Hip Stability

by Tanya Thompson

Outline of course: The hip stability wow factor.

As we age or do specific sports, our hips take a lot of strain which results in wear and tear of the joint or instability within the joint due to predominant or weaker muscles or movement compensations. Before we can create a client specific movement and rehabilitation program, we need to be familiar with the structure of the hip joint as well as the possible compensations that could occur during movement. When these compensations occur, what would the possible reason for this be? Hip stability is reliant on spinal and pelvic stability and therefore a hawk’s eye is required when assessing a client’s hip movement. Client movement or musculoskeletal restrictions have to be considered as this will affect the program that you have designed for them. This course provides you with a comprehensive yet safe hip stability program with all of the additional factors i.e. spinal and pelvic position in it. We take specific pathology into consideration and look at the most effective way to avoid injury.                                                                      


We want the professional to provide their client or patient with a client specific hip stability program that takes injuries, sport, age and precision in movement into account. This course will provide them with all the ‘look out for’ negative and positives in a hip program as well as teach them ultimate positioning for maximum output of muscle contractions. If this program is followed, then their clients or patients will achieve amazing results with long term effective movement.
