Strengthening Your Hips To Prevent-Treat Injury


Posted by Dr. Scott Wilson | 27-Oct-2016

When we think of hip pain, we often think of a tightness or a lack of flexibility that restricts movement and leads to pain while performing specific functions.

As a ball and socket joint, our hips rely on a number of small muscles to provide the strength and stability needed for proper functioning. When these muscles are weak, the result is poor movement patterns (bio-mechanics) and increased stress on the surrounding muscles which creates stress, strains and general weakness that can even lead to injury.
