Comprehensive Treatment of the Hip: From the Spine to the Foot

Often, evaluations of the hip complex collect overwhelming amounts of information, yet leave us without a clear treatment strategy. This course will provide you with a central theme to treat the hip and simplify the methodology to find hip dysfunction, assess it and treat it. You’ll learn and practice MET and mobilizations of areas that influence the hip, including the spine, pelvis, hip/knee and ankle/foot regions. We’ll also cover treatment through myofascial release of all muscles that directly and indirectly affect hip function. These techniques will help you “think local while acting global” to expose hidden drivers of hip pain and dysfunction. At the completion of this course, you’ll be able to treat most any hip diagnosis with confidence and comprehensiveness, as well as achieve immediate improved functional results with your patients.

 

As with all our manual therapy courses, this course is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give you skills you can use immediately upon returning to the clinic!

Course Instructors

Steven Sanders

PT, MSPT, DPT, CIMT

Steven graduated with a B.S. in Health Science, Minor in Sports Medicine/Athletic Training at Northern Illinois University in 1992. While representing his school on a swimming scholarship he gained experience working with high school, college and professional athletes. Upon graduation, Steven transferred into and completed his M.S. in Physical Therapy from D’Youville College in Buffalo, NY. Graduating in 1996, he then worked as a travel therapist while attending higher education with emphasis on becoming a foot and ankle clinical specialist. He eventually settled into Tucson, AZ, where he continued his pursuit for higher education, ultimately graduating from the University of St. Augustine with a D.P.T. (manual therapy tract) in 2006.

Steven became a Certified Integrative Manual Therapist through Great Lakes Seminars in 2009. During this process, he developed an appreciation and passion for treating cervical-thoracic dysfunctions. Steven has had a range of field and clinical experience, specializing in orthopedic injuries and post surgical conditions. He treats all regions of the body in his practice and emphasizes the principles of restoring and re-educating normal myofascial and musculoskeletal balance. He currently works at the Progressive Physical Therapy and Wellness Center Green Valley, AZ, of which he is part owner.
