Extreme Hip Pain Gone INSTANTLY!


♪ Bob and Brad ♪ ♪ The two most famous
physical therapists ♪ ♪ on the internet ♪ – Hi, folks, I’m Bob
Schrupp, physical therapist. – Brad Heineck, physical therapist. – We’re the real most
famous physical therapists on the internet. – In our opinion of course, Bob. – Today our title is Extreme
Hip Pain Gone Instantly! Boy that’s asking a lot, Brad. – Right, it’s a mouthful and
we’re going to get into it. And it’s a relatively simple
treatment, if you will. But before we go on, – If you are new to our channel, please take a second to subscribe to us. We provide videos how
to stay healthy, fit, pain-free and we upload everyday. Also, you’re going to

our social media channels and we’re always doing a giveaway. And today, we’re giving
away something really cool. Go to bobandbrad.com, giveaways section or go to bobandbrad, pinned
to the top of the page on Facebook. – Facebook. – It’s also in our
description below but, right? Today what we’re giving away
is the Renpho Foot Massager. So, this thing is, this
device is really cool. So, you can stick your feet in these. Brad is going to demonstrate here. – Well I’m not going to
put my feet in there. – Yeah, and it’s got different settings, it gives, you know, compression and it’ll also kind of roll on the bottom of your foot. – Right, it’s got a little
massage ball in there. – And to me, like the highest setting is just barely tolerable. Some younger people will probably think, “Oh, that’s perfect.” – Right. – But, so it’s got something for everybody so our patients love it. – What about the hip, Bob? – Oh, let’s get to the hip now. I’m hip! – So extreme hip pain. You know, we’ve dealt, Bob
and I’ve dealt with hip pain, well, personally myself– – I’ve had it myself too. – Sure. – And I’ve did some of
these, Brad, by the way. – Okay, yeah, this is
something we do in a clinic on a regular basis, for
some of the hip pain. Now we’re gonna look at the hip first, here we got Sam
– Sam. – And if we look at the hip joint, here we have the ball in the socket, we don’t have metal pieces in there, at least most of us don’t, hopefully, but there is some connective
tissue in the capsule, and a number of other soft tissues– – [Bob] That’s what the brown represents. – [Brad] Right. – [Bob] That’s what we call the capsule, it’s this tough ligamenta stuff that helps hold the hip in place. – [Brad] Exactly, so
there’s potential there for that it pinched, there’s
other tissues in there, I’m not gonna go through them all, they could get pinched in the hip that can cause severe pain. Also and most commonly it’s arthritis. – [Bob] Right, or the labrum,
part of it can break off. – [Brad] There you go, yep, that’s another part of
the cartilage in there. But what we’re going to do now, if the hip pain is consistently
with weight bearing, when you walk, when you put
weight through the joint, which is very common, can you
see that, Liz, can we zoom in? Excellent work. – [Bob] Again, we have
the ball in the socket. – [Brad] So what I’m gonna do,
if it’s with weight bearing, that means weight is
going through the femur, pushing the ball into the
socket, which is normal, but if there’s pain associated with that, often times it will go
the opposite direction, and pull, and separate it, that can relieve the pain instantly, and that’s where we got the title from, because you do that and the person says, “Oh, my goodness, that feels better,” you’re onto something and
you’re gonna work with that. – It’s a sign of what’s
going on a little bit too. There’s something in the joint itself that’s giving you trouble. – So I’ve mentioned that
this is relatively easy, and to do this, Liz
volunteered to be our– – I would say two of them are easy, one of them you’ll
probably need a therapist. – Yeah, probably for the
clinic, we’ll show you– – Yeah, we’ll show it to you anyway. – You bet. – We’ll give you the whole schmear. All right, we’re gonna switch places. – Okay, now, I would expect
you’ll see the camera shake and everything else going
around with Bob back there, but just be patient. – That’s right
– Everything will work out. – [Bob] Rookie, already shooked. – Okay, Liz isn’t mic’d
up, so she may talk, but you may not hear, it’s not
that we don’t want to hear, but for this purpose, this is okay. Are you ready, Bob? – [Bob] I’m ready, let’s roll. – Okay, so, you know, with
the person laying down, you can do it on the
floor, it’s kinda hard, on a bed is a best place, just like this. Liz will be completely relaxed, her right hip is the one with pain, when she walks it goes up and down steps usually gives that sharp pain . Simply what you’re gonna do
is have the person relax, and grab the ankles, I’ll just kind of wiggle
the leg a little bit to make sure they’re
relaxed and not tense, and then gently pull this direction so we’re putting traction on it. And I’ll do this and say,
“How does that feel?” With a little pressure, and
I mean just a little bit, and if the person says, “Oh,
that feels kind of good,” then I’ll pull a little bit more and if that feels better, I’m never gonna get to the point where I’m pulling aggressively. – [Bob] Brad, I wanna make
sure that the people know too, you would never do this with
a total hip replacement. – Right, this is, you
wouldn’t have arthritis from a total hip, yeah,
if it’s a total hip, it’s time to go to the doctor. – [Bob] Right. – And get the orthopedic
surgeon to look at, they’ll probably take x-rays and whatnot. So, I’ll do that,
