Strength in Conditioning for Wednesday, February 19, 2014
The hip joint capsule is both strong and flexible; it bears the weight of our body as well as the tremendous tension created by it’s neighboring leg and core muscles (which are the largest muscles in the body). On top of this, the hip joint capsule enjoys the second widest range of motion of all the joints (the shoulder joint takes first in this category). Within this mighty joint is Synovial Fluid, a lubricant which minimizes friction during movement while delivering nutrients and flushing out toxins from the joint. By stretching and mobilizing the hip joint capsule, we can stimulate the the flow of Synovial Fluid which can promote healing from inflammation and past injuries (1).
