Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is not a new idea but hip arthroscopy has allowed identification and surgical treatment of a greater number of patients. This increase is also partly the result of the confusion use of terminology which has resulted in ‘morphology’ being mistaken for ‘pathology’. This article clearly describes the difference between these two states, with a clear definition for the pathological state of FAI syndrome (FAIS), as well as the battery of tests needed to exclude or include a diagnosis of FAIS. This allows you to be confident about deciding whether FAIS is the cause of your patient’s hip/groin pain or not, enabling them to potentially avoid unnecessary and invasive surgery. Additionally, the article explains how the cam morphology is thought to occur, allowing you to advise children and adolescents on their activity levels during the crucial ‘growth spurt’ stage and so reduce the risk of cam development.

When treating patients, we all want to create the ideal outcome opportunities for them, but how often is the ideal outcome achieved? Are there times when, in spite of both you and the patient doing their best, progress stalls? It is important to remember that fascial and musculoskeletal health can be affected by many factors. Treatment for some of these aspects might need referral to an appropriately trained medical specialist, whereas others are more under our own control. This article provides much food for thought about how to create the best environment for you and your patient so that the best treatment outcomes are attained. This article has been extracted from the author’s book Mobilizing the Myofascial System: A clinical guide to assessment and treatment of myofascial dysfunctions.

The benefits of physical activity and maintaining a sensible weight for helping to prevent and reverse many health conditions are becoming increasingly better known and appreciated. But how do you broach the topic with a patient who doesn’t realise or perhaps doesn’t want to know that their lifestyle is damaging their health? How do you encourage lasting behavioural change? Physical and manual therapists are uniquely placed to begin these conversations and this article, in conjunction with the resources at Moving Medicine and Co-Kinetic, provides the tools and confidence to go about it in the most effective way in however much or little time you have available. In addition to doing the best for your patients, it might also enable you to broaden the services you offer and your client base.
