Hip Mobility Exercises

 

Before starting, please remember to do these within your level of comfort.  Start slow!

Butterfly Stretch–Laying Down

Lie on your back with knees bent and place the bottom of your feet together.  Next, lower your knees to the side for a stretch to your inner thighs and opening your hips.

Lunge-Hip Flexor Stretch

While keeling, lean forward and bend your front knee until a stretch is felt along the front of the opposite hip.  Keep your torso/trunk upright.  Repeat on other side.

Piriformis Stretch

While lying on your back with both knees bent, cross right leg over your left knee.  Next, hold your left thigh and pull it up towards your chest until a stretch is felt in the buttock.  Repeat on other side.
