This 1-hour livestream workshop explores common hip presentations in a dance physios’ clinic, including front hip pain, clicking hips, growing pains for the young dancers, subluxations and what to do about these conditions. It will review hip anatomy for the adult dancer and the growing young dancer and examine realistic hip mobility ranges and exercises to help with improving mobility safely, followed by practical tips and explanations for the common injuries seen in dancers, teaching you key assessments that you can perform in the studio, and cueing/ training techniques to reduce pain in the class.
