Physical therapy doesn’t help hip osteoarthritis?

November 9, 2015

I’m a fan of the site Doctor Skeptic. The thesis of the site being a lot of the treatments we perform are ineffective when measured against placebo. That we aren’t doing enough research to see how many treatments fit under this umbrella. That the ethical considerations here are hypocritical. “It’s not ethical to do a study […]

On structural adaptation limitations (of the hip)

July 29, 2015

One of the most repeated questions I’ve received the last couple of years deals with wanting to change human structure. This has been primarily related to hip retroversion, due to a post of mine on the topic. Despite my efforts, the point of hip retroversion being a structural “issue” hasn’t hit home for many. In that it’s […]

On a recent post someone left this comment: “People need to relearn how to walk. Chi Walking and Chi Running does just that. You’ve gotta look into it!” Because I’ve received four comments, not counting ones I’ve deleted, telling me to check out Chi running, I replied: Dear Chi / Wholistic running people, If any of you […]

Foam rolling is one of those polarizing topics. To some it’s another coming of Christ; others swear it doesn’t do anything. Hell, some say it’s detrimental. These argumenters will go into all the physiology, what happens during massage, what scar tissue is, etc. and try to make an argument from that angle. This has confused […]

I’ve found any discussion regarding structural abnormalities of the hip to be really confusing. I’m going to try to simplify this and, hopefully, not lose any technical aspects in the process. – Common structural hip issues When talking about structural issues at the hip the first area causing confusion (at least for me) is the […]
