Legacy Center Sport Tip: The Stretching Debate- Part 2 of 3

By March 13, 2013December 9th, 2014Daily Posts/Tips

Case Histories: Defenseman in the NHL perform an inordinate amount of “pivots” on the same leg/hip coupled with regular use of gluteal muscles and psoas which makes the potential for hip problems high… just look at the amount of surgeries for hip dysplasia. A common trait amongst these defenseman other than the aforementioned skating patterns is a lack of MyoFascial Stretching! I pose this simple question, if the goal is to prevent arthritis and hip related problems how can this be achieved without MyoFascial Stretching? There is no amount of strengthening or re-enforcement exercise that can be done to create space in the hip joint and surround structures without MFS!
