Hey everybody, it's DoctorJo and cool Kali, and today I'm, gonna show you my top 7 treatments

for hip tightness.

So let's get started.

So these stretches and exercises are for general tightness not after a specific surgery, so

make sure you are cleared to do these.

So the first one that I like to do just to get that tightness out of the hips is lying

down on the floor, and if you can't get down on the floor, you can do these in your bed

or on the couch.

And you're just gonna start off with the knee to chest stretch.

And it's just like it sounds.

I like to leave one side bent up, but some people keep it down, it's up to you.

I think this just takes a little pressure off your back if you've got some hip tightness,

you might have some back tightness as well.

So you're just gonna bring one knee up towards your chest.

If you have some knee issues, sometimes when people grab up here it's a little painful

on their knees to kind of push in to it, so you can grab under here if you have some knee


But just kind of pulling up towards you.

And you're gonna hold this for 30 seconds.

So getting that nice stretch in there.

It shouldn't be too painful, if you've got a little groin pain in there, just don't pull
