Stretching your hip flexors is very important for managing low back, hip and knee pain. However, this stretch is frequently performed incorrectly. Follow these rules and you will maximally stretch the hip flexor instead of the hip capsule:
- First, you want to make sure to tuck your pelvic under.
- Second, you want to rock your body forward until you feel a good stretch across the front of you hip.
- Do not lean your trunk forward or push your hip towards the ground.
