Lecture Topic:  Clinical implications and applications of the research of two common insertional tendinopathies: gluteal and lateral elbow


Presenter Professor Bill Vicenzino, APAM, University of Queensland

Chair in Sports Physiotherapy

Director Sports Injury Rehabilitation and Prevention for Health (SIRPH) research unit

Director Master of Physiotherapy (Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy)

Director Master of Physiotherapy (Sports Physiotherapy)

NHMRC CRE in Translation of Research into Improved Outcomes in Musculoskeletal Pain and Health


Professor Vicenzino will be speaking on clinical implications and applications of the research into two common insertional tendinopathies: gluteal and lateral elbow. 

He will present new research findings based on a randomised clinical trial of more than 200 patients with gluteal tendinopathy. It is a pragmatic physio program that delivers great outcomes and you will leave the night with evidence-based takeaways which can be applied in your clinics the next day.


He will also present the tennis elbow clinical trial that was rated in the top 15 (/29,000) PEDro-indexed ground-breaking trials that mark important milestones in the evolution of physiotherapy treatment and changed the way people are treated. The trials compared a physiotherapy-delivered manual therapy, education and exercise programs with a steroid injection and ‘wait and see’ program.


The presentation will be followed with a question and answer session, giving physiotherapists an opportunity to learn more about the research and how it can translate into clinical practice and provide plenty of opportunity throughout the evening for networking over dinner and drinks.

Put together a table of 10 or come independently!
