Seated Hip Stretch

By Adelaide Women's Physio | May 25, 2016

When you feel some tightness or pain in the hip/buttock muscle area with:

  • long periods of sitting at a desk or in a car
  • going from sitting to standing

This easy stretch is worth trying.

  1. While in a seated position, cross your right leg over your straightened left leg.
  2. Hug your right knee with your left arm, making sure to keep your back straight.
  3. Hold this stretch for 30-60 seconds, and then repeat on the opposite side.
