The BEST Hip Flexor Exercises (Physical Therapy)

In today's episode we go over The BEST Hip Flexor Exercises (Physical Therapy)

As physical therapists, it's crucial to understand the importance of choosing the right hip flexor exercise for our patients. The hip flexor muscles play a vital role in stabilizing the front of the hip and are very active during regular activities and when training in the gym. 

If you have a patient with a highly irritated hip (hip flexor strain, femoral acetabular impingement syndrome) or a post-op hip surgery patient (Labral repair, joint replacement) it's very important to be able to pick very low stress exercises to train the hip flexors while simultaneously respecting the healing surgical or injury site.

As our patients progress we also need to know the appropriate advancement and how to progress over time.  In today's video we go over exactly how I like to do this an go over some of my favorite exercises from easy to hard.  Check out the video below:
