Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Your hips shouldn’t be that wide open. Oh not yours. Hey, welcome to Wednesday today. We’re talking about hips, 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Hips, and hip pain and hip movement. Why we have random, weird pain all over the place and what actually it is. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC

Pain In The Hip Area

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
How many of you guys had pain in the hip area? Like me too. Oh my God. And. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
We’re just running as a matter of fact. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
With all that gal. Right. It’s like, I’ve had it to where have you ever had it? Where you’re walking and you’re starting, like, you’re trying to walk across the street. 

The first few steps are great. Right, when you get to the middle of the street, like you become completely paralyzed with hip pain. And you’re like, oh my God. Oh my God. I break down like a robot. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
That’s not even a thing. That actually is a thing very much a thing. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
I do it. It’s so painful and it’s like right here and you’re just like, oh my God, I can’t even anymore. I can’t, I can’t even. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Just yesterday. I had the hip plan in front that hip flexor right in the front lit up on me. Luckily I had someone who was able to clear that out real quick and it’s much better today, but it came out of. 

Hip Pain Can Come Out Of Nowhere

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
It does. It seems to come out of nowhere. Today we’re going to be talking about pain in the hip area. 

We have the front of the paint, the front of the pain, the front of the hip, the side of the hip, the back of the hip or that deep hip joint pain. I don’t like the deep hip joint. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Pain. That’s the incapacity. Yeah. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
It’s like, there’s nothing worse. Today that hip, we’re going to start with of anatomy because we like, 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Know, I don’t know. I love it. All right. 

Most people think hips and they kind of think all over the pelvis, we’re going to do a two-parter on the hips today or today in the next week, because the hip has actually the femur and the pelvis put together. 

What? So there’s two parts to it. Right? And so it’s never just one thing. We have these three big bones that come together next week. 

We’re going to talk more about the pelvis pain in the hip this week, we’re going to be talking about the femoral pain. So right now we do know, right. The upper part of our thigh is called the femur. 

The Acetabulum

Right. It goes into, what’s called the hip joint or the coxal joint, which is your acetabulum. They think of it as like, it’s like the saucer, it’s the cup, it’s the vinegar cup, the acetabulum. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
And it fits in there. It’s this really cool joint because it’s exceedingly mobile, right? It’s the most, one of the most mobile and durable joints that we have in the body. And it’s the largest joint. We. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Got to support a lot of stuff. Yeah. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
It’s, it’s a humongous joint. It’s a ball and socket joint, which means it’s moving all over the place. Right. The largest joint of the body. It allows for a lot of really fluid movement and to an athlete that’s indispensable. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
A lot of fluid movement under stress, under strain. Right, right, 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Right. You gotta be able to go forward backwards. Abduction, abduction, internal, external rotation. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
I’ll show some of my flying splits on the second half of the second one. Not today. It’s not appropriate to, but on the next one. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Okay, good. Well, that’s something to look forward to through Isabelle. All right. To the athlete, you guys, the hip joint is indispensable. 

Their whole reason for the hip joint is it takes all the impact of the upper body and it takes it and disperses it and allows us to move in all different ways. Right. 

We have to depend on a healthy hip for maximum efficiency. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
And on our hips healthy. Most of the time, I would say no, most of the time the hips are, there’s some dysfunction happening in here 

And we won’t even know about it. We’re going to talk about that a bit. Yeah. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
And, and we rely on our hips because without them, it’s going to be moving all the way around the body. 

Remember it does, it takes the impact. So think about this. Imagine like you’re going for a run. And every time you land, you know, 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC

Book Free Assessment with Pro to col Sport Systems


Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Every time you run, your hip takes your hip door, it takes the entire impact of your upper body. Right. Because that’s what it does. It’s, it’s just impacting the earth as we’re hitting. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
I’m just thinking for me, that’s what it actually feels like. Yeah. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
I mean, me too. My niece, that’s a whole nother show. Whenever you use your hips, we have this cushion of cartilage, top of the hip joint right here that actually acts as a cushion. 

It helps to prevent friction as your hips move around your socket. Right. Even though it’s built to withstand a huge force and it’s seemingly so durable, it’s not indestructible, not at all. 

A lot of times we put a lot of force into the hip. We put a lot of like pain and push and power and pull and grind into that hip joint, thinking that it’s just going to last and last year, 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
That’s something I keep saying. It’s like, the body is amazing. It can hold up and withstand a lot of tremendous force that we demand on it. 

It can do it and do it until it can’t. It has, all of a sudden, I don’t know what happened now. Yeah. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
With age and force and wear and use cartilage wears down and can become damaged. I mean, that’s what happens in the body. 

