Treating patellofemoral dysfunction, particularly as it relates to running, is common in orthopedic and sports practice. For this program, an approach to assessment and treatment of patellofemoral dysfunction that is from the perspective of the hip and pelvis will be presented alongside an approach that focuses more distally, from the perspective of foot biomechanics.
Speakers: Drew T. Jenk, PT, DPT; Michael E. Kordecki, PT, DPT, SCS, ATC; Robert Mangine, PT, MEd, ATC; Tal S. David, MD
This course is designed to provide the attendees with an in-depth review of specialized patient populations. The speakers will examine the clinical presentation, surgical options, diagnosis specific rehabilitation, and keys to return to sport for each condition. Attendees will learn the importance of understanding the patient population being treated, as well as their clinical presentation. The attendee should leave this course with a greater sport specific consideration for the complicated athletic shoulder specific to posterior instability and nerve entrapment.
Time: 11:00 am–1:00 pm (See Program for Room)

This course will highlight the anatomy, pathomechanics, and surgical management of hip pathology in the athlete, specifically femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) impingement and sports hernia.
Time: 3:00 pm–5:00 pm (See Program for Room)
Speakers: Randall Lazicki, PT, DPT, SCS, CSCS, LAT, ATC; Mark F. Reinking, PT, PhD, SCS, ATC; Daniel Lorenz, PT, DPT, ATC, CSCS; Allen Hardin, PT, MS, CSCS, SCS, ATC, LAT; Gary Calabrese, PT
Muscle and tendon injures are extremely common and are unique in medicine in that they can be accurately diagnosed, in most cases, with clinical evidence alone. To this extent, clinicians have placed much emphasis on examination and diagnosis; however, the most effective rehabilitation strategies and progression to return an athlete to sport are often overlooked in many education sessions. The purpose of this session is to provide both scientific and clinical perspectives on the management of athletes’ muscle and tendon pathology. It will address the biology of injury and healing as well as update the participant on current soft tissue, strength and conditioning, and prevention theories, techniques, and applications to assist the clinician in safely and rapidly returning an athlete back to sport. Unique to this session will be a culminating panel discussion on rehabilitation techniques of muscle and tendon pathologies from various fields of sports physical therapy, including professional, collegiate, military, and outpatient practice settings.

Identifying the causes of intra-articular hip pain in the young active adult can be a challenge. Attention has focused on femoral and acetabular abnormalities and their surgical correction. Recent studies suggest a higher incidence of these structural problems in soccer, basketball, and football players. Although structural abnormalities may contribute to hip pain, microtrauma due to faulty movement or muscle recruitment patterns also play an important role. Rehabilitation targeted at reducing microtrauma to hip joint structures provides an alternative or adjunct to surgery.
This presentation will emphasize anatomical and biomechanical factors proposed to contribute to hip pain problems such as femoroacetabular impingement, structural instability, and acetabular labral tears. Part 1 will present current studies using imaging and clinical tests to describe the structural and muscular characteristics of the hip in people with hip pain. Additionally, clinical cases will demonstrate a systematic examination used to identify the hip as the source of symptoms and demonstrate the interaction of structural characteristics with other proposed contributing factors such as movement patterns during functional performance and athletic activity (type and intensity).

This session offers several interesting, complex, complicated, or difficult cases related to sports physical therapy. Details are provided regarding the diagnostic process, evaluation, intervention strategies, and outcomes. The presenter will highlight clinical decision making, critical thinking, and problem-solving strategies, and will present related evidence.
This presentation will emphasize anatomical and biomechanical factors proposed to contribute to hip pain problems such as femoroacetabular impingement, structural instability, and acetabular labral tears. Part 2, kinematic and kinetic research, will describe altered neuromuscular control in people with hip pain and demonstrate hip force changes that occur during different walking patterns and selected hip exercises. Treatment strategies including exercise and functional training to reduce forces on the hip joint will be presented. Case studies will demonstrate the development of diagnosis and treatment of hip pain based on clinical exam results.

The shoulder and hip joints are both important contributors to normal upper and lower body function. Anatomic and functional similarities exist; however, it is unclear whether a correlation exists between common shoulder and hip injuries. Pathomechanics, as well as surgical and conservative management strategies of the shoulder joint, have been studied extensively; however, the hip joint has only recently been the focus of such scrutiny. This session will examine the extent of the anatomical, biomechanical, and pathological relationships between the shoulder and hip joints. Furthermore, presenters will elucidate the strength of evidence supporting effective treatment strategies for each respective joint, as well as how these treatment approaches can be applied to both joints allowing for safe return to sport.
Speakers: Terry Malone, PT, EdD, ATC, FAPTA; George Davies, PT, DPT, SCS, FAPTA; Donald C. Fithian, MD
Although anterior cruciate ligament injury and patellofemoral pain are commonly encountered pathologies, the physical therapist also is challenged to address other medial and lateral compartment knee structures. Examples include pathology related to the medial collateral ligament, lateral collateral ligament, menisci, and the arcuate-popliteal complex. The purpose of this session is to provide a systematic approach for the examination of the knee as well as the use of imaging to enhance clinical decision-making. This session will conclude with an update regarding surgical procedures to address these various pathologies. Information presented will reflect evidence from the current scientific literature.
Speakers: Carol M. Ferkovic, PT, DPT; Mitchell J. Rauh, PT, PhD, MPH, FACSM; Mark V. Paterno, PT, PhD, MBA, SCS, ATC; Ellen Shanley, PT, PhD, OCS
Female sports participation has continued to increase since the implementation of Title IX in 1972. With increased opportunities for young girls to participate in sports, there is potential for increased injury rates among this population. Adolescent female athletes are especially at risk. Management of these issues can be challenging for the clinician as it requires an understanding of the neuromuscular, musculoskeletal, and biomechanical development of the young female athlete. This 2-hour session will provide an overview of common injuries in adolescent female athletes and address issues unique to this population, such as the female athlete triad, hip and trunk neuromuscular training, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury prevention, and shoulder and elbow injuries.
Speakers: Christopher M. Powers, PT, PhD, FAPTA; Barton Bishop, PT, DPT, SCS
Anterior cruciate ligament injury, patellofemoral pain, and iliotibial band syndrome are commonly encountered knee pathologies. Although the management of each may differ, they do have a commonality in that faulty hip and trunk mechanics may contribute to pathology. The purpose of this session is to first, summarize the latest evidence regarding the influence of altered hip and trunk function on knee pathology from a biomechanical perspective; and second, to address functional screens to identify faulty trunk and lower-extremity movement patterns that may contribute to knee pathology. The session will conclude with a description of intervention strategies to target and improve aberrant movements.