sometimes I’ll pull on it, but it really won’t respond well, so then I’ll take the toes, or the leg and internally
rotate it slightly, just a little bit, not gonna twist hard, just a little bit till it stops, and then I’ll pull again and
see how it responds there, and then I may go the other
direction, ’cause sometimes, one direction, either inward or outward, can make a big difference
on the reduction– – [Bob] Yes, it can reproduce,
no, take away the pain is what I’m trying to say. – Abolish it, Bob. – [Bob] Abolish it, how’s that word? – If none of those work then I’ll do this, and I’ll abduct or go out
to the side, a little bit, and then I’ll put a little traction on it, and also I can rotate
outward or inward gently, and all of this is gentle. You do not need to pull
hard, if it’s gonna work, it’s gonna work really well,
and the person will say, “Oh, that feels good,” and then, I’ve done it where I’ve
just held people there for 30 seconds until I get too
tired, and then I’ll relax, and it can be real beneficial. If that works and the
person’s time to go home, and they don’t have anybody
at home that can, you know, reproduce a true treatment, – [Bob] Sure. – I’ll have the person,
why don’t you get up, Liz. If they have a stairway
or a stool at home… Now, Liz, we’re gonna
say it’s her left hip so you can see it, yep, Liz, I want you to stand here, with your sore leg you’re
gonna stand up, on your step, and hold onto the brail, or
here we got the buoy stick, just because it’s here and it works well, and really relax this leg, okay? And once you get it to
relax that’s the traction, the way the legs are
traction like me pulling, and then you’re gonna swing it forward and backwards gently, this is like the pendulum
exercise for the shoulder, almost identical, now, you
can put an ankle weight on, if it feels better. – [Bob] And that’s what Liz
has in place right there. – Now, a lot of people
don’t have an ankle weight, but if you happen to live in
a northern climate like we do, you can just put a pair
of winter boots on. (laughter) – They weigh about a pound
or two, or steel toe boots, if someone has some steel toe boots, anything it gives them weight, and the idea is to relax that leg and just swing it forward and backwards, there you go. How’s that feel, Liz? She say’s it’s incredible. – [Bob] Liz can have Wesley
hang onto her leg there, she’s got a little three-year-old. – Oh, yeah, that’d be great. – [Bob] You know, how
they hold onto your legs when you try to walk. – Now, we did mention there
was going to be a third way, but probably for the therapist to do. And it works best on a plank
that’s the right heighth, and if you have an adjustable
one that works better, but we’ll show you one of our tricks. So why don’t you bring that knee up, and actually when I was in PT school, this is one of the first
treatments I did on a real patient, she had severe arthritis
in her hip, she was young, she was like 40-years-old. – [Bob] Brad, you probably
wanna use a towel, too. – Yep, we’ve got it right
here, don’t worry, Bob. – [Bob] All right, you’re
getting me worried there. So he’s putting the towel around his waist and around Liz’s thigh. – Okay, so Liz is gonna put
the towel where it belongs. So we got it around her femur, okay? And what I’m gonna do is
I’m gonna hold her knee and bring this up to 90
degrees, and she’s relaxed, you feel comfortable? This is kind of hard to see,
but it’s around my waist, and I’m gonna push outwards with my waist while I stabilize her knee, and that’s gonna put traction instead of in a sagittal plane, it’s gonna go in a lateral
plane or abduct it, and can you feel that, Liz? Does that feel good? Yeah, see, thumbs up. This does typically feel good, whether you got a good hip or a bad hip because we’re just gently stretching it, and I’ll stretch this way, I may hold it as long as it feels good, if the person says, “Oh, that feels good,” I’ll hold it usually as
long as I can, which is, you know, 30 seconds, a minute, and then I’ll need a little break. Sometimes I may go to
this angle, or straight, and I’ll work whichever works good, Sometimes I’ll move it
gently if it feels good, so we get some motion. Now, we mentioned if
there’s a pinched tissue, or the capsule might be pinched in there, if we can get it out
of there and unpinched, and we can move it so it stays out, then you’re successful and
you’ll be able to walk around, and, you know, as a therapist
you feel like (gasp) and the patient loves you
because you just cured their extremely sore hip. So this doesn’t work in
all the hips, of course, but it’s easy to do,
especially the traction and the standing, and there’s
no negative effects to it– – [Bob] Now I was actually
able to do this to myself. I took a belt and I put
it around a stable object, it was actually a weight bench. – Oh, really? – [Bob] And then I just
scooted myself away from it, yeah, and it actually
took away my hip pain, I was having troubles with it. – I’d like to see a video of that. (laughter) – [Bob] Again, that’s
a lot more technical, I wouldn’t expect people to try that one, I mean, you can mention it to a trainer or a therapist and see if they can– – Someone with a little
experience in anatomy and working with people. So, I don’t know, Bob, if
this has anything to do with– – [Bob] We can fix just about anything– – Except for, – [Bob] A broken heart. – What do you say, Liz? – [Bob] Yeah, she’s showing
the heart, all right.

