The ‘Kimura’ mobilization for the Hip capsule
A while back I posted the ‘Kimura’ mobilization for treatment of internal rotation blocks in the shoulder (CLICK HERE TO VIEW IT). I later posted another of my ‘Joint Lock mobs’….the ‘Heel hook mobilization’ (CLICK HERE TO VIEW IT). Here I demonstrate my ‘Kimura’ mobilization for the hip joint. This is a very effective way to increase motion into internal rotation when blocked by capsular restriction. The addition of P.A.I.L’s (Progressive Angular Isometric Loading) exercises with this technique is especially effective in regaining a functional range of motion. Enjoy!
