WHAT'S INCLUDED ? 2 Nights at Bahia Hotel CABOCourse, Handouts, catered meals, networking experience (appetizers and drinks).

Course Objectives : 

Upon completion of this course the participant should be able to:

  1. Discuss the multiple factors proposed to contribute to pre-arthritic hip disease, including structural and neuromuscular impairments, activity level and type, and abnormal movement patterns.
  2. Describe the bony abnormalities associated with femoroacetabular impingement and structural instability.
  3. Describe the importance of active performance of precise joint motion.
  4. Understand the concepts underlying movement system diagnoses of the hip.
  5. Discuss how impairments in muscle length, strength, stiffness, and neuromuscular activation contribute to movement system diagnosis.
  6. Develop a corrective exercise program, and provide instruction in correcting the performance of daily activities for a given movement system diagnosis. 
  7. Understand the potential implications of abnormal movement patterns on short- and long-term outcomes following surgical intervention. 
  8. Develop a post-operative exercise program that incorporates principles of biological healing, muscle strengthening, and movement system factors to optimize patient function through the time of return to play.
  9. Discuss the available evidence for return to play success and return to play criteria for individuals with pre-arthritic hip disease.

About the Instructors

Marcie Harris-Hayes, PT, DPT, MSCI is an Associate Professor of Physical Therapy and Orthopaedic Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine. Dr. Harris-Hayes received her Master of Science in Physical Therapy from Northwestern University, her clinical Doctorate in Physical Therapy and Master’s of Science in Clinical Investigation from Washington University. Dr. Harris-Hayes completed her post-doctoral experience at Washington University as a scholar in the Comprehensive Opportunities in Rehabilitation Research Training program (CORRT) an NIH funded program to train clinical researchers in a multidisciplinary environment. She is currently funded by a K23 from NICHD-NCMRR to investigate rehabilitation factors in hip disorders including femoroacetabular impingement, acetabular labral tears and pre-arthritic disease.


Stephanie Di Stasi, PT, PhD, OCS, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopaedics and a Research Scientist for The Ohio State University (OSU) Wexner Medical Center Sports Medicine Research Institute. She earned her Master of Science in Physical Therapy from Springfield College and maintains part-time clinical work treating sports and orthopaedic populations. Dr. Di Stasi received her PhD in Biomechanics and Movement Science from the University of Delaware in 2011 and completed post-doctoral work in Sports Medicine at The Ohio State University. Dr. Di Stasi’s current research focuses on the mechanisms of disability and joint disease in active individuals following lower extremity injury and surgery in order to inform targeted treatment strategies. Her work on outcomes following hip arthroscopy has been funded by the Sports Physical Therapy Section of the APTA, the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, and OSU’s Center for Clinical and Translational Science.
