.

Relate the pathological anatomy of injury to clinical evaluation findings and diagnostic imaging.
Understanding the Role of Alternative Therapies in the Treatment of Complex Hip Pathology
Jennifer Concannon, DAT, ATC, LAT
Wednesday July 15, 2020 5:00-6:30PM EST
CEU: 1.25 Category A
Illustrate the pain processing pathways and theories related to acute and chronic pain patterns and the individualized role of pain as it relates to patients with hip pathology.
Explain the concepts of therapeutic objectives and modifiers as it relates to the therapeutic intervention process.
Describe the pain modulation theories and techniques related to dry needling from a localized perspective to a systemic response.
Demonstrate dry needling techniques for patients experiencing symptomatic hip microinstability.
Summarize the pain modulation theories and techniques related to myofascial decompression
Demonstrate myofascial decompression techniques for patients experiencing symptomatic hip microinstability.
Hitting the Reset Button: Advanced Manual Therapy Techniques to Restore Mobility, Stability and Symmetry to the Athletic Lumbo-Pelvic Hip Complex
Kelly Perkins ATC, LAT, CSCS
Wednesday July 22, 2020 5:00 - 6:30PM EST
Describe the gait, stance asymmetries as they relate to somatic dysfunction.
Illustrate palpation of a “barrier” as well as facilitated segments and describe their physiologic significance.
Demonstrate palpation of basic bony landmarks of the pelvis, sacrum and lumbar spine.
Identify common trigger points and referral patterns that can result from pelvic, sacral and lumbar asymmetry with mobility dysfunction.
Analyze asymmetry and compare somatic function between innominate rotations, as well as the sacrum and lumbar spine.
Memorize the proper sequence for evaluating and treating pelvic and lumbo-sacral dysfunction.
Illustrate muscle energy techniques for the pelvic, sacrum and lumbar spine.
Kinetic Chain Movement Interventions for Hip Pathology
Nick Conte DPT, PT, ATC, CSCS
Wednesday July 29, 2020 5:00 -6:30PM EST
Describe the anatomy and clinical significance of the diaphragm in relation to preparatory movement patterns.
Explain the pathomechanics of the hip complex as it relates to dysfunction breathing patterns.
Evaluate the positive association between diaphragmatic breathing patterns a kinetic chain exercises within the therapeutic exercise process.
Examine the kinetic chain rehabilitation approach to therapeutic exercise programming in patients with hip pathology.
Describe a progressive approach to retraining the kinetic chain.
Present a functional and dynamic progression to integrate the kinetic chain into sport specific goals.
