Hip pain can make it difficult to perform everyday activities. Here are three of my favorite hip stretches to help relieve hip pain and tightness.
Wide leg trunk rotation, seated figure 4, and seated hip flexor stretches are all simple stretches to get started. They can be done on a couch, bed, or on the floor. These should help loosen up tight hip muscles and relieve pain in the hip and low back area.
Stiff 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.
Hip osteoarthritis (OA) can cause pain in the hips, back & knees, and it can pain when walking. These are moderate hip osteoarthritis exercises, so if they are too difficult, check out my beginner hip osteoarthritis exercises.
