Find yourself trying to stretch out your hip throughout the day?
Are you limping when you get up in the morning?
Do you just have a sore hip?
This could be why...
Pain on the outside aspect of the hip is an issue lots of us grapple with. Often thought to be due to weak gluteal muscles, people jump into squats, clams, or glute bridges. If you look a bit closer, you will find a tricky little muscle that can often be the actual cause of your pain.
Its name is Tensor Fasciae Latae (TFL).
This little muscle helps with walking, sitting, standing, bending, lifting, pretty much everything. It does ALOT given its relatively small size. With everything it's involved in we're using it almost all the time, but it often gets left out of recovery routines.
So what can you do?
Here are two of our Osteopaths Tom & Ben demonstrating some handy exercises to help improve your hip strength and give your TFL a much-needed rest.
