Foam Rolling Your Hips.

Foam Rolling. If you don’t have a foam roller, go get one right now and then come back and watch the video. A foam roller is one of simplest tools for doing your own soft tissue mobilization. There are varying degrees of firmness in the foam rollers that are available from soft to punish-yourself-firm. Pick the one that feels right for you, Goldilocks.

On to today’s body part for mobilization. Your hip lateral rotators and gluteus maximus.  You need the address the tissues of your hips on a regular basis. I see so many preganat women in my manual therapy practice woddle in like a duck complaining of scaitic pain and desk jockies wondering why their hips feel so stiff all the time. Your butt is not a weight baring surface. If it was, it would look like the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet. Gnarly, beef jerky, hard callased tissue. Go sit on a roller and unglue all that matted down muscle and tell me your hips and back don’t feel better and move better.
