This continuing education seminar is targeted to physical therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapist assistants, registered nurses, nurse midwives, and other rehabilitation professionals. Content is not intended for use outside the scope of the learner's license or regulation. Physical therapy continuing education courses should not be taken by individuals who are not licensed or otherwise regulated, except, as they are involved in a specific plan of care.
Upon completion of this continuing education seminar, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the functional anatomy of the hip and pelvis as it applies to the biomechanics of human movement.
2. Assess the muscular and myofascial elements of the functional hip and pelvic slings needed for optimal athletic performance.
3. Understand and apply the concepts of Pelvic Balancing and Manual Movement Therapy in the evaluation, prevention, maintenance, treatment and rehabilitation of hip and pelvic pathologies utilizing a sports medicine philosophy.
4. Develop creative and innovative “sling-based” exercise strategies for effective use in the clinic and for home program.
5. Discuss the most current surgical approaches for the sports hernia and how it relates to sports injuries.
6. List current rehabilitation principles for labral injury repair.
7. Design treatment plans for conditions affecting the hip and pelvic complex including femoroacetabular impingement, as well as the importance of the hip in LE mechanical patellofemoral dysfunction.
8. Utilize video and observational analysis in the diagnosis of movement dysfunction.
9. Apply sports medicine science and kinesiology to clinical conditions affecting the hip and pelvis.

Best course I have had in a while.Thought to provoke challenging and fun.

A great course to emphasize the neuro-motor component of movement that is applicable in all therapy settings. Great information that was presented with enthusiasm and backed by evidence. I was able to take home new exercises that I felt comfortable to apply Monday morning. Thanks!
-Katherine Dixon, PT, DPT - Bryn Mawr, PA
I really appreciated the information, research concept exercises, and application. This is the content I’ve been looking for. I can’t wait to apply this with my patients!

Dr. Dischiavi adds a dimension to the pelvic rehabilitation perspective. All of our patients will be better off since we have taken this course. Excellent!

I would just like to reply that Steve did a fantastic job teaching the course! He was very engaging and researched based. Citations rolled right off his tongue and I implemented learned techniques today back in the clinic. My background is in inpatient neuro, and over the past 6 years, I have ventured into outpatient ortho. This was a wonderful course tying the two together in a very practical method.
Steve is a dynamic and knowledgeable instructor-- I loved his clinical experience as well as research-based knowledge.

The Biomechanical Assessment of the Hip and Pelvis – was a great course. I've been practicing PT for 15 years – so parts were very familiar, but I can never get enough of the pelvis (including SI joint) as it's so complex. Steve shed new light on some old ways of thinking and gave us some great new ways to improve neural pathways and strengthen the hip. Great course and the instructor was wonderful.

I can honestly say that I was really impressed and learned a lot. Steve challenged me to re-think the way that I approach strengthening in all of my patients. As an example, my first patient this morning was an evaluation of urgency/ frequency. We know that adductor trigger points refer to the bladder but today I was thinking more about why the adductors are over-working instead of just using manual therapy to quiet them down. In the end, the patient will benefit from learning how to activate the glutes more effectively and have less potential for Sx recurrence. My treatment plan would have encompassed glute strengthening at some point but I learned this weekend that I need to activate and re-educate the muscles earlier in the rehab process. My next 2 patients both have some potential to include what I've learned as well - I'm really excited about seeing them and applying what I've learned.

The course was actually very well presented. I gained a lot from the experience and feel that it has truly changed the way I assess and treat my patients. I would definitely recommend this course to others.