  1. Thank you for all advice you give.
    Could you make some videos for people who knit & crochet & other artist like beaders, tatters, illustrators, etc. People who sit & do close concentrated work.
    Also some advice for wait staff, cooks, & other workers who are on their feet all day. THANK YOU!!!

  2. The stool…duhhh me….I will try this in my daily therapy routine to help my arthritic hip! Thank you!

  3. What is the name of that last technique you showed, so that we can mention it without describing the whole thing?

    You guys really do a great job with your videos. You have helped me a lot!

  4. Gee boys that's the classic Physio error where you think that pain is coming from the site of the pain. Most hip pain comes from distortion of the hip joint/ socket because the pelvis is sitting up on the painful side, due to a functional short leg on the other side. Most hip problems are in the left hip on right footed people or visa versa. The pelvis sits high but the foot is still on the floor so it stretches open the hip joint causing the irritation. If people want to get rid of hip pain properly so it lasts they need to release the dysfunctional contracted muscles to drop the short leg or if you can't find a therapist that can do that, put a lift in your short leg side shoe to prop it up. Your video is entertaining but my bet is it won't help for more than a few minutes.

  5. Bob looking casual & Brad in a tie, it’s good to mix it up! Great video as always. I use my staircase in my house, I stand on bottom stair and hold on to the bannister to dangle my leg.

  6. This is how bad we need you guys. 1.1million subscribed. How is that not indicative of a health care crisis?

  7. I’m 36 and have chronic tendonitis in my hip flexor. It feels like pinching and hurts to sit, walk. I had an MRI that came up negative and hoping with my PT this will go away soon. Thanks for your video. Great timing for me – I’ll show this to her if she thinks I should do these.

  8. Tried the stool with an ankle weight that was in my box to give as a donation! So glad I saw your video 🙂 Will be doing this often and see how it works out. felt nice on my "good" and bad side.

  9. Thank you. My vets complain of hip pain due to history of walking patrol with heavy packs that are about 80 lbs. I will definitely try the traction maneuver with them to see if they have relief while they await their PT evaluation appointment. I hope you know how much I appreciate your videos. They are helping me help our nation's veterans at a rural community clinic.

  10. Hi Bob and Brad! Your videos are so helpful! Could you please do one on safe and effective core and back workouts for people with diastasis recti? That’d be great!

  11. i had so much pain in my hip it was hard to roll over in bed or get out of bed, or get on the stool. I watch this video last night, stretched it out and so much better. Thanks!

  12. I have no one to pull my leg. 🙁  I won't be able to relax while standing and swing my leg.  I'm going to design a rope and pulley system so I can get some traction while lying down.

  13. It would be funny to have a complilation of the homemade DIY ways folks have created to make their own equipment with what they had available.."with in reason of course"..☺

  14. I have s5to l5 fusion my hips don’t pull no more and I some times hurt. How would you do this.? Thank you

  21. Thanks again for posting sane step by step instructions that the layman and professionals can use. As a LMT, I use this on my clients. Thanks B&B!!!

  22. Is there a good video on fixing tight glutes? Something more permanent than glute stretches for immediate relief.

  23. Hey Bob and Brad , I hope you can answer on this question . Are you guys familiar with HIP RESURFACING ??? For older people that want to continue playing basketball , ski and running .Even as old ad 65 year olds . How have people fared in mobility after the procedure ? And this is supposed to be the alternative to hip replacement for active people. Thx guys for your response

  24. What if my leg pops when doing that abduction movement (pops moving in both directions)? The one where you were tied up to Liz's knee.

  25. Awesome you guys have microfons and we can hear you so good this time! Thank you bob & brad for your service!

  26. I have sacariliac joint dysfunction. Was in an accident over 10 years ago and still have extreme pain on a daily basis even when sleeping. Will this cure me? I'm desperate. No one has helped me. Chiropractors have tried and they can't do anything with my hips. I suffer all day long and it's limited me in every day life. I'm now 47 feeling like I'm 80.

