Hip Mobility: Ground Floor Series

In this video, Dr. Nwachukwu focuses on the mobility of the hip using ground floor exercises.

Hip mobility is essential to the proper full functioning of the hip joint. Some of his favorite exercises and stretches include:

  • 90 / 90 Stretch
  • 90 | 90 Stretch (opposite side)
  • Windshield Wipers
  • 90 / 90 Transition
  • Pigeon Stretch
  • Kneeling Hip Flexor with Reach
  • Low Squat Shifts
  • Low Squat with Reach

Mobility training can improve the range of motion of our joints and muscles. It can assist in improving our posture. Mobility training can alleviate ‘everyday’ aches and pains as well as improve our body awareness. Think of mobility as the range of uninhibited motion around the joint. A good level of mobility allows a person to perform movements without restriction, while a person with good flexibility may not have the strength, coordination, or balance to execute the same movement.

The ground floor series of exercises can help patients alleviate the symptoms of the following hip conditions:

Hip Labrum Tear and

Femoroacetabular Impingement
