Shake those hips

Hip flexibility, or lack thereof, is a massive determinant of both injury-based and performance-based outcomes in athletes. A stiff hip in one or more directions or planes of movement means muscles around the hip or elsewhere in the lower limb need to fight harder and against resistance to perform a desired movement or technique, increasing the risk of injury and handicapping athletic performance.
The above video gives a short overview of some gerneralised stretching for the hip, but professional advice should be sought regarding flexibility needs specific to a particular person or sport. Book an an appointment with one of our Physiotherapists today.
