Lower Body Exercises: Hip Flexor

This exercise stretches and strengthens your lower body to help your back. Do the exercise as often as suggested by your healthcare provider. As you work out, don't rush or strain. Use an exercise mat, pillow, or folded towel to protect your knees and other sensitive areas.

  • Kneel on the floor. Put one foot on the floor in front of you, with the knee slightly bent. If you need to, hold on to a chair for balance. Tighten your abdomen.

  • Move your hips forward, keeping your back and shoulders upright. Feel the stretch in the front of your hip.

  • Hold for 20 seconds. Return to starting position.

  • Repeat 2 times. Switch sides.
