Description

The purpose of this course is to provide participants with the knowledge to differentiate lumbar vs SIJ vs hip dysfunction, while utilizing evidence-based practices during an orthopedic manual therapy examination to improve musculoskeletal diagnosis and patient outcomes. The course is split into 5 sections: (1) Recognizing Systemic and Visceral symptoms (Non-musculoskeletal indicators) learned from Subjective/History, (2) Pain Sources that Refer to Low back, SIJ and Hips, (3) Performing and Interpreting the Lumbopelvic Hip Orthopedic Examination, (4) Using Evidence-based Screening and Special Testing to help Rule In/ Rule Out lumbar, SIJ and Hip as origin of pain, and (5) Putting it all together with understanding examination results and clinical pearls.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Clearly state 3 challenges of differential diagnosis of this body area due to the overlapping of signs and symptoms
2. Clearly state 3 systemic signs and symptoms, and be aware of visceral referral that can mimic musculoskeletal LBP, SIJ, and hip pain
3. Clearly describe 3 ways how muscle testing and neurological screening during the lumbopelvic hip exam can help with differential diagnosis
4. Clearly describe 3 spinal nerve vs peripheral nerve dysfunction through differential muscle testing
5. Clearly describe 3 appropriate screening and special tests that can be used for the lumbar spine, hip and SIJ
6. Clearly describe 3 ways that the results of lumbopelvic exam and clinical testing are used to help rule out/rule in lumbar, SIJ or hip dysfunction
