Are your hamstrings notoriously tight from BJJ? This stretch not only dynamically stretches the hamstring musculature but also provided a mobilization to the hip joint which means it gets the hip loosened up as well. The result is better flexibility, better hip mobility, and decreased pain in the hip joint.

Fix It With This Technique.
I received a question on Youtube on how to address inner hip/groin pain. I didn’t get much information on the mechanism of injury, how the injury occurred, or how long the pain has been there so this video is meant to encompass just a few of the techniques that can be used. Trial and error will be something to keep in mind as some techniques may be more effective than others. I would start with gentle range of motion and movement in the area to a comfortable range. Gradual progression to stretching exercises. Also do the exercises to comfort and discontinue if pain increases. Seeing a medical professional is always a great idea if symptoms do not improve. I break down a few of the techniques that I have demonstrated throughout some of the videos on the channel and picked the ones that could get some results and improvement. Make sure to think about the body as a whole and not just look at the hip for treatment, but also address the low back as well as the knee for possible dysfunction or causes of pain at the hip.

Pain or difficulty with bringing the knee to the chest when performing guard retention or with general movement of the hip? This technique will not only improve motion but will decrease tension in the hip flexors as well as reduce pain. Use the voodoo band and perform a functional movement and strengthening exercises such as a squat to “trick” the hip into flexion without activating the hip flexor muscles so that way you will not increase your pain. The voodoo band is a great option as it can get into areas such as high into the hip joint more easily. Give it a try!

In the 5th video of the Toe Rehab series, I demonstrate the transition to balance, strengthening, and plyometric exercises. Although these drills are not specific to BJJ, they are a good initial step prior to full grappling. As always, let pain be your guide and discontinue if there is any increase in symptoms. This is 1 week out, the severity of your injury will dictate when or if you should start these exercises. Seeing a medical professional is always a good idea if you are having intense pain, lack of improvement in symptoms, or are just concerned about your injury.
