Hips

HOW ARE YOUR HIPS FEELNG? The lifetime risk of symptomatic hip arthritis is 1 in 4. Not only that, the risk of EARLY hip arthritis (45-50 yo) is 1 in 20 (Murphy et al). It's not a surprise that in the last 2-3 decades, there continues to be a significant rise in the number of hip replacements ( Kurtz et al). Let's NOT be a statistic.

  • Decreased hip mobility is a leading cause of low back pain and dysfunction.

  • Decreased hip mobility is a major cause of knee pain and degeneration.

  • Movement is the only thing that nourishes articular cartilage and maintains joint health.

  • MOVE YOUR JOINTS EVERY DAY!

The hip program is giving me back some hip opening and pain free time where the more traditional stretches and moves I was doing by myself weren't. Please try it! The difference to my on and off, but now very tight glut and hip flexors is significant. Thank you!

Have just completed my first hip KINSTRETCH mobility routine and wish I had discovered this about 10 years ago. Its easy to follow and there is so much to learn. I know that my hips are going to thank me for this and for finding your website during lockdown here in the UK. Have already recommended it to family and friends.

Wow, I teach movement and consider myself very fit and aware of my movement patterns and dysfunctions. Despite the fact that my left hip has bene niggling for a long time, I just have not taken the time to do the work. Very good at teaching other what to do and neglecting myself. I found Michelle on Instagram, and instantly loved her way of teaching! She has a similar background to mine so I was intrigued about her classes. And wow, did she not disappoint. Kinstretch mobility routine is one of the THE best classes I have ever done, boy did I work hard. My legs are still shaking :) Thank you Michelle, you are a great teacher! I would recommend this class to anyone. Just remember, listen up her detailed cueing and give your best effort!

my story

I believe MOVEMENT is the the best therapy and our most powerful tool. I am a self proclaimed “movement science geek” and my mission is to bring you high quality movement videos so you can begin your journey of FEELING GOOD and REACHING YOUR PHYSICAL POTENTIAL. I have been a physiotherapist for over 20 years and have a clinical practice in North Vancouver where I use a combination of manual therapy, dry needling and movement. In addition, I am a clinical instructor at the University of British Columbia in the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Physical Therapy. Locally, I teach group KINSTRETCH classes and lead workshops for movement enthusiasts. I love teaching, am CONSTANTLY learning and am insanely curious about anatomy. All bodies and levels are welcome. I hope to see you soon!
