Hip Pain

Running is pretty straight forward. I mean, it's mostly in the sagittal plane - so our mechanics should reflect that. . Check your gait and if this applies to you - give this one a shot before you take off for your next run. Three sets of a million.
Sometimes all you need to do is roll around on the floor and move with intent. Give this quick little movement challenge a try and let us know in the comments how it goes for you! As always; visit our website at www.minnesota-movement.com for all your chiropractic care needs!
The knee is the dumbest joint in the body. All it is truly designed to do is go forwards and backwards. When it is forced to go sideways or into rotation, it's usually not the knee's fault! Typically we can blame that on the hip/glute or the foot/ankle.
Whew! How's that for a title of the exercise?! There's a lot going on in this one and if you don't already have the Glute Lunge Press Up dialed in you MUST start with that before throwing any band or restriction at the other leg!

If you have pain in your hip or low back; these videos for mobility and strength are for you.

I'm a huge fan of external cues. I'm talking about using carrots and strings here! Guiding patients in the direction that they need to be. This application of RockTape is helping guide a more efficient knee pattern for stability.
This little tool from Trigger Point Therapy is AMAZING! Use it as a foam roller with the blocks or take it off and use it as a mobility stick! Best part is that all of the little rollers are removable so the whole stick is customizable!
