Possible Rotated Hip

I believe I may have a rotated hip but not confirmed by anyone yet. I'm hoping to restore proper funtion back to my pelvis. I've been following the book by Pete Egoscue called, "Pain Free." The book's focus is restoring function back to the body by aligning load bearing points in the body; I believe it is helping so far.

The signature exercise in the book is the supine groin stretch. I think this exercise relaxes the hip flexor muscles which allow the anterior rotation to be corrected? Please correct me if I'm wrong here. The are various other exercises to be performed aswell that include squeezing a pillow with your knees in different positions and extensions.

Anyone else trying similar exercises for a possible rotated hip? Was your rotated hip confirmed by anyone? If so, how was it detected?

    treatments than there are spinal surgeries.

    Before I would go into any exercise program, it is more important to have the problem diagnosed and then to have an exercise program that is approved by your doctor.

    Reading books is fine, you can learn all sorts of interesting ideas and facts. Thats good in theory, but you want hard cold facts

  • I'm just surprised people around these forums arn't more into the underlying problems that caused their bad back in the first place. Because even if the surgery is a success, the underlying problem of such things such as rotated hips and Sacroiliac joint dysfuction still exist and will undo what the surgery had repaired.
