Yousef Ghandour, PT, MOMT, FAAOMPT is a clinician and educator and has been practicing as a Physical Therapist for over 30 years. Mr. Ghandour graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Therapy from California State University at Long Beach, and earned his Masters of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (MOMT) from the Ola Grimsby Institute in San Diego, CA in 1991. He completed an additional
two year Part II residency program and became a fellow in American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists (AAOMPT). Yousef is passionate about Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy and enjoys sharing his knowledge with his colleagues. He is a member of several physical therapy organizations including the American Physical Therapy
Association, the California Physical Therapy Association, and the Orthopedic Section of the APTA. He has taught in the Residency Programs with the Ola Grimsby Institute and numerous seminars in subjects in sports medicine and orthopedic manual physical therapy, including soft tissue mobilization and dynamic lumbar stabilization.
This 8 hour dynamic course is packed with clinical pearls and practical applications. This course reviews anatomy, biomechanics, neurology, exercise physiology and integrates science fundamentals and evidence-based knowledge into practical outcomes. The presentation will include a discussion and demonstration of a progressive approach to evaluating and training the hip joint, starting with a comprehensive assessment of the hip joint, lumbar spine, hip muscles and rotator group recruitment, and culminating in optimizing stability during function and return to sport. Specific strategies to optimize movement and muscle recruitment using muscle dynamics and exercise principles will be discussed.
Mr. Ghandour will utilize manual and tactile techniques, introduce pulley concepts for recruitment, and demonstrate home exercise strategies designed to maintain the gains made
in the clinic. The participants will be able to take the knowledge learned in this condensed one day course and apply it immediately to their patients and clients.
After successful completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
Describe the anatomy of the hip joint
Describe the muscles of the hip joint and lumbar spine
Describe the biomechanics of the hip joint
Describe components of lumbar instability and hip deficiency
Perform dynamic soft tissue mobilization of the lumbar spine / hip
Perform a limited functional screening of lumbar spine and hip joint
Perform treatment progression from NWB to functional stability
Apply joint mobilization techniques
Select and perform appropriate therapeutic exercises and progressions
