When your hips are flexed in an unnatural position, this can cause fatigue and eventual pain around your hips. Marc Albano, a physical therapist at Sharp Grossmont Hospital’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Center, demonstrates three hip pain relief exercises: a hip flexor stretch, side lying clam and bridges. Before you start these hip stretches, consider consulting your physical therapist or doctor to see if these exercises are right for you.
