Four exercises to help strengthen and relieve hip and lower back pain

from WDRB Louisville

Sitting at a computer all day or simply not getting up to move can result in hip and lower back pain. But Carlos Rivas, the Director of Health and Wellbeing at Proformance, LLC says there are four exercises you can do to stretch and strengthen your hips and prevent injuries.

Exercising after injury or surgery will also help you return to daily activities and enjoy a healthier and active lifestyle. The hip flexors are the group of muscles that allow you to lift your knees toward your chest and bend forward from the hips.

Tight hip flexors are a common problem among those of us who spend a great deal of the day sitting at a work. When you spend a lot of time in a seated position, the hip flexors remain in a shortened position. Over time, the muscles surrounding the hips become tight and weak which can lead to pain and injury.

Tight hip flexors can result in lower back pain, hip pain and injury. A lot of strain is put on those muscles during activities that involve sprinting and kicking. For example, runners are more prone to hip flexor injuries because of the small, repetitive movement during running. But even if you're not an athlete, hip flexor injuries can occur during everyday activities (for example, slipping and falling or running to catch a bus). When those tight muscles are suddenly stretched beyond what they are accustomed to, you might also experience pain in the upper groin region, typically where the hip meets the pelvis. more
