After making quite a bit of progress this week getting my tilted hip to rotate up, however not stay in place, I have an observation I'd like to share and receive thoughts on.
Once loosened up, I can only get 1 hip into a good position, in doing this the cables running down my spine on the same side spring into action and support my back, freeing up my other back muscles on that side which have been on tension. The shoulder on this same side relaxes and falls into a good position. At this point, my chest and arm loosens up and blood flow increases nicely down my arm. Increased breathing capacity, neck relaxes, and all those wonderful side effects of falling into place. Keep in mind, this only happens on 1 side at a time.
The anomaly I'm seeing is that my body will rotate sides as if waves are rolling through my body. Muscles relaxing as other tighten in an ebb and flow from right to left. It is a very odd sensation but I know it is a move in the right direction because some of these muscles have been under tension for over a decade and are now getting some relief. Currently, I am placing a lot of focus on mobilizing my overly tight hamstrings, quads, hip, glute, adductors, and upper/lower back, with a slight emphasis on calf, shoulder, chest. Because of the tilt, I am severely deficient in right glute strength however besides walking, standing, ect, there is very little exercise in which my hip doesn't rotate back down, that will allow me to build strength faster in that area.That being said, my question is: Is there a place of tension in which I should focus on primarily that will feed enough slack into the system allowing my spine, hips, and shoulders to align?
