Shockwave Therapy for Hip, Groin & Knee Conditions

Using shockwave to treat common conditions of the hip, groin and knee

Course Details

As hip and knee pathologies affect many individuals, the aim of this one day comprehensive course is integrating shockwave therapy into treatment and to provide a definitive reference for musculoskeletal clinicians who are involved in the management of patients with hip and knee pain.

Explore new avenues of treatment in this advanced practical workshop in management of hip and knee pain.

As specialists in rehabilitation, find out how to instigate a treatment plan to improve movement or reduce pain in patients with hip and knee pain. We will consider which clinical conditions are known to be most responsive whilst also considering those which are currently being investigated. The practical sessions will focus on tailored application of shockwave therapy for pain relief, tissue regeneration, calcification, bone & tendon pathologies.

Some key pathologies covered on the practical section include:

  • Hip and knee osteoarthritis
  • Management of lateral hip pain and adductor related groin pain
  • Application of shockwave in posterior hip pain including proximal hamstring tendinopathy.
  • Bone stress injuries (osteitis pubis)
  • Knee tendinopathies (patellar and quads)

Practical experience will be gained in the use and application of both radial and focused shockwave, as well as EMTT in hip and knee pathologies.
