Anterior Hip Pain: Femoral Nerve Glides Sidelye

If you have a dull ache, tingling, loss of sensation in the front of your hip area or weakness into your knee, this exercise may help. 

Lie on your side with the affected hip on top. Have your low back in some extension at the start in the rest position. 

Then, flatten the lower back by reversing the extension and flex the knee by bringing the heel closer to the butt and extend the hip back while you extend the neck backwards. Then release with performing this continuous motion throughout the exercise. 

This will help mobilize the nervous system with an emphasis on the femoral nerve. Do this continuous movement for 60 seconds for 4 sets daily. If you have any pain during the exercise or are unsure about what you are doing, consult your local Physiotherapist before continuing.
