Dynamic Hip Stabilisation
The hip is a complex multidirectional joint, and is often misunderstood. This workshop will discuss dynamic stabilisation of the hip. With a combined approach of lecture, repertoire and Real Time Ultrasound demonstration, we will explore the implication of hip pathology to movement and muscle function. This will give the teacher an understanding of the biomechanics, pathomechanics, and tools to clinically reason through exercise section to hip pathology.
