What is the most consistent movement or strength dysfunction that limits performance?
When the pelvis is out of its neutral alignment it can lead to poor performance and eventually cause an injury. To ensure proper alignment I recommend doing a general warm up then using a foam roller to massage the six important points on the pelvis. After that do a variety of squats and lunges to balance the pelvis before loading or doing dynamic warm-ups.
Transcript: "Hi, Jim, that's a great question. What is the most consistent movement or strength? Dysfunction that limits performance? I'm going to look at this and term and answer this in terms of what I see all the time that can eventually lead to an injury and or / / poor performance in their movement, abilities, as well as their strength and that is when the pelvis is out of its optimal position. So we sometimes say out of its neutral alignment and or we have a Function. So you realize this that when the pelvis, it has an up slip and or rotation, then the tensional balance throughout the entire system becomes off. So how we strike the ground when we run is off how I, how my body shifts. Its weight is off. So I'm not going to be as strong because as soon as I try to do something like a squatter, a lunge in my pelvis is is up slipped and rotated on one side and or just rotated opposite of one another. Then the way we receive forces is not very efficient. The hip joint itself is probably not in its instantaneous axis of rotation, the foot and ankle is probably not rotating pronating supinating all at the right times. And of course, that's going to affect all of our motor programs. So one of the things I always do with all the athletes. The first thing they do when they come in, as they do a general warm up just to get some sir. Elation going as I call Global circulation, then we do some local circulation in the form of rub and scrub around the pelvis. We take a foam roller and we wiggle against that and make sure that we line up our pelvis. So we go to Six really important points on the, on the pelvis. We go to the lumbosacral Joint, we go to the sacroiliac joint, we go to the iliofemoral Joint, we go to the pubic symphysis, we go to the greater trochanter, and of course we go to the missing one. on the they say iliofemoral joint. Anyways, those are the places that we go to and make sure we get a good rub and scrub in there and then we do a variety of different squats, body weight, and lunges to make sure that we balance the pelvis out before we ask them to load or to do any of their Dynamic warm-ups."
