The Spine, Pelvis and Hip: An Evidence Based Update. Live Event

Jointly Provided by University Orthopaedic Associates, LLC and the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.

rutgers-rwjms    University Orthopaedic Associates

Overview:

Injury to the spine, pelvis and hip are some of the most common injuries seen in an orthopaedic practice and may account for up to 15-20% of sporting related visits to the emergency room. Spinal, pelvic and hip injuries most commonly occur to soccer, baseball, volleyball and football athletes but they are also frequently seen in athletes who are involved start/stop activities, running and collision sports. Adolescents as well as adults can be dramatically impacted by these injuries.

Change of direction, hyperextension and overuse can place extremely high stresses on the spine, pelvis and hip resulting in injuries to the bony, ligamentous and muscular structures. Working in an integrated and coordinated fashion, the spine, pelvis and hip serve as the basis for support for locomotion and movement. Impairment of normal function can dramatically impact mobility, function and quality of life.

Athletes involved in collision sports may suffer traumatic injury to their spine, pelvis and hip. Fractures and subluxations can cause significant injury which may result in paralysis and death A firm grasp of anatomy, biomechanics, and early recognition of spinal, pelvis and hip disorders is vital for appropriate management strategies. Understanding the goals of conservative and surgical management is important for practitioners who are working with athletes with these injuries who wish to return to sporting activity. Preventative exercise programs are recommended to reduce the incidence of spine, pelvic and hip injury in sports.

This activity will comprehensively address hot topics related to spinal, pelvic and hip injury in sports and provide evidence based recommendations for optimal management of these injuries.

Goal of the meeting:

The purpose of this activity will be to discuss the current concepts associated with spine, pelvic and hip injury and care. We will review the existing body of research in order to help the clinician make better sense of their understanding of spine, pelvic and hip injury, treatment and rehabilitation options for their patients.

Registration:

Please complete the registration form on the right. . There will be a minimal, non-refundable tuition fee of $35 assessed which must be paid by credit card at the time of registration. Course registration includes continental breakfast, refreshment break, lunch, continuing education credits, and course materials.

Target Audience:

This activity is designed for primary care and sports medicine physicians, athletic trainers, physician assistants, and physical therapists who have interest in spinal, pelvic and hip injury.

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of this program, attendees should be better able to:

  • Recognize common risk factors of spinal, pelvic and hip injury.
  • Describe common injury mechanisms of spinal, pelvic and hip injury.
  • Review various conservative and operative treatment options for athletes with spinal, pelvic or hip injury.
  • Describe the current imaging methodologies used to evaluate patients with spinal, pelvic and hip injury.
  • List the goals, criteria and benchmarks for spinal rehabilitation and progression.
  • Identify factors that influence femoral acetabular injury.
  • Describe the imaging approaches for the identification of pubalgia and the conservative and operative treatment options.
  • Discuss preventative strategies for reducing spinal, pelvic and hip injury.
