Groin pain is one of the most frequent injuries in team sports and is considered complex and difficult to manage.
This course will provide an overview of the evidence related to both the diagnosis and management, and aims to simplify approaches for immediate implementation in clinical practice at all levels.
The diagnosis of groin pain is influenced by a multitude of opinions, uncertainty in etiology, and differing terminology. We will go through the many potential causes of groin pain and discuss how to categorize these into useful entities and specific diagnoses including the interpretation of various imaging findings. We incorporate practical time to ensure participants will feel comfortable in the clinical examination of athletes with groin pain. Additionally, we will focus on how to measure progress objectively with a specific focus on clinical strength testing, and how findings may influence treatment.
We will discuss key elements in the prevention, treatment, and return to sport, using the best available evidence, case discussions, as well as practical examples of specific exercises including discussions on progression, priorities, and decision-making.
The course will consist of a blend of learning styles and will include lectures, interactive group sessions, individual problem solving, practical demonstrations and clinical workshops. Participants should be appropriately dressed for practical components (shorts are essential) and be prepared to contribute to all aspects of the 2 days.
