Our bodies are amazing machines that are designed to move.
Unfortunately, our lifestyles, and the way we move our bodies often contributes to tight hips.
Over time, the hip muscles that join your abdomen to your legs become tight, upsetting the muscles and structures both above and below the hips. Hence why knee problems, lower back pain, and even shoulder and neck pain are often connected to tension in the hips.
Running and cycling can also result in tight hips due to the repeated use of the hip flexors to lift the leg to propel you forward.
