Hip Rotation And Hip Pressing

Athletes with a history of chronic or recurrent lower back pain often show less overall hip rotation as well as asymmetry, that is, a lack of equivalence of degrees of movement of right hip rotation versus left hip rotation, when compared to those without a history of lower back pain. The literature suggest 40 degrees of internal rotation and 45 degrees of external rotation normal for the right and left hip.

Hip Rotation

The conundrum for the athlete is that limited hip rotation range of motion and lack of symmetry may be one of the factors contributing to development or persistence of lower back pain in sports that require high degrees of change of direction movements. For an athlete who has had issues when the low back pain subsides hip strength must be addressed. Loss of range of motion is associated with a concomitant loss of strength and therefore athleticism will wane unless corrected.

The Pendulum Hip Press was designed to specifically target the hips and is a great exercise to help correct reoccurring conditions. Get the Hips Strong.
