Buy Stiff Hip WorksheetStiff and tight hips can be caused by many things including arthritis, an injury & overuse. When the hips tighten up, it can also lead to low back pain and/or knee pain. These stiff hip stretches may provide relief.

Pelvic tilts and a single knee to chest stretches are a great way to start to loosen up the hips as well as the low back.

Next using a strap to stretch helps to relax the back and other muscles, which can lead to stiff hips if they are tight. Hamstring stretch with a strap, IT band stretch with a strap, and a sidelying quad stretch will help loosen up your hips, knees, and back.

Then a supine butterfly stretch, cat/cow or cat/dog stretch, and a lunge stretch with a pelvic tilt will get the muscles all around the hip.

Finally, seated hip piriformis stretches in figure four and with the knee to opposite shoulder will stretch the piriformis muscle as well as the gluteus muscles.
