Hip strengthening exercises are one of the most important things we can do to stay mobile and independent as we age.
Why is it so necessary to focus on this part of the body?
For starters, I think all of us can agree we’d like to avoid a hip replacement.
But there are many other benefits.
Why Do Hip Strengthening Exercises
We want to avoid or slow down the damage of osteopenia or osteoporosis.
By stretching and strengthening the muscles around the hips, we build stability to help with balance and avoid falls.
And should we fall, we want strong muscles to protect our hip joints like a mighty barrier.
Because your hips controls the alignment of your knees, weakness in this area may contribute to knee pain.
Getting motion in the hip area can help with pain and stiffness that comes with arthritis.
The ability to move is much easier with strength and flexibility of that ball and socket.
So let’s get out of that chair and off those bottoms and work on these hip strengthening exercises together.
