Conservative Management of Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction & Hip Impingement
The National Institutes of Health states that millions of Americans spend at least $50 billion a year to alleviate the stress and discomfort in their low back. A common, yet enigmatic cause of this debilitating pain is the malalignment of the sacroiliac joint (SIJ). At first glance, however, many rehab professionals and even surgeons believe other back and hip injuries, such as facet-joint syndrome or a bulging disc, are the reasons for the pain. X-rays, MRIs, and even CT scans might show narrowing spinal discs or other possible factors producing the problem; yet these tests have minimal benefit because they oftentimes fail to show the exact source of the client’s pain. It is important to accurately identify and diagnose pain from the SIJ’s and pain from hip impingement. Medical professionals may misdiagnose the problem and intervention may be unsuccessful. In some cases, surgery is performed unnecessarily. In order to help restore and prevent future pain in patients, rehab professionals need the proper tools to accurately identify both SIJD and Hip Impingement to manage them appropriately.
In this comprehensive two-day certificate workshop, participants gain the tools to assess and treat patients with SIJD and/or hip impingement. Kyndall Boyle, PT, PhD, OCS, PRC, who has nearly 25 years of experience as a clinician and researcher, shares the latest evidence in the field, along with rationale for conservative intervention. She discusses relevant anatomy and biomechanics, including issues of bilateral and unilateral instability and postural asymmetry, as well as examines the relationship between SIJD and hip impingement, and the relationship between SIJD, suboptimal respiration, posture, and motor control. Participants immediately take home the knowledge needed to assess and treat SIJD by examining a case study, case series, and a randomized controlled trial. During the interactive lab portion of the class, participants expand their hands-on skills by practicing therapeutic exercises to manage SIJD and hip impingement.
Leave with a certificate of recognition for your expanded knowledge and increased skill set into evaluating and treating this patient population.
