Hip Mobility Exercise


Improving hip flexion is essential for many daily activities such as squatting, stair climbing, and getting in/out of a car. Stiffness or “tightness” in the hips can impede your ability to perform these movements with ease. Try these movements to address hip flexion limitations in different planes of motion.


Tips:

✳️ Simple alternatives to a box are using the stairs, chair or couch.

✳️ Start with 3-4 rounds per side.

✳️ Keep movement focused on the hip and minimize flexing from the trunk.


Recommendation:

💡While these can help in the short-term, it always helps to seek out a PT to find out why the stiffness/“tightness” in the hips is recurrent and get a long-term solution!
