A Case of Lateral Hip Pain

Jan 4, 2024 | Hip Pain | 0 comments

Consideration of lateral hip pain requires a thoughtful clinical reasoning process to discover the physiology/movement patterns as well as neural contributions required to make a diagnosis and successfully build an intervention that lasts. 

One size does not fit all – join us as we discuss the findings in this “not so unique” case and the discovery of the underlying movement patterns, impairments, and why lateral rotator strengthening is not always the answer.
