Anterior Hip Pain Exercises

What contributes to overload of the anterior hip? How can you incorporate manual therapy, motor control, postural correction and strengthening to address the factors overloading the anterior hip?

Nichole Hamilton presents this video which will help you identify which tissues need to be released, when motor control patterns need to be retrained, the best way to train the deep stabilisers, and how to make your hip rehabilitation functional.

You will learn how to keep the femoral head centred in the acetabulum during movement, how and when to progress hip strengthening, ways of further challenging your patients hip control, and how to tie it all together.

Part 1 covers a review of the biomechanics of the overload, daily habits and postures, soft tissue release and manual therapy, activation of the core and deep stabilisers.

Part 2 further explores learning to centre the femoral head, common mistakes of core stability training, centring the femoral head in the acetabulum during movement, adding proprioceptive challenges and single leg loading.

Part 3 incorporates eccentric psoas control, biomechanical ideas for optimal walking and running, and putting it all together.
