PT Inquest Episode 60: Hip Strength and Dynamic Lower Extremity Control

Download  iTunes  RSS

The idea of hip strength having an effect on lower extremity dynamics is not new. Is there actually a correlation between the two? What is the difference between kinematics and kinetics? Is the gluteus medius as important as we used to think? Can JW break down the number 60 into its component prime numbers???

Hip external rotator strength is associated with better dynamic control of the lower extremity during landing tasks.
