Hip mobility is something that is critical for humans to have successful movement. It is one of the core regions that help transmit muscle actions between the upper and lower body, helps us move (such as walking and running). Many people suffer from hip problems. Individuals that work desk jobs or that have sedentary lifestyles will end up suffering from postural dysfunctions (upper and lower crossed syndrome). I found an awesome blog on the NASM blog site that does in to massive detail on this dysfunction and how to correct it. Click here to visit the blog.
