They asked me if this could be the result of sitting all day at work.
My answer was, “absolutely!”
Sitting can often lead to tightness in the hip flexors (the muscles in the front of the hips and pelvis) which then leads to pelvic tilts and potentially a cranky back.
In order to help counteract the hours of sitting we often do, stretching the hip flexors is really important.
In this video I show you a simple test to do, to see if your hip flexors are tight or not.
I also show you how to go about stretching the hip flexors without hurting your back (yes, technique is important with this stretch). There is one common mistake I see people make with this stretch that we should avoid.

P.S. This video works well with the hip stretch I showed in last week’s video. You can watch that one by clicking here
