Best Hip Flexor Stretch

Hip Flexor Stretch

We show our patients hip flexor stretches on a regular basis.  People sit at computers all day and these babies get tight!  Plus, we know from a recent study in the International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy (Mills et al, IJSPT 2015) that hip tightness can inhibit your gluteal function.  Tight hip flexors are a culprit for a myriad of problems that we see.  Unfortunately, many people stretch them incorrectly or are taught the wrong way.  Check out our YouTube clip on how to do a hip flexor stretch correctly, as well as how we commonly see it performed incorrectly.
Whether you need a good hip flexor stretch, have an injury, or recently had surgery, it would be a privilege to serve you and partner with you in your care should the need for physical therapy arise.  We have locations in Overland Park and Prairie Village to serve you.  Remember, you can see a PT in Kansas without a physician referral.
