Hip Mobility: Exercises Using a Foam Roller

In this video, Dr. Nwachukwu focuses on the mobility of the hip using a foam roller.

Hip mobility is essential to the proper full functioning of the hip joint.

Some of his favorite exercises and stretches include:

  • Quadriceps
  • TFL (Tensor Fascite Latae)
  • Adductor
  • Piriformis/Glute
  • Hamstring
  • Calf

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.

Dr. Nwachukwu recommends foam roller exercises for patients with the following hip conditions:

Hip Labrum Tear and

Femoroacetabular Impingement
