Hip instability and pain is common for anyone who sits in one place for long periods of time, as lack of mobility contributes to stiffness and discomfort. Try our top three unable hip exercises to build strength and flexibility, and get back to enjoying your favorite everyday activities.
Your hips are a ball-and-socket joint, so moving them in a circular motion is one of the best unstable hip exercises. For extra stability, have a chair or countertop near by to hang onto.
This full-body active stretch is great for loosening up the hamstrings and quads, as well as addressing hip instability.
As you build flexibility, try touching your opposite hand with your opposite toe to deepen the stretch.
Not only do clamshells help work on hip stability, they also build strength in your thighs, glutes, and pelvic muscles. This unstable hip exercise also helps relieve pressure in your back.
For an extra challenge, try sliding a resistance band up around your thighs. This will strengthen your muscles while deepening the stretch.
If you are dealing with hip instability issues, physical therapy is a great way to rebuild. Request an appointment to get in touch with our team and begin your tailored treatment plan today.
