Prevent Hockey Hip Injuries With These 3 Movements
Did you know that 9 out of 10 hip injuries in hockey occur when there's no contact with an opponent, and that these types of injuries are steadily on the rise?
It's interesting to note that during the past two seasons that I have worked with 120+ junior, college and pro hockey players, we have had very few non-contact injuries to the groin and abdominal area.
A couple of guys have complained about tightness and/or something not "feeling right" down there only now and then, and these minor incidents can be counted with the fingers of my left hand.
More importantly, man-games lost to these issues are a whopping 0 over the course of two years.
So even if I say so myself, our off-ice training program has been extremely effective in keeping guys healthy and on the ice - in addition to getting them strong.
