Case Study: Hip Joint Pain in a 30 year old Female Weightlifter


A 30 year old female weightlifter had bilateral hip joint pain.

It was present for 8 months and she’d previously experienced 24 visits of Graston technique on her groin muscles with minimal improvement.

After 3 visits at Barefoot Rehab, she was 80% improved.

Tests referenced from the case study:

  • Thigh to Chest Test – takes 2 minutes to test yourself.  You’ll need a partner and somewhere to lie down.

Update 6/9/16: Since the video above was recorded, Sari has improved further. When she decreased her high intensity weightlifting load 5-6 days per week to 3 days per week and added CrossFit, her symptoms improved from 80% to 95%.

Lesson: Volume matters.
