Ground Based Hip Mobility Drill

In this video you will see osteopath Heath Williams working on opening up his hips in flexion, abduction, external rotation and internal rotation.  This is a great way to safely mobilise into the hips in a controlled manner.  You can start with your knees closer (less abduction and external rotation) and then rock back and forth slowly.  As you rock forward you can also lift the leg off the ground to move the hip through internal rotation. As you will notice in this video of myself, the right hip doesn’t like to go through so much internal rotation which is demonstrating a restriction through this movement.  If you feel pain or a marked difference, be sure to pop in and see your osteopath so that they can assess to determine if it is a joint or soft tissue restriction.
