Keeping up with hip health

What can you do to avoid hip issues like these? A lot. Be sure to cross-train and break up repetitive patterns. When working on flexibility, make sure your effort is equal from side to side. Remember exercises such as the frog stretch—lie on the abdomen with the legs in second position; push up on forearms and tuck the pelvis. This gives equal pliability to the pectineus muscles at the very top of your inner thighs.

One great end-of-the-day pelvic balancer is the “constructive rest position” recommended by mind–body wellness pioneer Mabel Todd. Lie on your back with both legs bent at a 90-degree angle, feet flat on the floor. Tie the thighs together with something inelastic, like a yoga strap, to release the muscles. Stay and breathe for 5 to 10 minutes.
