16-17/10/21 Hip 'Hope' Course


Location (TBA- Nicosia)

Instructor: Liran Lifshitz MSc



This workshop is suitable for orthopaedic physiotherapists who operate in hospitals, clinics, or sports team’s settings that provide Hip and Groin-related treatment solutions to professional and amateur athletes, as well as related general outpatient services.

It focuses on the hip joint, the pelvis, and the groin, which is typically a key area of challenge both in terms of diagnosis and subsequent treatments.
This workshop is based on clinical and academic knowledge acquired over the last 25 years and incorporates up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of current studies.

At the same time, the workshop is largely practical, allowing attendees to experience clinical testing, manual treatments, taping, and a vast number of exercises for this area.

In this course, participants will be exposed to the latest research and professional literature and will receive a great number of practical tools for diagnosing and treating hip and groin pain.
