If you’ve had a hip injury or surgery, Standing hip abduction is a simple way to get your hip strength and mobility back.

To perform standing hip abduction:

  1. Keep your upper body straight, and try not to swing your body.

  2. Keep your knee straight and pull your toes up towards you. Bring your leg out to the side leading with your heel, and slowly come back down.
