Anterior hip and groin pain is common in athletes, runners and sports that involve change of direction sportspeople. Improving neuromuscular control around the hip is important in the early stages of treatment of anterior hip pain & pathology, and maintaining control as strength and painfree function increases to achieve a return to high levels of function and sport.
Patients may have a range of pathology including acetabular labral tears, ilipsoas bursitis, or tendinopathies of the anterior or antero-lateral hip muscles (sartorius, iliacus, rectus femoris or TFL). In this video series with Hailey Welch, you will discover how to assess and retrain hip control and strength in your runners and athletes with hip pain & pathology.
Yoga or Pilates is also commonly performed due to patient perception that they should be working on their “core” or gaining more flexibility. While there may be some truth to this there are a number of exercises that should be absolutely avoided or modified for particular dysfunctions. You will explore exactly which yoga and pilates exercises to avoid, and how to modify exercises when treating anterior hip pain.
