What is Hip Strategy?



A. Effective when CoG is near LOS perimeter and when LOS boundaries are contracted by narrower base of support
B. AIDS in control of motion through initiation of large and rapid motions at the hip with anti-phase rotation of ankle
C. Relied upon more heavily when somatosensory loss occurs and forward/backward perturbations are imposed or support surface lengths are altered
D. Shifts CoG by maintaining feet and rotating body at a rigid mass about the ankle joints
E. Gastrocnemius or tibialis anterior are responsible for torque production about ankle
F. Anterior/posterior sway is counteracted by gastrocnemius and tibialis anterior, respectively
G. Effective for slow CoG movements when base of support is firm and within LOS
H. Also effective when CoG is offset from center

If you would need to know what hip strategy is, you can choose the first three given choices. A, B, and C are the right answers. There are different strategies that the body has to follow so that it can maintain its balance. The first is the ankle strategy, second is the stepping strategy, and finally, the hip strategy.

If any of these strategies are not working well, then it will be harder for the person to stay up or to keep his balance. The hip strategy will allow you to keep your balance when you have a narrow base of support.

You can also make rapid hip movements with the anti-phase rotation of your ankle. This is also relied on heavily especially when you find yourself falling forward or backward.
