Could weak hips be causing your pain? When it comes to running efficiently & exercising injury free, it's all in the hips! There is plenty of research to back up the contention that weak hips can lead to injuries. For instance, one study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy found that when the hip over-rotated and collapsed inwards during the gait cycle, illiotibial band syndrome often resulted. Another study in the Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine discovered an association between overuse injuries in the lower extremities and poor strength in the muscles around the hip region, including the hip abductor, adductor and flexor.
Join us Saturday, February 18th at 9:00 am for a Hip Strengthening & Flexibility Clinic hosted by the Physical Therapist team of Advanced Wellness Centre. The clinic is free to attend and will be hosted at both our store locations (Short Pump & Westhampton). Choose the location most convenient for you when signing up!
Everyone who comes through the door will have a full Lower Extremity strength assessment with hands on muscle testing. They will then be paired off with one a trainer or PT from Advanced Wellness Centre to go over the first steps of making sure their LE strength deficits are addressed.
