Forums General Hip – Internal rotation Re: Hip – Internal rotation

As someone who only “understands” complete body dysfunction, my instinct when reading this post is to ask, how is your other hip is performing?.  Does the other hip have better IR than ER?  Just wondering if there is some compensation happening behind the scenes.

My dysfunction stems from major spinal faults to which I’m in process of correcting. One hip has been severely ER restricted causing the other hip to become ER dependent for stability.  By freeing up my ilio-psoas on the tight IR side, I am able to begin working on freeing up my glute, hamstring, ect on the other side.  Strengthening the quad and adductor is also necessary to support the new load.
