Your hips are the center of movement for your body, so the healthier and less restricted your hips become, the more potential your body has for strength, power, and athleticism.
At R2P, we treat patients suffering from a wide range of issues from low back aches to knee pain, to being unable to tie their shoes and sit down. Quite a lot of them had one thing in common—they weren’t able to move their hips well.
Improving your hip mobility leads to decreasing the strain on their low backs and knees, making their walking, stair climbing, and running gait more efficient, and creating more ease in their daily activities such as getting in/out of car, on/off the floor, and even being able to tolerate long drives in their cars.
Tight hips have probably gotten in the way of your daily activities or exercise goals countless times. And that’s really why hip mobility is so important—because when it’s missing, your options become a lot more limited.
The hips are connected to every part of the body, and when they’re not moving well, there’s a chain reaction of restriction. You can’t squat easily, your hamstrings start to feel tight, maybe you compensate with certain movements when you walk which causes your back to start tightening up—and so on and so forth.
At R2P, we want you to be able to Perform the activities you love to do, free from pain and restrictions. And that might not be possible if tight hips are getting in your way.