That’s why we get the arthritis and all that good stuff. We have muscles and tendons and the hip can get overused. We’re going to talk about that today. 

Bones in the hip can break during a fall, yes. Ma’am or lead to other injuries, like getting in a car accident or whatever the case may be. 

Any of these conditions can lead to hip pain. You have your bones, you have tendons, you have muscles, you have ligaments, you have cartilage, you have acute injury, all leading to different types of hip pain. 

If your hips are sore, we’re going to give you a rundown of what might be the cause and what might be causing all of your discomfort. Okay? 

We’re talking the joints of the hip and pelvis, the hip today, the pelvis next week, the hip joint, the sacroiliac joints hip joint is here. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
The SSI or the sacroiliac joint is here. The pubic synthesis down here that makes up your hips guys. We there’s a lot going on in here. We have soft tissues, right? The muscles, the tendons, the bursa. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Are you saying there’s a few muscles that attach to this. There’s. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
A few muscles that are attached to the hip. A couple, just a couple. We have the bursa, which is that fluid filled SAC that prevents a lot of friction and impact. 

It’s helpful fascia, which can, as we know, connects everywhere, we’ve got the bones, we’ve got that big femur, your thighbone. We’ve got the bones of the pelvis. Those are important. 

We have all of the musculoskeletal problems in the body, which are really, really important. Right. We have all postural stuff and they tend to refer. Something’s not right up here or down here, you’re going to get it in here and versa, right? 

It’s that kinetic chain issue. We also have problems with organs or other body systems or health issues that can refer into the hip and it can masquerade as hip pain, 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Muscular thing. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
We are going to talk about some of the conditions that commonly cause hip pain. We’re going to go into how we see it and how you can actually kind of move it. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Through. So excited for this one. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
I know, I know I am. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Too. I’m going to actually learn something. You. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Pay attention. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
You should. The first thing that we’re going to talk about his arthritis, right? Arthritis, 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Got an arthritis issue, arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, almost most of the common causes of hip pain, right. Especially in older adults, the younger ones tend. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
The ones who’ve leveled up to that yes. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
As we’re doing right now. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
And, and not only that, but remember it’s an, a lot of arthritis is over use and a lot it is wear and tear. 

As we get older, we have more wear in our tear and tear on our joints because we’ve had more life in the world. So I know this is brilliant. Remember arthritis, it leads to inflammation because the itis is inflammation. 

It allows inflammation of the hip joint. And then there’s breakdown of the cartilage. That’s sitting on top of it that cushions your hip bone. Right? What will happen is the pain will start and then it’ll gradually get worse and get worse. 

You’ll feel stiffness potentially, especially in the mornings, your range of motion doesn’t allow for a lot of movement because all of that arthritis that’s causing the lack of smoothness. 

That’s breaking down will actually catch and move and allow for a lack of range of motion or movement in the hip, along with all the pain and all the secondary guarding of all the muscle tissues. 

Arthritis In The Hips

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
That’s a big part of what we have, right? A lot of arthritis you guys is because the hip joint is not sitting in the proper place all the time, or it’s being pulled because one muscle is stronger than the other side of the muscle, or one side of the body is stronger than the other side, or we’re dominant one area all the time. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
I wouldn’t even say that most all of these conditions are because of that. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Sure, sure. I’m just reminding them ahead of time. Yeah. Yeah. So hip fractures are the second one. 

Hip fractures are anytime you, we age, right? The bones can become weak, especially after we hit a certain period of time that we’re talking about, like in our forties and up the minerals that we have that are going into the body are more moving out of the body. 

We aren’t metabolizing and we are not holding these as strongly, right. We tend to not do as many impact sports, which doesn’t lead to a lot of bone strengthening. Remember that PCO electric effect. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
The same sitting on the couch and watching Netflix is not an impact sport. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
No, oh, not it’s impactful in other ways. 

Listen, we tend to, we have kids, were going about our business, whatever we are, we’re sitting a lot more for work. We’re not getting a lot of the compression into the bone. 

That’s allowing for the bone to stay strong. If you’re not building it up and so remember if you don’t use it, you lose it. 

As we go and we age, the bones can become weak and brittle, and then we can, bones are more likely to break during a fall. We have a tendency to fall and ship things and break things. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
The femur right there, and whole top part. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
That gets it a lot. It gets it a lot. So that’s a part of it. 

