Hip mobility deficits relate to internal dysfunction

It’s easy to see the hip range of motion deficit this young woman presents with in left hip external rotation, pictured in the photo on the right. This would be easy to brush off as unimportant since it was not associated with an active complaint of hip pain. Yet a significant mobility deficit such as this WILL have an impact, even if it’s not causing pain. Consider too the proximity of the hip to many internal organs, and the fact that the fascia surrounding the hip is continuous with the fascia of the abdomen,pelvic floor, and low back.
