How to Do Stretching the Hip Flexors on the Side

You may need to explore different hip positions to find tight areas.

Each side lying hip flexor stretch should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop this side lying hip flexor stretch.


Beginning Stretching the Hip Flexors on the Side

To get into position lay down on your side. Then move your lower leg forward and allow a bend in your knee to stabilize yourself, then bring your top leg behind your back, and grasp it with your top hand.


Stretching the Hip Flexors on the Side Movement

1. To begin the stretch start to push your hips forward while holding onto your top leg, once you feel a stretch stop and hold that position for 20-30 seconds.

2. Repeat the stretch 2-3 times then switch sides.


Stretching the Hip Flexors on the Side Benefits

A hip flexor strain can be mildly uncomfortable or severe enough to cause difficulty walking, muscle spasms, and severe pain. Stretching on a regular basis can help keep your hip flexors loose and prevent injuries.
