Front Hip Stretch

Benefits of exercise:
  • Helps maintain or increase the length of the muscles at the front of the hip.

  • Maintain neutral spine movement throughout

  • Do not "bounce" stretch position – hold static position.

  • As you lean into your front leg, don’t let your knee move past your ankle. If it does, to correct this, move your front leg forward a little.

Repetition recommended:
  • Remission Patient: 4 reps each side and time, 1 time/day.

  • Flare Patient: 2 reps each side, hold for 20seconds each time, 3 times/day.

  • Option of performing stretch while standing in long stride
