Limited hip mobility is a common problem that can cause pain and/or compensations with the golf swing.
Backswing: back leg internally rotates, front leg externally rotates
Downswing and follow through: back leg externally rotates, front leg internally rotates
Hypomobility can contribute to swing faults including:
🏌️♂️Hanging Back (downswing)
🏌️♂️Loss of Posture
Poor hip mobility can also lead to compensations creating pain at the lumbar spine, knee, and ankle.
