How To Stop Snapping Hip SyndromeMar 19, 2020
Are your ab exercises causing snapping hip syndrome?
Believe it or not, this question gets asked a lot so I want to teach you how to prevent and correct this.
The main cause of hip popping for most women is lack of stability through their hips, pelvis and deep core.
To safely perform abdominal exercises and create a healthy connection through your deep core without hip popping, follow these steps:
- Start by connecting through the base of your pelvis and low belly.
- DO NOT jam your low belly into the mat.
- Before lifting your leg(s), connect through your deep core first.
- If you don’t, this puts unnecessary strain on your hip flexor.
- On your inhale, lower your leg down, only moving through a range of motion that feels good for your body.
- If you feel a pop or feel like your hips are sliding out of place, you’ve gone too far so make sure to shorten your range of motion.
- On your exhale, raise your leg up.
- Repeat 10x on each side.
These movements are AMAZING because they help to establish a stronger fascial connection throughout your body.
If you’re ready to add flexion, make sure you are connected through your core first and refrain from pulling on your neck or forcing the movement. Remember to only work through a range of motion that feels good for your body.
