Hip and groin injuries are something that have plagued me throughout my sporting career, and had kept me out of action for quite a significant amount of time. In fact, in some ways, this triggered my interest in physiotherapy.
As I am naturally quite flexible, the route cause of my injuries is more often than not, stability related, rather than an issue of mobility. This is different for everyone, but is always important to find out early on, so that you can design your programme in such a way that will prevent the injury from recurring.
Establishing a good balance between mobility and stability is extremely important when returning to play from any injury. Here, I go through some of the drills I used as part of my own rehab. Give them a try and let us know how you get on.
