You can perform this simple test on your own at home. It is designed to assess your hip rotation mobility. Specifically, this helps to evaluate internal and external rotation, only 2 of the motions that could be contributing to hip stiffness. Give this test a try on your own at home.
Start by sitting on the ground with your hips and knees bent to 90 degrees as pictured below.
Without using your hands for support, transition to sitting on your butt with your heels remaining in contact with the ground.
Rotate both legs to the other side. Make sure to keep your chest up.
*If you experience any pain while completing this test, you should just stop there and reach out to us. One of our therapists would be happy to perform a brief injury assessment to determine what might be causing the pain, and if any specific treatment is recommended.
