Hi guys. I need some help with my friend. We both play soccer and have done so for most of our lives. He is 25 years old and his hips are a MESS! He has zero internal rotation in his hips and I mean ZERO! He walks like a duck all the time and runs as well. Both his legs are bad and he gets stabbing pain when he tries to rotate them internally and it even hurts just trying to keep his feet straight.
try these to start:
Thank you for that, I will show him these. Yes I am a pro user and there is a lot of great info on this site and has really opened up my eyes!
I am not an expert at looking xrays so can’t help you there. however, if that is his front view, i would say that his left pelvis is higher than his right. if you lay him down and pull his legs straight, i bet his legs are of different lengths. give that a look. however, i would first test the assumption that it is fixable and not a structural problem.
Thanks for these suggestions. Another question, our goalkeeper is unable to lock out his knees or his elbows, I’m not talking about hyperflexion but the opposite! His elbows and knees are just stuck in a bent position… Is it arthritis or is this treatable with stretching and smashing??
for the knee, try:
For your friend with the hip, he has a CAM hip. Look for that, Kelly talks about tha in some of his videos about internal rotation (he is talking about mushrooms when talking abou it i think 😉 ) = hip impingment !!.
He really need to work with distraction!!!! always, try to get as much of mobility as you can and work on evrything around it like David was saying. Definatly work on glutes and posterior capsule of the hip !!!!
Work on i but be gentle , listen to the body, cuz his cam is here and he can dameg his capsule/labrum when he overdoes!!!!
Greetings from belgium
I’m looking for videos in pro daily rx for this hip issue but it’s very hard to search.
