Core-Tex Hip Rotation Mobililty

With this demonstration and explanation, we are able to share the "how" and "why" of improving hip rotation via a traditionally sagittal plane strategy.  

In this video, we show a systematic way that you can improve your hip rotation mobility by NOT doing hip rotation. By understanding the functional geometry and architecture of muscle fibers, we can take advantage of the motion of Core-Tex to access all vectors of the tissue.

Working in only the cardinal planes is not enough.  And with the patented motion of Core-Tex, we are able to access all tissue vectors that are often neglected when working only in the cardinal planes.  

The systematic process shown here is fast, simple and provides immediate results to hip rotation ROM and control.  

If you are looking for more hip mobility applications, here is a list that will change the way you move.

You’re about to get detailed insight into an incredibly unique piece of equipment that is basically a Swiss Army Knife for optimizing numerous aspects of human movement.

It’s known as the Core-Tex Reactive Trainer. I bought it a few months ago and have been putting it through its paces, and…let’s just say it offers some very unique features we need to talk about.

As a physical therapist and strength & conditioning specialist who is obnoxiously passionate about helping patients and athletes overcome injuries and maximize their physical performance, I’m always on the hunt for equipment that can make a difference in their lives.

We often see our Core-Tex family assume upright balance training on Core-Tex goes from two hands on the handrail to hands free and no use of the handrail.  In other words, going from the most help to the least help. This may lead to a misinterpretation of Core-Tex being "too advanced" and a missed opportunity to scale your balance progressions in a way that allows the user to be successful.
Core-Tex plays well with others.  With the increased interest and research around dual tasking of cognitive exercises plus motor challenges, Core-Tex is emerging as a clinical favorite for many reasons:
