Hip Injury Management – Butterfly Hip Mobility

Do you have hip pain or stiffness? Do you play any running, cutting or lunging type of sports? If yes, then this might be a great exercise to help you improve your hip mobility.

Start by sitting down with the soles of your feet together drawing your heels as close to your body as possible. Make sure your lower back is nice and straight. Hold on to your ankles and feet with both hands and bend forward with your hips keeping the low back straight and push the knees to the floor with your elbows. Hold this for 30 seconds doing 3 sets 2x/day.

If you have pain that doesn’t feel like a stretch, or are unsure about what you’re doing consult a local physiotherapist before continuing.
