According to Wikipedia, Grand Rounds have historically been a methodology of medical education consisting of presenting the medical problems and treatment of a particular patient to an audience consisting of doctors, pharmacists, residents, and medical students.

The Adjunct Education Committee of the National Orthopaedic Division is initiating Orthopaedic Physiotherapy Grand Rounds.

Orthopaedic Physiotherapy Grand Rounds 8 was presented online on  April 5 and this is the recording from that presentation.

The case is a 44-year-old passionate golfer with persistent low back and buttock pain who recently underwent a left hip Femoral Acetabular impingement (FAI) and labral tear repair surgery. The patient consulted physiotherapy services one year after his initial injury, with the goals of improving his strength and decreasing his low back pain. Upon initial assessment, discogenic low back pain and poor mobility/lumbopelvic-hip motor control was suspected, with treatment focusing on manual therapy and a clinical pilates reformer program.

The panelists draw upon concepts such as the McKenzie Method, to propose suggestions for a gradual return-to-sport program following his hip arthroscopy. 

How do we manage the patient’s goals and expectations as he returns to the links?
