Tight hips can reduce mobility throughout the entire body by pulling on legs, lower back and even shoulders. Your hip complex is a powerful group of muscles and nerves that supports your entire posture when you are sedentary and when you are moving.
Your lower and upper body connect at your hips through intricate fascial fabric and layering, supporting your entire body.
After long periods of sitting or standing muscle tightness can limit squat pattern depth, running stride, and even make sitting uncomfortable and painful. We often find a link in sitting and/or sleeping posture that contributes to hip pain and tightness.
When a Renew Movement™ Coach works on (creates more space/movement) your hips, the result is typically instant and you feel like you’re walking on air. You’ll be able to feel the immediate balance as your pelvic posture is more aligned. Renew Movement™ will make your hips feel brand new (or as close as possible), putting a little more pep in your step.
If your hip pain/tightness has been a long term, chronic issue, or stems for surgical intervention or acute injury, it’s possible your coach will suggest you sign up for a full Renew Evaluation to look for asymmetrical patterns, tightness and weakness that exist your movements. This tightness may be leading to chronic muscular immobility. Don’t let tight hips keep you from the movement your body is meant to have!
