Hip Rotator Cuff

Hip Rotator CuffThe latest Inner Circle webinar recording on the Hip Rotator Cuff is now available.

Hip Rotator Cuff

This month’s Inner Circle webinar on the rotator cuff of the hip was great.  We discussed how our knowledge of the hip has continued to increase over the last decade and has resulted in a much better understanding of how the hip is involved in the mechanics of the lower body and stabilization in multiple planes of motion.  We then broke down the hip musculature as either prime movers or prime stabilizers, and discussed how different positions and exercises impact both of these different muscles groups.

If this sounds familiar, it is, we use the analogy of the shoulder to show the similarities between the hip and the shoulder.

    Good webinar Mike. A couple of inputs about the THA questions you had. The direct anterior approach has no precautions as it cuts no muscles. They go in between your TFL and Sartorious and anterior capsule is repaired. For posterior approach, whether minimally invasive or not, most up to date surgeons repair the external rotators and post capsule now and it is to help with stability and to help prevent posterior dislocation not anterior. By not repairing them, you have a greater chance of dislocating posteriorly. You have precautions for a certain time, although not always, to allow the soft tissue to heal. Unfortunately I have direct experience with both :) It’s definitely different to rehab with a big chunk of your abductors and external rotators gone due to metal necrosis.

    Mike your stuff is very good but when I get 1/2 way through the webinar I get an echo, a double audio that makes it unintelligible. Is it my computer? Or your production? Please advise. Thanks!

      Bob, i think it may be on my end, sorry about that! I am working on making sure this doesnt happen in the future. thx

        Mike great webinar….if you can’t fix the sound, is there any way to get a transcript of the echoed auto? Unfortunately as Bob mentioned I can’t make any sense of the audio. Great content keep up the great work!

          Sorry about that! Essentially I say that you need to work glute strength and frontal plan control, but you can’t forget the deep lateral rotators to turn them on first. You have to work ER in both hip flexion and extension. Hope that helps!
