Strong hips=Healthy life

Work those hip muscles!

I came across a cutting-edge, top-notch facility located in Calgary, Canada called the Running Injury Clinic (http://www.runninginjuryclinic.com/).   They have truly grasped the concept of the entire body contributing to health or injury of the individual.  They offer a lot of hip strengthening exercises, in which their studies reveals helps with knee pain. Furthermore, strong hip muscles direct the entire lower extremity and limit excessive motion which could cause injury, i.e., ankle or foot motion.  These types of exercises can be done by anyone, young and old, athletic or nonathletic. I am starting to incorporate these exercises as part of my protocol for anyone with stability issues or running-related overuse injuries.  Check them out at: http://www.runninginjuryclinic.com/Resources/hip-muscle-strengthening.html

Health and happiness!
