This course will review the functional anatomy of the hip joint and the relationship between the acetabulum and proximal femur. Examples of movement system diagnoses of the hip joint will be introduced. The critical elements of a movement system diagnosis will be reviewed, and key components of exercise and functional training interventions will be provided.

At the conclusion of these courses, participants will be able to:
  • Recall key anatomic features of the pelvis and the variations between male and female pelvic structure.
  • Describe normal morphological variations of the proximal femur and acetabulum.
  • Associate femur on pelvis and pelvis on femur osteokinematics and relate these to a movement system diagnosis.
  • Describe normal joint arthrokinematics and how deviation from normal relates to a movement system diagnosis.
  • Recall the various functions of muscles around the hip joint and relate muscle performance and muscle recruitment strategies to a movement system diagnosis.
  • Describe a movement system examination/evaluation process of the hip.
  • Discuss selected biomedical diagnoses and relate to movement system diagnoses.
  • Identify a movement system diagnosis of the hip from examination/evaluation results.
  • Develop a plan of care for a movement system diagnosis of the hip from the examination/evaluation results.

Carrie Hall founded Movement Systems Physical Therapy in 1995. Her mission/vision was to build a clinical practice where she could implement her philosophical approach toward diagnosis and treatment of movement system impairment (MSI) syndromes. Hall’s background in the MSI approach stemmed from her longtime mentor, Shirley Sahrmann, PT, Phd, FAPTA, who she met while working at Barnes Hospital and Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) in 1983. In addition to her clinical practice and continuing education teaching, Hall has served on several
faculties including WUSTL, Northwestern University in Chicago, and University of Washington in
Seattle. Her role as university instructor motivated her to take on lead authorship of the text “Therapeutic Exercise: Moving Toward Function,” now in its 4th edition. She recently completed two monographs for the Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy on-line continuing education on “A Movement System Approach to the Lower Quarter.”
Hall serves as a Washington Delegate to the APTA House of Delegates, on the Great West Region Washington Advisory Board for the Arthritis Foundation, and on the Seattle Pediatric/Adolescent Sports Medicine Interest Group/Hip Task Force.
