Hip Stabilizers

Dr. Brooks Newton Articles

While we commonly think of the hip in regards to mobility, one of the biggest sources of faulty movement stems from a lack of stability at the hip.  Stability of the hip is a function of the internal and external rotators of the hip.  These two muscle groups are found in close proximity to one another.  Commonly, these structures can become glued or tacked onto one another.   This gluing or tacking inhibits the ability to these muscles groups to contract, thus limiting their ability to stabilize the pelvis.  An unstable pelvis transmits aberrant forces either up or downstream resulting in:

  • Low back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
