Course Description

CEU Course Description

Many patients with hip Osteoarthritis (OA) have motion pain resulting from joint contracture. Motion pain seems to improve with exercise therapy, whereas pain during walking caused by subchondral bone exposure on the joint surface may need surgery. The goal of this CEU course is to investigate the effectiveness of Pericapsular Soft Tissue and Realignment (PSTR) exercise for patients with OA of the hip, including those with Harris Hip Scores (HHS) below 60 points.

 

CEU Course Objectives

1.  Explain the main cause of joint contracture.

2.  Identify the type of pain that seems to improve with exercise therapy.

3.  Summarize how partial or total loss of cartilage is related to hip pain.
