Through a lecture-based format, this two hour webinar course will offer the critical medical screening/differential diagnosis knowledge of lumbopelvic hip pathology necessary to thrive in today’s healthcare climate. A clinician’s perspective to applying evidence-based practice and clinical decision making will be presented. In order to meet the needs of today’s autonomous practitioner, foundational concepts will describe how medical, orthopedic, and neurological lumbopelvic-hip problems can be present concurrently and potentially interrelated. This course will expand participants understanding of signs and symptoms of various disease processes and how they can mimic lumbopelvic-hip musculoskeletal signs and symptoms, as well as how internal organ systems may present to the neuromusculoskeletal system. Clinical decision making strategies will allow participants to make lumbopelvic-hip treat versus refer decisions with greater confidence.
At the end of this course, the participant will be able to:
- Understand the role of the clinician in an autonomous practice and/or direct access environment.
- Screen for medical, orthopedic and neurological signs and symptoms indicative of any red flags or serious medical disorders.
- Identify signs and symptoms that warrant immediate referral to the physician.
- Identify lumbopelvic pain referral patterns and determine if they are consistent with any internal organ involvement.
- Recognize the constellation of signs and symptoms to make appropriate treat versus refer decisions for Lumbopelvic pain.
