Webinar: Coccydynia & Anterior Knee Pain - Aetiology and Management

If you want to get a kick out of your CPD, join us on this this evening course combining the uncommon condition coccydynia and anterior knee pain. Mr John Hardy, Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon, will join us online to talk about the aetiologies of these conditions, how you can help your patients manage them and when to refer.


Coccydynia is an unusual condition which accounts for less than 5% of all presentations to hospital for lower back pain and is more common in women and obese patients. Mr Hardy will discuss the red flags when patients present with symptoms such as pain and tenderness in the area just above the buttocks, and how to conservatively manage the pain with exercises and other techniques. If all other treatments have failed, surgery may be the only solution and he will be advising when this is required. We will also be reviewing the theoretical and methodological findings about the condition.


We will also be examining the various pathologies of anterior knee pain. Whether it’s runner’s knee or patella maltracking, there can be many causes for anterior knee pain due to plica impingement. Repetitive strain on runners, jumpers, skiers, cyclists or football players often may cause this problem, but it can be easily treated by healthcare practitioners when caught early. We will be detailing evidenced-based interventions and literature to help you care for your patients before surgery becomes necessary. However, Mr Hardy will also explore when a referral is essential, having performed hundreds of treatments to cure this condition.
