Do you feel pain in your hip area and are you looking for a way to alleviate it? With these hip pain exercises, you can begin tackling the problem yourself.

If you have hip pain, the problem isn’t necessarily in the hip joint itself. It’s more commonly down to tightness and muscular imbalances in the structures around your hip. By means of targeted work on loosening and increasing your hip mobility, a hip stability exercises, you can eliminate the pain.

Your hip pain exercise program:
  • Myofascial self-massage
  • Triggering deep stress points
  • Mobilization and stretching exercises
  • Exercises for activation and strengthening
2-3 times a week

Do the exercises 2-3 times a week. If your pain is severe, you might not be able to manage all of the hip pain exercises. That’s okay! Do what you can, and take it slowly with trying out the exercises.

Get well soon!

You can also do the hip pain exercises as pain prevention.