The hip pain too, that people don’t realize they could have of stress fracture. They can have a lot of stuff going on as we get older and, or acute car accidents, whatever. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
People, if you’ve seen the picture floating around Facebook and all that other stuff, somebody had their feet up on the dashboard and got in a car accident. Yeah. Please up, put your feet up on the dashboard. Yeah. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
That breaks a lot of things. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
You never get that in your cider that x-ray just does not leave for. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Sure. Yeah, that’s. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Awful. Anyway, 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
The other thing too is remember, we’ve got these things all over our bodies and our big mover muscles called baristas. 

The birth says what they are is they are these little fluid filled SACS that sit in between these big mover muscles. They allow to, they keep the friction from happening. 

Right? Cause we don’t wanna, we don’t want to be overloaded because we’re moving all the time. We want to make sure that we are moving smoothly. 

Sometimes when we move one muscle way more than the other, or one muscle, isn’t getting the attention that it needs, you’re going to have your bursa is going to get really irritated. 

When your bursa gets irritated, it will actually create hip pain for you because it throws all these muscles out of whack. People will have hip pain and it’s really not necessarily in the hip. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
It’s actually in the bursa Around the. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Hip joint, but it’s on the. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Right. It’s on the outside of the joint, but it masquerades as being on the inside of the joint and then tendonitis. 

Now we’re going back into the tendons. Remember muscles attached to bone via attendance, ligaments, attach to bone, the muscles attach, or the tendons attach muscle to bone. 

F for every big muscle that we have a tendon that has to be attached somewhere around this. So that connects it. So we have the movement, right? Let’s say we overload our glute muscles or our hip muscles, and we have the tendon. 

That’s just, that’s attached to it. It is super irritated because it’s being pulled and pulled and pulled 10 tonight is an inflammation or irritation of the attendance. It’s usually caused by like repetitive strain or overuse or under use of certain things, 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Overloaded, eccentric, eccentric load 100%. 

Muscle And Tendon Strain In The Hips

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Right. That leads us into the muscle and tendon strain, which then if you’re having tendonitis, which the tendon is irritated, right? 

Because the muscle isn’t working all the way, we can also overload the muscle and contract too much and because, and create a strain as happens when you have muscle fibers that are sitting like this, remember a muscle with contracts in on itself. 

It contracts too hard or pulls too hard too quickly. All of a sudden you do, you tear a little fibers. You’re tearing of the fibers is the actual strain that happens. If you have repeated activities, you’re overloading, you’re going to the gym for the first time in eight months. 

You decided to throw a PR up of your leg, press and leg, press a bus. You’re probably going to strain a couple of things. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
And load place on it. So. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Exactly. What happens is it becomes inflamed due to overuse there’s pain. It prevents the hint from working normally. 

You can have hip pain from strains surrounding the muscles surrounding the hip, which then brings us to the hip itself because of the hip isn’t really working right. The hip. 

Remember we flex, we extend, we abduct, which takes it Comerica Scully, which takes it away. We add up, which brings the leg together. And then we internally and externally rotate. There’s a lot of movement going on in this side, 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Right? He, he. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Is moving. 

We have this thing in here because if we didn’t just have muscles and ligaments and cartilage, we have to have something that actually holds that in and helps us like the impact. 

We have, what’s called your labor and your labor from you have it in your shoulder, which is a really mobile joint too. 

You have it in your hip because what’s what it is this is a little pad that helps to work with the impact, but also holds and keeps the. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Position of the joint, right? 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
It keeps the joint in and it holds it down because there’s so much movement. It’s really trying to stabilize and create a balance and stability into the joint capsule. 

And so they’re called your labor. If you have a tendency to overuse one area more than the other, or have an acute injury, this ring of cartilage, that’s sitting around onto your head of your femur, the cushioning will wear down and sometimes you’ll get a tear. 

You get a tear into your labor from a, what’ll happen is it will it’ll loosen up the joint immensely because the, the labor is actually a rubble rubber seal. 

Let’s say that it just seals everything together. It’s like, it’s like a cool little cartilage ring and it seals everything on. It seals your shoulder on, or your humorous onto your guano glenoid fossa in here to your glenohumeral joint. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
It also seals the femur, the head of the femur into the acetabulum. So we need that guy. Sometimes when we overuse it, you will have a labral tear. 

That will create a lot of painside the joint, especially internal rotation. Internal, anything where you’re trying to bring your knee in or bring it up and in, we’ll give you a ton of pain deep in that joint. 

That could become from a label terrorism. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Have to, but there’s test for it. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
No. Yeah. I would definitely, if you think you have something like that, and it’s deep into the, to the hip, go to the doctor and get that thing tucked out, right? 

These are really actually common, all really common issues that people have way more common than people think, because they think that where they’re just going to be walking around and their hips are supposed to be this monumental strength just keeps us going all the time in these hips. 

