Course Description and content

This multi-day course is structured in 2 parts:

Part I is presented by Prof. Dr. Donald A. Neumann, physiotherapist, author, scholar, and teacher. Prof. Dr. Neumann provides the foundations of muscle-and-joint kinesiology of the shoulder, based primarily from his international bestselling Kinesiology textbook: Neumann DA: Kinesiology of the Musculoskeletal System: Foundations for Physical Rehabilitation, 3rd edition (Elsevier 2017 - translated in 7 languages).

Part II is presented by Mr. James Moore, physiotherapist currently employed by The British Olympic Association (BOA), where he has three roles; Head of Performance for all Olympic Games, managing The Intensive Rehabilitation Unit (IRU) and leading on research to align with the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Concurrently, James is the Sports and Exercise Medicine Director for a private clinic in London, The Centre for Health & Human Performance (CHHP).

These unique combinations of top notch international instructors provide a wide range of basic science and clinical information, from detailed joint structure, muscle function, to the latest in assessment and rehabilitation approaches to the hip, involving multiple pathologies.

The evidence-based anatomic and kinesiologic principles discussed in this course will provide a foundation for a wide range of clinical practices through the demonstration of assessment and treatment techniques, from pediatrics to geriatrics, from both neurologic and orthopaedic perspectives.

Part I (theoretical foundations) - Prof. Dr. Neumann

Prof. Dr. Neumann’s course is presented through lecture and demonstration, enhanced by videos of cadaver dissections and gait animations. In addition, the presentation shows unique teaching models and many original anatomic and kinesiologic illustrations. The illustrations clearly describe the anatomic and mechanical basis for ideal and abnormal movement and posturing of the hip and lumbar spine.

After this course, participants shall be able to:

  1. Understand the functional architecture of the proximal femur and acetabulum.
  2. Understand the role of the ligaments and capsule of the hip in providing stability to the joint.
  3. Describe hip kinematics from both a femoral-on-pelvic and pelvic-on-femoral perspectives.
  4. Understand the inter-relationships between movement and muscle actions of the hip and lumbar spine.
  5. Cite primary functional role of the muscles of the hip, including how their function of each can be altered by biomechanical and physiologic variables (such as length, joint position, or leverage).
  6. Understand how the position and stability of the hip influences the posture of the trunk and lower limb.
  7. Understand the important role of the hip abductor muscles in generating forces and stability at the hip.

Part II (practical/hands-on) – Mr. James Moore

This practical section of the course will seamlessly follow on from Professor Neumann’s day and a half of of presentations. During this section we will consider the evidence base regarding intra and peri-articular pathology and how the to control the dynamic stability of the hip joint. This will aid your ability to to clearly differentiate out the true cause of hip pain and how to manage it. Simple assessment strategies will enable participants to design effective treatment interventions, which will be related to the functional needs of the patient. By using a systematic approach to assess the hip, it will provide direct management strategies that can be utilised from day 1 in the clinical setting. This section of the course will be delivered in short practical sessions allowing time for the participants to practice the techniques.

After this course, participants shall be able to:

  • Day 2 - Have a clear understanding of the evidence based behind assessment of the hip joint and the surrounding musculature, how to assess the ROM of the hip joint and what are the constraints, how to assess for provocation of the hip joint, how to assess for peri-articular instability of the hip joint, how to assess the role of the medial musculature around the hip joint, how to assess the role of the anterior musculature around the hip joint, how to assess the role of the posterior & lateral musculature around the hip joint, and how to combine the assessment together to have a compressive evaluation of the hip
  • Day 3 – Have a clear understanding of what is the role of the kinetic chain and functional movement in assessing hip function, what are the treatment options, soft-tissue versus manual therapy, to be able to demonstrate how to effectively load the medial hip compartment, how to effectively load the anterior hip compartment, how to effectively load the posterior-lateral compartment and how to put the assessment and treatment options together in a case study review.

Notes to course convener

Day 2 - only requires the course participants to be able to make notes and participate in the practical assessment sessions. To this end no special equipment is essential, however, if you had the following it would add extra value: a pressure cuff, a Hand held Dynamometer, an inclinometer and a tape measure.
Day 3 - this requires the course participants to exercise and treat with manual therapy & soft tissue.
