Hip pain is a common issue amongst most adults – irrespective of age, health or fitness level. In fact some of the back and leg issues we have are also related to our hips.
Unlike most other joints, the hip needs to recruit and coordinate four sides ..all of which are major muscle groups-- in order to move These are hamstrings quads, glutes, and abdominals. Our bodies naturally try to compensate for a weakness or imbalance in any of these by relying on the “strongest member of the group”. This leads not only to instability in the hip and pelvis but also very often to over extension which causes pain in the hips and other parts of the body.
Our Healthy Hips class focuses on hip mobility and correct muscle recruitment. This not only protects the joint, but also significantly reduces or eliminates the associated pain.
This class is suitable for those who have had hip replacements, those who are preparing for or concerned about future hip replacements and those of us who end up with pain in our hips or back because of the tightness of this joint.
