Chronic Hip Pain Strain- Forward Lunge Reach Ups

Chronic Hip Pain Strain- Forward Lunge Reach Ups


Progressively strengthening your core stability
muscles after a hip injury can help you become functionally stronger. Start by lunging forward with your right foot
and reaching up with the opposite arm and hand high up above your head while keeping
the low back in neutral position. When you lunge forward make sure your knee
stays over your ankle and aligned with your second toe, hip and shoulder and that the
low back doesn’t arch. Don’t let your knee fall into the middle
or go past the front of your toes and the opposite arm reaching straight up without
deviating past the midline or off to the side. Push back up to the start with the forward
foot and repeat this for 10 repetitions doing 3 sets for each side. This exercise is great for returning to activities
and sports that require a lunge and reaching motion. If you’re unsure about the exercise or have
uncertainty about where you’re at with your hip book an appointment and have one of our
Physiotherapists at either our North Burnaby or Vancouver locations to check things out.
