Hip Mobility: 7-Way Hip Strengthening

In this video, Dr. Nwachukwu focuses on strengthening of the hip muscles.

Here are the 7-way hip stretches and benefits. Hip mobility is essential to the proper full functioning of the hip joint.

Some of his favorite exercises and stretches include:

  • Hip abduction
  • Hip flexion
  • Hip extension
  • Flexion / Extension C
  • Circles forward and backward
  • Bicycles

Mobility training can improve the range of motion of our joints and muscles. It can assist in improving our posture. Mobility training can alleviate ‘everyday’ aches and pains as well as improve our body awareness. Think of mobility as the range of uninhibited motion around the joint. A good level of mobility allows a person to perform movements without restriction, while a person with good flexibility may not have the strength, coordination, or balance to execute the same movement.

7-Way Hip Strengthening is a great exercise for the following conditions:
