This helps to maintain the benefits gained from treatment and manual therapy when working with me in the clinic. Ideally, this would be done about once an hour for a single set of 10-20 reps but it can be hard to have a student-athlete comply with this and fit it into their busy schedules. I also have some of them do this before practice and lifting weights for temporary mobility gains.
This is done by the athlete applying an active-assisted hip internal movement while simultaneously providing slight distraction/traction. Check it out!
In other news, I found an old but good video about pain by Lorimer Moseley on "Why Things Hurt". It is actually a pretty funny video and I am sad that I have only just now found this video. For some of you this will be old but for some of you it may be new. This guy's book is on my current to-read list.
Enjoy and Happy Monday!
