Hip Health Across the Lifespan

14th February 2018
Focused movement retraining can help hip pain and recurring pain in young athletes
plus, focused movement retraining can help walking in older adults

Moving well is key;
  • To managing hip pain and improving performance in young athletes

  • To improving walking in older adults and managing the problems associated with osteoarthritis of the hip

What we know;

Movement is complex! How we move, whether you are a young athlete or older person, is influenced by many factors, such as:

  • The activity performed e.g. a side cutting action in a young footballer requires a different pattern from climbing the stairs

  • The person e.g. a history of pain or injury in a young athlete or older person will influence the movement pattern

  • The environment e.g. performing in a match situation may influence the movement pattern, similarly walking on uneven ground can challenge the movement pattern

Movement Health

Contemporary science highlights everyone moves differently, however some movement patterns appear associated with hip problems in both the young and old. These less optimum movement patterns can be identified and changed.

Movement Health is all about optimising our movement patterns......

  • To managing hip pain and improving performance in young athletes

  • To improving walking in older adults and managing the problems associated with osteoarthritis of the hip

How?

It is simple to identify less optimal movement patterns. TPM Active Movement Specialists can run a series of Movement Control Tests which identify areas in your body e.g. hip, which could benefit from restoring more optimum patterns of movement. From the results of the tests, your TPM Active Movement Specialist will design a bespoke retraining programme and then you are on the road to better Movement Health.

And this programme can help you manage your hip pain and get better movement whether you are a young athlete or older person

The tests are specific to you - young athlete or older and active!
