Posterior And Lateral Hip Mobilizations With Band And Movement

Demonstrated are two banded hip mobility drills with a standing variation and half kneeling variation. With these motions youโ€™re mobilizing the pelvis on the femur (hip bone). The band is set up to provide a posterolateral (diagonal) mobilization to the hip. Mechanically we are likely not moving/shifting the hip bone significantly, but we are providing a novel stimulus to the body that helps to provide feedback and furthermore improve mobilityโ€ผ๏ธ I recommend performing both movements as the first motion provides a nice stretch to the posterior hip musculature and is similar to a squat movement. The second motion includes hip flexor mobility and removes the ankle out of the equation so that you can focus on the hip joint. If youโ€™re feeling a pinch in your groin, perform and maintain a posterior pelvic tilt and try again. If it still bothers you, contact us if youโ€™re in LA/California or skilled a healthcare provider in person to assess you. This absolutely should be pain-free. There are a lot of factors that could contribute to limited squat mobility. If you try this video and it doesnโ€™t help, we would suggest checking your ankle mobility and searching our Exercise Library looking under the ankle section!
