The hip joint is a ball and socket joint. The position of the pelvis dictated the positioning of the femur in the hip socket. Most hip conditions are related to faulty loading secondary to faulty alignment through the hip. The SymFit® Healthy Hip program restores healthy hip loading from a simple premise; ensure that every exercise is performed with the pelvis in neutral position and the hip stabilizers are activated allowing for symmetrical loading through the hip. Treatments will combine manual therapy around a functional conditioning program to break faulty loading patterns. Load tolerance based milestones are built into the program to ensure safe progression.
The SymFit® Healthy System restores healthy alignment through has 6 exercises designed to help you condition yourself to maintain the optimal alignment through the hip in standing, going up and down stairs, squatting, lunging and pushing.
It takes about 2 weeks to restore access to neutral spine and hip alignment; another 2 weeks to condition you to perform you daily activities without faulty loading through the neck and low back. An additional month of group fitness classes is needed to condition you to perform your sport and recreational activities from neutral spine alignment.
Long term maintenance is enhanced with our video on demand product SymFit®TV which provide you access to all the workouts, self-correction techniques and educational resources prescribed during your treatment.
The SymFit® Healthy Hip program will be modified for those that have had hip surgery consistent with your physicians orders. The SymFit® Healthy Fitness System is an ideal post-surgical rehabilitation program as it takes maximum advantage of the healing time by neurologically conditioning you to move from neutral spine ensuring a safe strengthening phase when appropriate.
