Hip Labral Injury, Illiotibial Band Syndrome, & Patellofemeral Pain Syndrome: Research Update on Conventional & Integrated (Yoga) Rehab-On-Demand Webinar

November 27, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


*NOTE:  This 2 hour webinar is MODULE 10 Part IVand can be taken as a stand alone course or as part of the professional yoga therapist designation (PYT).  What is the PYT designation?  The PYT designation is a 15 module certification program for health care professionals in medical therapeutic yoga.  Allied Health Education currently offers Modules 1 – 7 & 10 parts 1 & 2 as on-demand webinars under our on-line, self-study course offerings.  Modules 8 & 9 are live, on-site courses.  Modules do not have to be completed in order.  If you think you might be interested in earning your PYT designation or would like to learn more please contact Ginger Garner at www.gingergarner.com andwww.professionalyogatherapy.org.

Course Description

This webinar reviews the latest evidence in lower quarter injury prevalence, risk, and management, and gives the clinician the tools necessary for immediate intervention. Clinicians will use case study application(s) via a biopsychosocial and integrated evaluative paradigm that combines physical therapy and yoga (medical therapeutic yoga) for achieving greater overall systemic effects during strength, conditioning, and rehabilitation of the lower quarter.

New research for lower quarter injury prevention and management will be reviewed, including:

Hip labral injury differential diagnosis, including discussion of surgical techniques
Iliotiibial band and patellofemoral syndrome

The biopsychosocial model assists in designing programs for both pathophysiology and prevention based and is supported by the World Health Organization and validated in numerous studies. The course the latest evidence-base and evolves clinical care for a more thorough, holistic approach.

Course Objectives

At the end of this course, the participant will be able to:

Describe how the biopsychosocial conceptual model can improve health care and its delivery in the US through its holistic evaluative methodology.
List the evidence based methodology for incorporating the medical yoga model into current rehabilitation programs.
Identify five points for diagnosis and intervention in evidence based conventional rehabilitation of the ITB in order to understand the integrative model of medical therapeutic yoga in the PYT method.
Describe four critical factors for implementation of multi-faceted integrative therapeutic programming for iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS) and patellofemoral (PF) considerations using the pentagon of wellness conceptual model.
List the three postures necessary to facilitate completion of the acute and subacute ITBS programming in medical therapeutic yoga.
Critically analyze yoga postures and breathing techniques in a case study format in order to prescribe intervention for extrinsic risk factors in prevention or management of ITBS and PF considerations.
Identify the 2 categories for differential diagnosis of the hip and the 5 evidence based risk factors for intra-articular hip labral injury in order to understand how intra-articular hip joint injury could be avoided.
Describe the morphological classification system of labral tears in order to identify the  most accepted provocative tests used in identification of intra-articular hip joint injury.
Discuss current evidence based medical management, including surgical intervention, for labral tears and related secondary injuries of the hip.
