3M: Differential Diagnosis for Mechanical Hip, Low Back and Pelvic Girdle Pain


Course Description:

Sometimes going back to the basics is what it takes to really grow your practice! This course is designed to review the basics of building your pelvic health practice. Whether you are an internal or externally-based pelvic health practitioner, the basic tools of assessment, screening for mechanical pain, and utilizing your patient resources fully will be reviewed and expanded upon in this course.  These are often the key building blocks that are missing in practice that can stop practitioners from getting to the next level.

 

Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, the participant will understand:

  1. How to demonstrate to your colleagues/referral sources that pelvic health is the missing link to every orthopaedic practice
  2. How to measure your worth and talk up your value with your clinic owner
  3. How to get buy-in from other physiotherapists and health care providers
  4. How to generate better referral sources and attract new patients
  5. Killer strategies to deliver value to potential new referral sources and patients
  6. How to rule in/rule out mechanical hip and low back pain
  7. How to use the resource packages that you have been given in Levels 1-3 optimally in your practice

I found the 3M course quite helpful from a review standpoint for the mechanical assessment but more importantly, I feel better able to discern LBP or hip pain from a true PF dysfunction. The module on SIJ “dysfunction” was also quite helpful as this is something that I have struggled with – clients with positive SIJ pain provocation tests but then what? Another thing I found especially helpful was how it was pointed out that we need to be careful not to pathologize the PF. I think this is something I would have tended to do in my pain clients (either pelvic pain or hip or LBP), however now that I have this knowledge I need to step back and approach the PF like any other muscle group that might be a contributing factor to LBP or hip pain. I think that is the most important thing I took from that course and I am trying to keep it in mind with all of my clients – not just the pelvic clients. I have been making a concerted effort in the past year to improve clients’ self-efficacy and I believe this plays into that. – Nicole P
