Hip mobility refers to the range of motion and flexibility in the hip joints. It is a critical aspect of overall movement and functionality, as the hips play a significant role in various activities, such as walking, running, squatting, and even sitting.
Good hip mobility allows for smooth and efficient movement, reduces the risk of injury, and enhances performance in sports and daily activities. On the other hand, poor hip mobility can lead to issues like lower back pain, hip pain, and limited range of motion in the legs.
Factors that can contribute to limited hip mobility include sedentary lifestyles, muscle imbalances, tightness in surrounding muscles (such as the hip flexors, glutes, and hamstrings), and previous injuries.
Improving hip mobility can be achieved through various exercises and stretches that target the hip joint and surrounding muscles.
