Hip Stretch Deep Dive

Stretching is the most effective conservative at-home treatment for the management of hip pain. We encourage our community to seek medical intervention if the pain is severe but we also recognize that sometimes at-home treatment is preferable. Additionally if you experience pain while performing these stretches please discontinue at-home treatment and give us a call immediately. 

The following twelve stretches have their roots in yoga and stretch not only the hip area but also the legs and back. For the full article, pictures of each stretch, and credit please click the link below.
