Hip Muscle Function in Health, Injury and Exercise Webinar
1 August, 2018

Adam SemciwSCA is pleased to present their next webinar for 2018 titled,
Hip Muscle Function in Health, Injury and Exercise - not just the size that counts, but also how you use it, presented by Dr Adam Semciw.

Adam graduated as a physiotherapist from The University of Sydney in 2001, and completed his PhD at La Trobe University in 2013. In 2015, Adam joined the University of Queensland as a Research Fellow; a conjoint position with Queensland Health. In 2017, he completed a Graduate Certificate in Epidemiology, from the University of Queensland. Adam's research interests include hip and lower limb muscle function in health and disease.

Hip muscle dysfunction is thought to contribute to a range of hip and lower limb conditions. However, until recently, knowledge of how these muscles function in health and pathology has been limited.

The purpose of this webinar will be to:

  1. describe the functional anatomy of the hip abductor muscles gluteus medius and gluteus minimus;
  2. describe the function of these muscles in healthy and pathological conditions, and
  3. describe how to target these muscles with rehabilitation exercises.

By the end of this webinar, clinicians should feel confident in recognising gluteal muscle dysfunction, and targeting them with a range of rehabilitation options.
