Stuart hinds explains the origins of the NAT Frozen shoulder and hip dysfunction technique

"The NAT Hip Treatment technique is a unique soft tissue therapy-based protocol developed to aid in unlocking the key restrictions in common altered movement pattern syndromes seen in hip joint dysfunction. It has been derived from the NAT shoulder technique. Three altered movement patterns have been identified and the treatment protocols are aimed at unlocking the three altered movement patterns.

It was whilst working at the London Olympics that this particular example of restriction / overload was most evident. Some of athletes would present with symptoms of lateral hip pain, non-specific bilateral lower back pain / stiffness and insentient hamstring tightness, on palpation excessive tension and sensitivity to the gluteus medius/minmus, consistent with chronic overloading, treatment to lower back tissues these areas were short lived. It became an ongoing cycle with continued overload and restriction.

However, once I starting assessing passive hip abduction, extension, internal rotation range of movement, there was a common pattern.”
