How to Improve Hip Stability

The hip joint is one of our most mobile joints in our body. It allows the movement of our lower extremity in all directions for complete mobility and plays a major role in walking, running, jumping, sitting, lifting, and many more! With all that mobility though we need STABILITY in order to safely perform all these movements. 🚶‍♂️

The Clam Shell is a simple exercise that targets the hip stabilizer muscles. When performing this it is important to make sure your posturally setup correct: 💪

Lie in a side lying position Hips are stacked one on top of the other Knees are bent to approximately 90 degrees Use a pillow under your head to keep your head neutral At Empower Chiropractic we see hip instability as an issue for people with low back pain, hip pain, or radiating leg pain as well. We assess for hip stability by analyzing how you walk on your first visit and treat based on what we find to improve hip and lower back stability. Do this exercise 2-3 sets of 10-15 reps once a day. 🏃‍♀️
