Femoral Hypomobility with Superior Glide

Femoral Hypomobility with Superior Glide

Description:

This is the diagnosis that most closely matches a hip osteoarthritis diagnosis.  Your hip is stiff and painful deep in the joint, especially anteriorly and in the groin.  Stiffness is probably worse after sitting awhile or when you get up in the morning.  Usually stiffness is present in all directions.

Treatment:

  • Manual therapy to improve joint mobility – a variety of mobilizations / glides.
  • Decrease dominance of hip flexor muscles.
  • Increase activation and strength of hip extensor muscles.
  • Self stretching / mobilization techniques to maintain range of motion.
