Dr Alison Grimaldi continues to teach globally, bringing better hip treatment to those with hip pain everywhere
One of our Co-founders, Dr. Alison Grimaldi, has had a very busy year teaching other hip professionals. With Covid still impacting travel, Alison’s workshops were limited for most of the year, but she managed to bring together health professionals from all over Australia for her Brisbane workshops in July. Alison has also provided short workshops in conferences at the Gold Coast and Sydney, online workshops for health professionals from all over the world and online conference presentations or hosted workshops for groups in Spain, Brazil, Ireland, and New Zealand.
Alison continues to run her popular Hip Academy, a community of over 200 health professionals from all over the globe who have a special passion in learning more and helping more people with their hip pain.
Right now, Alison has set out on another adventure, and is headed to London, where she will be holding some more practical workshops for other physiotherapists. We wish Alison all the best with her workshops, and safe travels!
In 2023, she already has teaching tours planned for Canada and the USA, and the UK and Europe, as well as local and online workshops booked. She is keynoting as conferences in Canada & Sweden. It will certainly be a busy year but Alison’s passion for furthering knowledge about hip pain only continues to grow.

Top Hip Tips for this Holiday Season!
Tip 1: Reduce Pain Whilst Standing
Try and reduce sway posture this holiday season (standing posture where people tend to lock their knees in and throw their hips too far forward). Instead, relieve pressure on your hips (and back) by bringing your weight back to be roughly two thirds on your heels and growing gently tall.
Tip 2: Reduce Pain Whilst Sitting
These holidays you might find yourself driving to visit family or friends, or just to take a break, attending plays, social occasions, meals and drinks out, but how can you make sitting a more pleasant experience these holidays? A supportive cushion might be the answer for you!
Tip 3: Reduce Pain Whilst Sleeping
As we all know, the holiday period can be a stressful and exhausting time for many of us, so getting enough sleep is imperative. However, sleeping may be where your hip and pelvic pain can bother you most. Knowing the appropriate strategies to sleep better and reduce hip pain can be vital this holiday season!
