Therapeutic Yoga is a great way to help relieve hip pain by incorporating physical therapy and yoga. It focuses on gentle yoga or modification poses with breathing techniques. Trudy, a fellow PT and registered yoga teacher from HEAL Wellness and Therapy, stopped by to guide me through some stretches and exercises for the hip.
The first pose is to help mobilize the hip joint. This is not only a great stretch, but it also helps free up the hip joint when it is tight and painful.
Next is a psoas (hip flexor) stretch with glute muscle activation. This helps the muscles work together for a more mobile and stable hip joint.
Finally, we will stretch the hip capsule. This is another great way to get the hip joint moving and loosened up.
