Anterior Hip Pain: Iliopsoas & Iliocppsularis Muscle Strengthening

Anterior hip pain could be the result of a weak hip flexor causing the joint to be impinged and move out of its dynamic stability in everyday use such as walking, running or sport. Begin by slouching forward on a bench or chair grabbing the back of your thigh with both hands. As you sit straight up again lift the knee towards your chest with the help of your hands. With your core stability muscles engaged, slowly lower the thigh to allow the foot to reach the floor as you release your hands. Repeat this 5 times on the affected hip for 3 sets. If you have pain during the exercise or are unsure about what you are doing, consult your local Physiotherapist before continuing.
