5 Ways to Improve Hip Mobility Without Stretching

Lots of clinicians and patients work on stretching their hamstrings, hip flexors and gluts. Commonly, there is a lack of hip mobility passively and ability to accept load in weight bearing.

Stretching seems to work better dynamically, but if there is a strong perception of stretch or discomfort, often the nervous system won't grant access to the mobility due to perceived threat. The above video goes over some of my favorite ways you can show patients to improve hip mobility without stretching.
  • Sidegliding in standing
  • agonist reversals
  • single leg bridge
  • EDGE Mobility Band mobilizations
  • sideplank/superclams
