The hip is a complex major weight bearing joint and takes part in many movements. The lack of mobility in that area may affect the knees, back, restrict movement, and general performance as much of the force your body generates comes from the hips. In part 2, we explore some of the more complex mobility drills focusing on flexion, extension, external & internal rotation and abduction.
Sedentary lifestyle puts our bodies in to a passive flexed position which over time may create various imbalances in other areas of the body. Many movements /sports disciplines don’t explore various ranges of motion of that joint (focusing just on one or two). Therefore it is important for us to balance it with all the ranges and directions our hip can move.
