Hip injuries in athletes, no matter the age can be challenging. We see a lot of hip injuries that have been treated as “hip flexor” strains multiple times. The injury “heals” and the athlete goes back to activity and injures it again maybe it feels the same but deeper with clicking, groin pain and loss of athleticism. If the injury is truly a “hip flexor” strain it will get better with conservative care and the athlete will go back to sports without issues.
In this video Travis is using a technique called Mobilization With Movement (MWM) on the iliacus to increase #Mobility, decrease pain, decrease scar tissue, swelling and improve the mechanics and function of the hip.
This is one of the manual therapy techniques we use to improve hip function and decrease hip impingement at Sterling Physical Therapy.
