While others are already on their way to the Jersey Shore for the extended memorial day weekend, I'll be lucky if I get Sunday off. But, here's an interesting one.
One of our basketball players comes stops in complaining of L groin pain. He claims the pain began shortly after a fall onto his L glut while being low bridged during an AAU game. His butt was pretty sore for a few days, but he didn't think anything of it. A few days later, his L groin began to inexplicably hurt. After ruling out L1 involvement, I dug in further.
The fall caused a left anterior innominate that is interfering with his hip flexion. My plan is:
1. Plenty of myofascial release to the L dorsal sacral ligs & glut.
2. MET to correct the innominate.
3. Modalities to treat the muscle irritation.
Any ideas for an exercise program to to keep the correction? Is there such a thing?
And don't say a BRIDGE.
(I'm not being sarcastic here- I'll explain why it's inappropriate in my next post).
