Earlier this month we welcomed the worldwide respected clinician, researcher and educator Dr. Alison Grimaldi. SmartEducation hosted a course (both in Ghent and in Leuven) with her on “Lateral Hip & Buttock Pain“. For those who couldn’t attend this course, Alison took some time for an exciting and interesting podcast episode! We’re happy to share this with you.
Dr. Alison Grimaldi, works as a physiotherapist in her private clinic in Brisbane. She also teaches different courses worldwide and works as a “senior adjunct research fellow” at the University of Queensland (Australia). One of her recent publications is the LEAP trial, an interesting multicenter randomized control trial investigating different treatment modalities for gluteal tendinopathy.
In this podcast episode , Alison discusses the most important characteristics and results of this fascinating randomized clinical trial. Spoiler alert… :
Physiotherapy plays a major role in a favorable evolution for these patients!
Furthermore, she also reveals some useful tips and tricks for your clincial practice !
- Why first get started with motor control and muscle recruitment before starting to do strength training?
- What are “troubleshooting guidelines” or “flare-up guidelines” and how do I use these to optimize the progression of my treatment?
- What intensity or volume should my patient practice and how do I measure this?
- What is the “Three quarter to prone position”?
You will discover the answers on these questions on our podcast! Be sure to take the time to read and learn more about the LEAP trial!
Last but not least: Dr. Alison Grimaldi promised us to try to bring another visit to Belgium next year. Keep an eye on the educational program for 2020 on the Smarteducation website if you would like to have the pleasure to attend to one of her courses!
