Hip Flexor Stretch & Exercise Program – 2020
Chronic tight hip flexors can wreak havoc on your body in many different ways if not taken care of. They cause imbalances in the body that lead to discomfort manifesting in your back, neck, and even your lower extremities. Often, people assume that a basic hip flexor stretch, or two, will fix the problem, and, while it may give you some relief in the short term, it’s not correcting the underlying issue.
Stretching won’t do anything because the muscles are weak. Typically, tight flexors come from sedentary lifestyles but this isn’t always the case. You can be quite active but your job might require you to sit for long periods. Previous injuries or favoring one side of your body to sleep on can also cause tight hip flexors.
If unchecked, chronic tight hip flexors can lead to bad posture, compromised immune systems, loss of sexual performance, sleeping issues, and ultimately a physical injury.
Tight Hip Flexor Stretch & Exercise Program
In the same way that one would go to a Personal Trainer for an exercise program or a Nutritionist for a healthy diet, you need a Hip Flexor Stretch and Exercise Program. For individuals with chronic hip flexor tightness, basic stretches and rolling around on tennis balls and foam rollers are not going to cut it. The cause of your issue is your Psoas, a muscle group connecting your lower and upper extremities and difficult to reach – This is where the Unlock Your Hip Flexors program comes in.
I’ve been a certified personal trainer for years, and I have also suffered from chronic tight hip flexors. It did not happen because I was sedentary, I managed Fitness Clubs where I was on my feet all day and worked out religiously. It happened because I did not pay enough attention to those deep core muscles like I should have – they just are not fun to work on.
I thought I could fix the issue myself by stretching but soon realized that stretching the wrong muscle or stretching muscles out of sequence made the issue worse. As I continued my static stretching and religious workout routines, I ultimately ended up with an injury that took me a little over a year to come back from with the help of a Chiropractor and the Unlock Your Hip Flexor program.
