Current management of Gluteal Pathology: A common cause of Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS)
A significant rise in patients presenting to general practice with lateral hip pain has recently been reported, with 10-25% of the general community now affected by Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS). At present, there exists a poor understanding of the varied pathologies that contribute to this condition, and recent research and improved imaging methods suggests that gluteal pathology is a very common cause of GTPS. This presentation is designed to provide an overview of GTPS with particular reference to gluteal pathology. It will cover its prevalence, pertinent anatomy and pathophysiology relevant to the development of GTPS, typical patient presentation and common tests employed to evaluate severity, and current conservative (including exercise) and surgical management strategies employed to deal with this patient cohort. Finally, it will cover three individual case studies of patients that were referred to our rehabilitation facility, all at different stages along the GTPS pathology continuum, outlining individual patient presentation and evaluation, treatment and outcome.
The recording is of a webinar presented by ESSA on 16 September 2014.
