Working with a ballet dancer with hip pain, even with a very subtle driver, means continuing to look at the full movement system in its entirety!
Regional exercises targeted at the hip may not solve the issue and stretching may contribute further to the problems.
Listen to the story, ask questions, and find out where the real issues are!
Some pain issues may not show up in regular human movement, but in meaningful movement within the requirements of the performance.
Join us as we discuss this unique case, how the issue was explored and interventions that were applied. Hint, what do retest and resets do for independence for this athlete?
