Hip flexor pain

January 12, 2014

Deena asked The Guru for the following Physiotherapy Advice:

Dear Guru,

Is yoga good for hip flexor pain? Or should I avoid stretching it? What would you recommend as the best exercise?

Hi Denna

….All depends on what yoga pose you’re doing!

Personally I think if you’ve got a painful hip flexor you need to discover why it’s painful. Stretching it has a 50/50 chance of helping….