When they get pulled all over the place, they were down, 


Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Especially from city cities, one of the worst things we can possibly do and what we do, we all do it. We’re doing it right now. We all do it all the time.

What Happens To Your Hips When You Sit All Day

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Well, let’s talk then about that. Let’s do it say, so let’s talk about what happens when we’re sitting all day long guys. 

Let’s just actually look at Skully here. We think about it, that the hip, the way that the hit works is when we’re walking, it actually glide. If you notice that the head of the femur, it actually glides both posterior and anterior and posterior and anterior into the femoral, into the hip joint, right? 

When we’re sitting all the time and we’re sitting like this, not only are we sitting post-it carrier. Now the head of the femur is sitting posterior into the hip joint. Now we’re up into a compression into the top of the hip joint. 

As we’re sitting, we’re compressing all of the body weight. Remember when we sit it’s two times our entire body weight, that’s being compressed into the vertebrae. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
Into the hypnosis. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
No most people are sitting way longer. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
How long does someone sit all day? 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
I’m like eight hours. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
So you’re going to sit like that. We’re going to be compressed like that for eight hours in a day or even five hours, and then maybe take a break. You’re another five hours or three hours. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Right? So Andy, Mike makes a great point. Not only are we sitting, I don’t know. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
I read singles every Wednesday at 12 something. We get that. Not only are we sitting, right? Right. So you’ve got your hip joint. 

That’s now sitting in the same position. There’s no, there’s the synovial fluid that’s sitting in here. Isn’t getting any movement. 

So it’s drying up. Now all of the fluid that’s sitting in here, your cartilage isn’t working properly, right? 

Because it’s getting sticky, the snowmobile fluid isn’t working, right? Because it’s becoming viscous. Let’s talk about the bone compression it’s being pulled and compressed. It’s putting more stress into certain areas and less stress into the other. 

There is no impact into the femur. The femur and the head of the femur and the neck of the femur, aren’t getting the impact. 

So there goes your strength component, right? The bones can become a little brittle over time. I’m not talking about in 15 minutes, I’m talking about overuse. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
You guys know who you are that have been sitting around on your rear ends for eight months in quarantine. 

Or you have a desk job now because you’re on zoom meetings and you’re sitting for hours on end. Yes. I’m scolding all of you, myself included. We got, we have nothing going on in here right now. 

We’re also sitting. Think about all of these quadricep muscles that are the front of your thigh that are now in a shortened position because they start right here. 

Shortened Quads Due To Sitting

We’re in a stance, they’re in a stretch when we’re here, they’re shortened, chronically, which means now they’re not getting any real blood flow, but neither are these guys back here, them big glutes of ours and the hamstrings are shortened, especially because of the knee is bent. 

And then the glute is super stretched. So there’s tone, but it’s weak. When you’re sitting for a long period of time, it actually it’s called an ischemic effect. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
It actually takes the blood flow away. It’s like you have you guys ever squeezed your fists really hard. 

You see the white spots in your knuckles or squeezing your hand. You’re left with the white, that’s an ischemic effect. 

You’re squeezing and you’re compressing, there’s no blood flow going on back there, the way that it should because there’s no contraction. These poor hips of ours are now left in a really vulnerable spot. 

Where they’re supposed to take all of the compression and all of the impact they’re left, where this bone is being overused. This bone is being underused. 

Remember that whole Wolf’s law, if you don’t use it, you lose it. Where are the, where? I always say it, the energy goes. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
With the attention flows. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Or the intention goes where the energy flows, whatever the case is, the attention’s up here. 

There’s no energy going here. So there’s no blood flow going here. There’s no remodeling going here. It’s going here guys. That’s where the breakdown of the hip joint actually occurs. 

Now you’ve been sitting here for, I don’t know, 65 hours, right? You’re listening to us because you love listening to us every 30 minutes for every Wednesday. 

Now, all of a sudden, you take your life back down and you’re straightening it, but now it’s kind of stuck like that. So, now this is actually kind of what happens. 

You’ll be able to straighten it, but now if you notice that hip joint is not moving effectively, all of these muscles are super tight because they’re chronically shortened. 

These guys aren’t working to actually pull you back. And the pelvis is now moving forward. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Hence the hip joint pain. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
There’s also a phenomenon that comes from sitting on your butt for so long, you’ll get what’s called glute amnesia. 

Your brain will actually forget where your butt is. It’s now having a suit hyper-focus on the quad. As to become quad dominant, you start to have that actually, how he was right there. 

You have that forward bend. You’re staying in a forward bend rather than being able to. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Fully up. Right. And, and yeah, and think about this. Remember we glide posterior, right? 

