Download  iTunes  RSS

On this episode we look at the correlation between hip weakness and femoroacetabular impingement/labral tears. Is it all about the glute med? Can we just strengthen out of intra-articular hip injuries? Also, have you seen An Honest Liar yet???

The book Erik talks about during the episode:
