What Causes a Hip Drop when Running? Trendelenburg Gait [Ep68]

What Causes a Hip Drop when Running? Trendelenburg Gait [Ep68]

In this video, I want to take a closer look at what causes a hip drop when running. This is a trait I see in the technique of so many runners, and can be biomechanically linked to injuries such as ITB Syndrome, Patellofemoral Pain, Piriformis Syndrome, and Lower Back pain… to name just a few.

Learn the important roles of Glute Medius and Glute Maximus in providing stability around the hip to when running, and how when these muscles fail to perform their function, a visible hip drop results.

Of itself, the hip drop isn’t a huge problem… however it usually helps to inform us that there is a weak link around a given runner’s hips, that may give insights into why they have been injured in the past.
