But the importance of hip mobility isn’t just for the sake of your hips themselves.

Tight hips can lead to a domino effect of other body pain hotspots and even injuries. The problem from sitting for long periods of time can manifest as pain in the back, hip, or knee.

The hip flexors actually originate in the lower back, so when they get tight, it can place stress on the lumbar spine. Or you could experience pain in the front of your hip, either from muscle shortening or a pinching feeling from the rim around the hip joint socket.

Hip Flexors Anatomy

The hip muscles encompass many muscles of the hip and thigh whose main function is to act on the thigh at the hip joint and stabilize the pelvis. Without them, walking would be impossible. They can be divided into three main groups:

  • Iliopsoas group
  • Gluteal muscles
  • Hip adductors

The hip flexors and extensors have to work together to maintain a neutral pelvis and allow a powerful and safe range of motion through the hip. But natural hip extension movements used in daily life aren’t challenging enough to keep the glutes and hamstrings strong.
