MMA & KNEE Pain: Add CARs to Get Your Hips Mobile

Our client, Bob, who trains BJJ and Judo, complains of left knee joint pain after rolling on the mat, with a focus on leg sweeps.

That’s too much stress to the knee joint, particularly for those who have limited hip mobility.

If the hips don’t move, your knees may try to take up the slack, kicking, sweeping, and pulling guard beyond their limits.

Let’s use CARs to increase his hip mobility. CARS is an acronym for Controlled Articular Rotations. We use CARs to improve hip joint health and unload our knees.

Watch Bob’s hip mobility program we have him perform BEFORE rolling and sparring on the mat.

We love MMA at MovEvolution.

Heal. Move. SPRAWL. Evolve.
