I discovered Eric Wong in 2013 because I was searching for a conditioning program for MMA fighters. I have been following his blog since that time. Eric is an expert on flexibility, and he is also the creator of the new Shoulder Flexibility Solution. I practice martial arts since I am 7 years old and let’s say that I am not the flexible type. It was nearly impossible for me to throw high kicks with my right leg. With the knowledge I acquire since that time, I know that a lot of movements comes from the hips so I wanted to increase my hip mobility.

What causes Hip pain and how do we treat it

The hip is what attaches the leg to the torso of the body. Many causes of hip pain can come from the joint itself but keep in mind that it may also come from areas that surround the hip. Inflammation, swelling, redness warmth and trouble with your hip flexibility, are signals and symptoms that a problem may exist.

What causes hip pain?

Hip pain can come from the hip joint itself or it can come from the structures surrounding the hip.

Pain can appear because of an illness or injury that causes inflammation. It can fill the hip joint empty spaces with fluid or blood resulting in pain.

Hip Fracture: Falls are the most common way to break a hip. The location of the fracture is very important because it will determine which type of operation is needed to repair the injury.

Contusions or Bruises: Even if there is no break, these injuries can be very painful in the hip area. It can take the form of Sprains (due to ligament injuries) or Strains (occur because of damage and inflammation to muscles and tendons).

Overuse Injuries: Muscles, tendons, and ligaments can become inflamed and cause hip pain due to overuse injuries. This hip injury can come from a daily activity or repetitive movements that can irritates the sciatic nerve.

Bursa Inflammation: The bursa may become inflamed for mutiple of reasons, often due to minor trauma or overuse. The inflammation causes the pain.

Arthritis: Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of hip pain in those over the age of 50.

Even if the hip hurts, the problem may come from elsewhere. Inflammation of the sciatic nerve can cause hip pain. Other types of nerve inflammation may manifest as hip pain like we see in pregnancy. Hernia may cause pain in the front part of the hip.

You should seek medical care for hip pain if it comes from an injury. If the pain is gradual and does not respond to rest, medication or exercises you should also seek help from a professional. Making the diagnosis of the cause of hip pain begins with the health-care professional. A physical examination will be done and the focus will be on the hip, the legs and the back. X-rays or magnetic resonance will occur if the specialist think that there is a fracture of the hip.

What can I do to treat my hip pain at home?

Rest is very important but you must do a gradual return to full activity. It is also important to exercise to maintain a certain range of motion to keep the whole body moving. It is important to listen to your body, and if pain persists, medical care should be accessed to help ensure your hips stay functional and healthy.

Acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and naproxen are good pain medications.

You can take a look at Eric Wong’s Hip Flexibility Solution if you really want to help you gain strength, speed and power from unlocking your hips. On his website, you can access “The 6 POWERFUL Hip Flexibility Solution Routines” and you have there useful information on how to quickly and effectively release your tight hips.

Unlock your hip flexors

Our hip flexors are the engine that makes our body move. Everything goes through the hips. When our hip flexors tighten it causes a lot of problems for people active like me. A lot of people end up having tight hip flexors and do not realize it.

Tight hip flexors are the root cause of problems such as:

  • Walking with discomfort
  • Hips locking up
  • Bad posture
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Digestive problems
  • Circulatory issues
  • Loss of sexual performance
  • Lack of Explosiveness in the gym or sports

Your hips are the bridge link between your upper body and your lower body. They are at the center of your body’s movement.

Even if you are a top athlete, you can suffer from a tight psoas due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair. The psoas is the only muscle in the human body connecting the upper body to the lower body. You have to go beyond simple static stretching. Holding a few static stretches for a period of time to try and gain hip flexibility is not the solution to unlock your hip flexors.

You need to strengthen the muscle from multiple angles using a variety of exercises in order to unlock your hip.

According to Mike Westerdal (creator of “Unlock Your Hip Flexors” and national best-selling fitness author), there is some specific techniques you need to unlock your hip flexors. Some of these techniques include:

  • Proprioceptive Peuromuscular Facilitation Stretching: It is a technique where you are activating a specific muscle in order to relax the muscles around a joint so you can decrease the stiffness around a joint.
  • Dynamic Stretching: This is where you are activating the muscle around a joint and moving that joint through its full range of motion in a progressive manner.
  • 3-Dimensional Core Stability Exercises: These exercises are targeting the muscle in all planes of movement so the core and abdominal muscles have good activation, endurance and strength in all planes of movement.
  • Mobility Exercises: These exercises are targeting the joint and doing movements and exercises that help the joint function optimally.
  • Fascia Stretching: This technique is targeting the tissue that muscles are surrounded in and working on loosening and lengthening the fascia.
  • Muscle Activation Movements: With this technique, we’re targeting those muscles that are not are not working properly and activate them in order to help the body move more efficiently.