That femoral head is sitting now, posterior, even if you’re extending, it’s still sitting posterior. It’s back here in the back of your hip joint. So you can’t actually extend. 

Now, it won’t allow for full extension, which now inhibits your walking. Now as you’re walking, you’re putting more pressure one side than you are the other. And again, you’re banging down this hip. 

The one thing you guys need to know about bones is the middle of the bone is the hard part. The ends are spongy. They’re always remodeling. 

There’s a lot of blood flow. There’s a lot of lymphatic fluid and there’s a nerve system in there. If we’re not able to like impact it fully straight down, and we’re here all the time, but we can’t really extend. 

Where do you think is getting the impact? 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
This is happening all the time. It’s smashing down all of the bone around it. We can actually be creating our own, I own hip pain just by sitting too much just by use. Just not even being able to understand. 

The funny thing is, you’re not going to feel it here. We’re going to feel it right here in the front of your hip, in the hip flexor, because that hip flexor now is going to be flat inflamed. So we have three of them. 

We have the TFL that’s sitting on the outside, right? That, that tends to flush a lot. It sounds like a cool coffee drink that allows you to hit flex and internally rotate that’s missing because we’ve been sitting for so long. 

You’ve got so as then an hour attaches to your lower lumbar and sits all the way through and attaches down here that brings it up or brings the trunk to it. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
And then you got to right. You’ve got the third one, which remember we said that quadricep muscle, it attaches here to the AIS, to the lower part of your pelvis and it crosses the knee. 

If you’re sitting like this all the time, this is super short and it’s going to be inflamed. We get clients that come to us with pain in the front of their hip all the time. It’s actually due to the fact that their pelvis or their femoral head is sitting posterior like this. 

They did it because they’re sitting too long like this, or they’re sitting too much, or they’re doing the same thing, or they’re not moving or they’re sitting you’re, they’re not extending. 

With Hips, It’s Move It Or Lose It

If the femur cannot extend fully and can’t rotate into the joint, you’re going to get more joint pain, but you’re going to get more joint breakdown. That’s kind of the bigger picture here. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
We are doing actually the hips in two parts, because it’s that important. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
We’re just barely scratching the surface. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Here’s the cool thing. Can it be fixed? 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
And that’s the thing. Yes. We’re going to not only talk about that. I’m going to show you some secrets that are not so secret. 

Why don’t we divulge it? You can actually stop this and reverse it, or at least stop it for where it is and you stop the degeneration of that. Yes. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Yeah, absolutely. It can. It can be reversed guys. That’s the cool part. 

You can actually mobilize this to move forward again and anterior and to put this back in order, and that gives more synovial fluid. It just makes life happy back in here. 

Again, not only that, but it’ll make you better, more efficient in your sport. It’ll more make you more efficient in the world. 

It’ll make your back happier because your back’s probably taking it out to and, or up and down the chain. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC
And yeah, this is what I’ve got. Anything up here that’s been a chronic and it doesn’t seem to go away and it might be coming because of that hip. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
So you may have pain. That’s just right here. Again, it might be right back here and you never want to wait too long, because if you wait too long, then it’s going to degenerate past the point of you being able to do anything about it. 

That’s where those hip replacement things come in, ? We want to try to keep you guys away from it as much as possible. So can we get it? Yeah. 

The first thing that you guys can do is start softening up the soft tissue in the front, stretch your quads. The second thing is activate the glutes. 

Activate Your Glutes

Remember they don’t know that they’re not working. They’re, your brain actually thinks your butt is now in the front. You’ve got like a front, but so we need to take the front button and put it back into the back. 

Because that’s really where it needs to be in order for us to do this, you can’t do your quadriceps, bring your knee up, your, your glutes extend the leg. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
Now you’re asking the hip flexors to do both your brain doesn’t know the difference it’s been rewired. 

We just need to go and reset your software in that one. Okay. There is a lot in this next week. We’re going to talk about actually how we go about mobilizing this. We’re also going to talk about where the pubis comes in and where the sacrum and the ilium come in, because these are a big part of it. 

If you’re having any kind of hip pain, stay with us for next week and we’ll go through all of this cool stuff again, if you have anybody who needs to needs any information about their hips, who’s having recurrent chronic hip pain in the front of their hip flexors, where they just can’t or they just feel like they’re off, send them this video, have them watch it. 

We would love to help you guys out in any way. 

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
If you have anything going on, let us know otherwise, we’ll see you next week with part two of the hips. 

Mike Julian LMT, CAMTC

Julie Pitois LMT, CAMTC
A great one.
