DBM5| How Goalies Know If Hip Pain Is Hip Impingement (FAI)

Is IT FIA? Hockey Goalies


At some point every hockey goalie will have hip discomfort, but how do you know if that stiffness or discomfort is hip impingement or FAI? What does it mean if your butterfly is getting narrower? Is that hip impingement?

If you are having hip pain or chronic stiffness, you should always get it assessed by a good sport physiotherapist, but this video will help hockey goalies understand the signs and symptoms of hip impingement or FAI.

In LESSON 1 of the Dynamic Butterfly Mastery course I reviewed the bony anatomy of the hip joint – if you haven’t see that yet, then you can watch it here ? https://youtu.be/PjTEoBajgdk

Lets keep you on the ice moving the way you need to move by taking a proactive approach to hip pain and hip impingement.

Happy Hips, Happy Goalie!