Some of the specialists like Rick Kaselj are using a sequential flow method. The injury specialist Rick Kaselj helps to learn how to work through the right sequence of techniques to unlock the tension and tightness in my muscles to properly solve problems. Even if you know all the movements, you must do the movements in the right order.

There is a program called Unlock Your Hip Flexors made by Mike Westerdal and Rick Kaselj. This program is divided in two parts. The first is a Coaching Instructional Video where Rick takes you through each exercise in detail, so you fully understand why you are doing that exercise. The second part is a step by step format made so you can do the flow alongside the video.

Shoulder Flexibility Solution Review

shoulder flexibility solutionShoulder Flexibility Solution Review

Coach Eric Wong strikes again with his shoulder flexibility program. After trying his huge success “Ultimate MMA Strength and Conditioning Program”, it’s time to try his shoulder flexibility solution.

Why did I pick this program to improve my shoulder flexibility? To make this clear and simple, I had a big shoulder injury in 2012 while practicing judo. I could not rotate my arm in all the normal positions. I was searching for a program that was made for MMA athletes to strengthen my shoulders and I saw on Eric Wong’s blog “the shoulder flexibility solution”.

There is other reasons why someone would have tight shoulders. A lot of people that work in front of a computer adopt a posture that create discomfort which is a very bad habit and can create shoulder pain. It can also be a lack of movements that create the tightness in the shoulder. For the athletes, it can be caused by overuse of a muscle relating to your sport. Your level of stress and your sleeping position can play a part in the fact that you have tight shoulders.

There is tons of resources that you can find online but for now, we will be checking out the Shoulder flexibility solution.

Static Stretching Problems

Static stretching is not a lasting solution. You will not keep the gains you make. The tightness will always return. This type of stretching won’t improve your dynamic movement, it can actually hurt them. If you over perform a static stretch you can actually stretch your ligaments(that’s not good) ;).

Click here to visit Eric Wong’s Official Website

The Shoulder flexibility solution program really show you how to release the tightness.

Overcome Shoulder Injury

When the shoulder is injured, it is difficult to do daily activities but you have to be patient with your recovery. You should return to your sport slowly and when you do, warm-up well. An injury to a part of your body affects how your body moves.

Release your tight shoulders without static stretching

If all you’re doing is static stretching, you may improve range of motion in that stretch, but you are not improving your range of motion for dynamic movements. To improve range of motion for dynamic movements, you have to loosen tight muscles, improve your coordination, improve your strength and reprogram your neuromuscular system to use the new range of motion you achieve. The lack of strength and coordination can result in ligament injuries and muscle tears because these elements stabilize your joints at the end ranges of motion. If you over-perform a static stretch, you can actually get into stretching things you don’t want to stretch, such as ligaments. The result is an unstable joint and damage to muscles, ligaments, meniscus, bursa and other tissues.

Shoulder Pain? Treat the causes, not the symptoms!

Do not ignore the pain. The way you train might cause excess stress on certain muscles and can damage other tissues like ligaments or the joint capsules. You need to release the tightness in your shoulder if you do exercises like push ups, chin ups, bench press or even back squats. Rounded shoulders, forward head, or being unable to touch your hands behind your back, are signs of lack of flexibility in your shoulders.

If you hurt your shoulder and pain in your shoulder is due to inflammation, applying ice is generally a good idea (10 minutes ON, 10 minutes OFF). If a movement hurts, you have to stop. If you practice a sport, a shoulder injury is not a reason to stop training, you can work on other aspects of your game. There is always something you can do, beside worrying about what you can’t do.

Should I use Ice or Heat?

Use Ice:

  • When the shoulder injury is acute, or sudden, to help relieve and prevent swelling.
  • After a tough exercise to relieve muscle soreness and shorten recovery time
  • To recover from shoulder surgery by reducing swelling around the incisions

Do not use Ice:

  • To relieve shoulder stiffness
  • Before you exercise because it will hide the pain
  • If you have high blood pressure or If you have problems with circulation
  • On open wounds
  • On areas treated with anesthesia
  • On chronic shoulder injuries

Use Heat:

  • After the swelling has gone down from the initial injury, use heat to trigger the healing response
  • To help with shoulder stiffness
  • If you have a chronic or reoccurring shoulder injury, for pain relief

Do not use Heat:

  • On a new or acute shoulder injury
  • On any injury that is swollen or inflamed
