Hip Mobility Test • Sit on the ground with your legs straight out.
• Cross one ankle above the other knee cross legged in a figure 4 position. • Keep your ankle pressed on the other leg, but now lower the raised knee to the side. Does it lower close to the ground? • Repeat on the other side and see if there is a difference. • This might indicate a hip motion problem and cause pain in the back or hip discomfort on that side.
