Regaining Flexion/IR of the Hip

 

 

Ever have a patient with problems going into a deep squat (or even normal squat for that matter)?  What about someone having hip impingement?  Or just groin pain when sitting to prolonged periods of time?  The list could go on and on.  Usually, a lot of these patients improve well with regular mobilizations of functional mobilizations on and around the hip.  However, I’ve noticed that sometimes, there are other patients that don’t respond as well.  They tend to be the same patients with limited internal rotation while in a flexed hip position.  After playing around with it and thinking about the mechanics, I’ve started using this mobilization in the clinic and it seems to work really well.  Take a look and tell me what you think…

 

Cheers!

  1. Sweet! I like that! Makes sense to me. I have a few patients right now that will benefit from it. Thanks for sharing. I’m going to call your mobilization the “Mattitude”!
