The middle picture is looking down on my Right quad. You can see a depression where the arrow is. I lack full hip extension (R>L) and when walk, my right hip is dragged into external rotation when it should be internally rotating to load the big toe. As a consequence, my foot has started to collapse medially to adjust for the lack of mobility at this hip. ___________________________________
I could strengthen my hip forever, mobilize my ankle, strengthen my core (all the structures that have adapted and “take the hit” for the lack of hip mobility) and it will never be as effective as getting the area of restriction moving. That’s why we have to fully assess and avoid cookie cutter treatments, and give the body what it needs...which is specific to the person. So if someone says, “X is the best treatment for Y” they show they probably don’t understand.
