We will discuss everything about the hip flexors, how they work and why they can cause pain in some cases.
So what are those ‘’hip flexors’’?
The hip flexors are the main muscles in the hip area. As the name says (flexors) they can flex the hip. This enables us to rotate our legs from the hip area and many more things. The hip flexors are being used daily and can easily be fatigued.
Most of the hip flexor injuries come from the fact that the hip flexors are being used to much which cause them to get ‘’exhausted’’, this is generally the case when your hip flexors aren’t strong enough for the kind of work they have to do each day. You can either choose a more easy-going lifestyle or, you can make the hip flexors stronger with some exercises which you can find on this blog.
Another reason why a lot of people suffer from hip flexor injuries is because their hips are to tight. This means that the hip flexors are ‘’cramped’’ all day which causes them to get exhausted easily. A good way to loosen up the hip area is doing some basic hip stretches which you can find on this blog too.
So what should you do when you regularly suffer from a hip flexor injury? First of all, I recommend seeing a doctor before you try anything on this website. I know what I’m talking about when I give you these tips but just to be sure, you should go and see a doctor. The best way to avoid a hip flexor injury is to make them stronger and more flexible, that’s all there is to it. You might not notice a change after the first week. But two weeks of doing some exercises, and you should start seeing some positive changes.
