Optimising Dynamic Function of the Lumbo-Pelvic Region & the Older Hip

Australian Catholic University (North Sydney Campus) $650 early bird, $700 after

Trish Wisbey-Roth is known for her expertise in the management and treatment of musculo-skeletal problems with emphasis on spinal stabilisation (cervical and low-back) and functional progression of core stability. A physiotherapist with over 20 years experience, Trish has completed both a Sports Physiotherapy Masters at the AIS Canberra and Post Graduate Manipulative therapy training in the Kaltenbourne/Evyenth system. She became a Titled Sports Physiotherapist in 1999 and has been an Olympic Physiotherapist since 1996.

This 2-day course will be held at the Australian Catholic University (North Sydney campus), 8-10 Berry Street North Sydney.

This course is approved for 16hrs of CPD.

Early bird code: EARLYBIRDTRISH


This course provides a comprehensive muscular assessment and exercise rehab program for the lumbo-pelvic region and a wide variety of age-related hip conditions that present for assessment.

This two-day course is very practical where participants are exposed to a wide variety of functional exercises and theory/research behind how to assess and progress a lumbo/pelvic functional program and rehab strategies for the older hip patients.

A comprehensive exercise protocol specific to age related Hip dysfunction will be explained and demonstrated with take home exercise examples for clinical use.

The muscle assessment and exercise program design can be progressed from very specific retraining of spinal, pelvic and hip muscular stability through to dynamic functional movement patterns required for work, ADL through to high level sport.

The two-day course includes:
– A detailed outline of the dynamic slings of the lumbo-pelvic and hip regions and how they relate to individual patient presentation
– A specific and graded assessment protocol for lumbo-pelvic and hip dysfunction
– Detailed practical strategies that can be incorporated into rehabilitation and maintenance training programs to optimise dynamic lumbo-pelvic hip control and proprioception
– Detailed exercise handouts included in the training manual that can be applied in the clinic immediately
– Assessment of dysfunctional local/global muscle recruitment patterns of the lumbar spine, hip and pelvis.
– A grading system to assess and progress a spinal/pelvic/hip functional control program from the acute stage of treatment, to return to normal function.
– Practical session, where participants are introduced to a wide variety of graded progressed functional exercises for the lumbar, pelvic and hip regions using proprioceptive cues and gymnastic balls. The important aim of this practical course is recognising the correct level of exercise difficulty for the appropriate grade of dynamic function exhibited and how to progress.
– Provides a treatment specific and exercises/ education strategies tailored for the older hip and presenting functional issues

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn assessment of dysfunctional local/global muscle recruitment patterns of the lumbar spine,
    pelvis and hips.
  • Incorporate a grading system to assess and progress a lumbo-pelvic functional program from the
    acute stage of treatment, to return to normal function.
  • Practice a wide variety of graded and progressed functional exercises using proprioceptive cues and
    recognising the correct level of exercise difficulty and how to progress.
  • Design effective manual therapy, exercise and education intervention for the older hip.
  • Design a dysfunction specific exercise program to optimise function in the older hip.

This 2-day course will be held at School of Physiotherapy – ACU North Sydney (8-10 Berry Street). Please note this is just up from the main campus on Berry St.

There will be street parking available within 5 minutes walk of the venue in North Sydney where ACU’s main campus is located (Berry St North Sydney) which is not timed/metered over the weekend (however please check the signs thoroughly). The venue is also only a 5-10 minute walk from North Sydney Train Station.

The course will run from 8.30-5pm on Saturday and 9am – 5pm on Sunday and catering will be provided for Morning Tea, Lunch and Afternoon Tea on both days. Please note any dietary requirements in the notes section when booking the course.
