The Hip Hinge - bending to reduce back pain.
Move Better Monday time!
The Hip Hinge is a powerful way to avoid back pain, protect your spine, improve you hip mobility and take pressure out of your knees.
It looks so simple - but try it for yourself and you might be surprised at how hard it can be - especially if you are used to just bending through the spine or only with your knees.
You will find this movement will eventually come much more naturally with practice and provides you with a strong base for lifting - anything from grocery bags off the floor, to children or even weights.
If you are a back pain sufferer you will find this particularly useful in the mornings when your back is typically prone to being a little more restrictive.