  27. Can you guys please recommend an exercise for chronic trochanteric bursitis in the right hip? Have had a number of steroid injections into the bursa (OUCH!!), but it just doesn’t do much for me. The bursa is swollen and very tender to the touch. Can’t exercise because of it!

    BTW, the orthopedic surgeon who did the injections also x-rayed my hips and say they look good.

  28. Hi Friends i am so glad to writing this article today to tell the world how Dr OSO cured my lymphedema ,i have been detected with lymphedema since five years ago, ever since then my life has been in complete bizarre and agony,i have used so many drugs that was prescribed to me by several doctors,but it didn't cure my lymphedema neither did it reduce the pain,until a certain i was checking for solution in the internet,then miraculously came across Dr OSO the powerful herbalist that cure numerous individuals lymphedema INFECTION,then i contacted his whatsApp number at +2348162084839 or email: [email protected] i explained everything to him and him prepared a medicine that cure my lymphedema disease totally after receiving his herbal medicine, so my friends viewers why wait and be suffer when there is someone like Dr OSO that can cure any disease HIV/ CANCER/ HEPATITIS B VIRUS, you can contact his via : [email protected] or WHATSAPP +2348162084839 GOD BLESS YOU ALL?

  29. So, if her right hip hurts, she stands on that right hip and swings her left leg off the step? Seems to me it would be just the opposite.

  30. I just wanted to mention that between a couple of your videos including this one on hip pain therapy, I was able to identify that my issue was in my back and not the hip joint. Now that I’m focusing on my back when I feel the specific type of hip pain, I change my back posture (I typically feel it when I’m laying down to retire for the night) and almost instantly it feels different and less painful. Thanks so much!

  31. If a person has had hip arthroscopy (torn labrum, smoothed off and hip protuberance shaved off), can these be done? Thank you.

  32. THANK YOU !!!

    I've been dealing with upper leg pains (near the hip) for YEARS and this is relieving my pains (combination of standing on the first step of my ladder with one leg hanging, 20 pounds strapped to it's ankle and a belt tied from my upper leg area to a sturdy post to also apply some pull pressure).

    Thanks again 🙂 !

  33. Can you do a video about bursitis? I was diagnosed about three years ago with bursitis of my right hip. It was diagnosed with just symptoms and manipulation from my family doctor. I have not had any imaging done to confirm the diagnosis. Now the pain goes from my hip and stops just above the knee. The pain can become so severe if I’m sitting or moving on a hard surface. It does hurt when I’m walking, but mostly starts when I’m sitting. Thank you very much.

  34. Hey Bob and Brad when I lie on my back and pull 1 of my knee to shoulder, i couldn’t pull it completely and there would be a crack sound in my hip, and also my toe will move towards my another leg

  35. thanx for all the good informations.. i have a problem and no doctor in my country can relieve my pain .. i have hip pain, and the pain goes up to my back ..firstly doctors said u got coxyx problem, it was bent .. i had surgery and cut part of my coccyx.but i still have pain , more and more .. actually now doctors say u have nerve inflammation in ur hips… i don’t really know what am i suppose to do ???? thanx if help

  36. I noticed pain in my left groin area while on a trip to WY. We were walking around and standing still and I noticed pain in my groin area. I only notice it after standing. But it is like I can't even life my foot step up or get into the car… 🙁 I thought it was maybe the way I sat on the flight…

  37. Extreme Hip pain gone instantly. I believe it. I do this for a living except I don't have a machine. By simple tabs you can heal. People rather believe in machines so here it is. thanks.

  38. You mentioned not doing this pulling with a total hip replacement, but my therapist does this to my hips when i have a treatment. Why do you mention not doing this with total hip replacement?

  39. After months of pain in my left buttock/hip, an MRI showed bursitis but my sciatic nerve feels compressed in my glute. It is a deep throbbing pain with tingling at times going down the leg, especially when I wake up. Nothing I do gives me relief. I've tried stretching, rest, ice applications, ibuprofen regularly, etc, but the pain persists. I'm not sure what else to do.

  40. I’ve been told I’ve got arthritis in both hips as I’ve had pain in both since May this year. Had X-ray which confirmed this I’m 59 yrs

  41. Im 20 years old. I suffering from a hip pain that seem to improve when i walk but worsens when i sit or do exercise like leg streching or swimming breaststroke. It started 1 year ago when i was in the library when i felt a strong dull ache and ever since it comes and go with certain activity,now i feel a slight jolt of pain on my left calf too…im out of wits on what to do,mri is fuqin expensive. I checked for si joint,femor problems etc. Exercises and bullshit but to no avail…

  42. After having a Brain Tumor removed IAM doing fine but.. one of my legs are shorter than the other. This is new to me. What kinda exercise can I do. Iam seeing a Chiropractor and I will be making an appointment with an orthopedic. What am I to do
