The base for most of our body’s movement comes from your hips and the muscles that surround them. Think about those instances where you are walking up stairs or bending over to pick up a child. Hip strength and mobility is one of the keys to, not only good performance, but comfort during day to day activities.
Our hips can become less functional due to injury or become stiff due to prolonged positioning. Sit at a computer all day with little movement? That can stiffen your hips and allow them to become weaker.
If you’re in an occupation that requires a lot of bending, such as a gardener or landscaper, here’s an exercise for strengthening your hips and improving mobility from Nova Medical Centers‘ Dr. Kevin Dang.
Our team of highly skilled, licensed physical therapy staff utilize the most current clinical evidence to apply a one on one, sports therapy approach to providing care; resulting in a safer, smarter, and stronger workforce.
Our industry leading physical therapy program follows applicable federal, state, and trade association compliance guidelines. Patients Receive 1 to 1 Care. Unlike many of our competitors, Nova provides direct one-to-one patient care as defined by the American Medical Association. This means Nova patients don’t share their individual therapy time with multiple patients. When a single patient is a therapist’s only focus, patients get better faster and return to work sooner.
