Correct Hip Tightness

Correct your Hip Tightness: The relationship of between your psoas, your breath and your trunk twist determine your hip’s ability to internally rotate (1). In 1998, I created the Shinbox positions and transitions (recently repackaged as the “90-90″ by some doing it incorrectly). I designed the Shinbox as a diagnostic of hip rotation to correct imbalance from rotational bias (primarily from excessive sitting and postural dysfunctions). Use my Mobility Ring as an assistance tool to gently “Steering Wheel” back and forth in an extended shinbox. Coupled with an exhale, you can aid the release of hip tightness, due to the signal it sends the nervous system when exposing the tension chain between trunk twist and internal hip rotation. Next, isolating the trunk twist in a hip bridge can be achieved with the aid of a Mobility Ring, since without, unilateral “cheats” cause you to think you’re fully rotating but actually hide your inner unit restrictions. Finally, I teach you a micro-flow to counter excessive sitting. One or two repetitions per side will both release most issues before they form, and reveal precisely which range in the relationship between trunk twist and hip rotation has become restricted. #scottsonnon #mobilityring #mobility #nmap #rmaxinternational @the_mobility_ring www.mobilityring.com 1. www.jospt.org/doi/full/10.2519/jospt.2013.4292?code=jospt-site
