Femoroacetabular impingement: What is it, does it matter and what can we do to manage it?
DVD Playback, Warrnambool
Hip pain is common in active young and middle aged people. Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a leading cause of sport-related hip and groin pain, and increases the risk for end-stage hip osteoarthritis (OA). At present, some controversy exists around the most appropriate assessment and management of FAI. This presentation will discuss FAI, whether it matters and what evidence exists on how it should be managed.

Vision is more than reading letters on a chart, it involves where things are, what they are and what they mean. Before we can interpret what we see, we must point and focus our eyes in space - we must be cameramen before we can be a viewer.
In Acquired Brain Injury, a wide range of cortical and subcortical injuries occur to the visual system. Treating the cameraman rather than the cameras allows an ABI client to spend less attentional energy on maintaining their environment, allowing more attention for experiencing and interpreting their world. Optimisation of vision is therefore a critical aspect of rehabilitation for many acquired brain injuries including TBI, stroke and concussion.
