In part 2 of my hands-on mobility workshop at LifeTime Athletic Club, I share three of my favorite stretches for the hip complex and how to perform them.
For the Wishbone Stretch:
⚒ Place patient’s foot on your ribcage and position your body sideways
⚒ Put just enough pressure on top knee to keep lower back flat
⚒ Hook your other leg on the patient’s foot and flex knee to increase rectus femoris stretch
For the Wishbone - Hamstring Stretch:
⚒ Utilize this stretch when patient’s lower back is arching during the Wishbone Stretch
⚒ Extend client’s top leg to lengthen hamstring and slightly posteriorly tilt pelvis
⚒ Hook patient’s foot in the same manner as the Wishbone Stretch
For the Wishbone - Glute Stretch:
⚒ Keep client’s top knee flexed and cross leg over their body
⚒ Interlock your hands and add compression to the thigh
⚒ Be careful not to induce anterior impingement
