A note about Useful Bursitis Hip Exercises

In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.

In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.

  • After lying on your back, one needs to bend the knees and rest the feet on the floor.

  • In this position, one must raise the injured leg and rest it over the other leg, just like one would cross one leg over the other while sitting on a chair.

  • This should be followed by grasping the uninjured leg just below the knee with both hands and pulling the knee towards the chest gently as much as possible.

  • Count to 15 and release.

  • This can be repeated two to three times before commencing the next exercise.

    Straight Leg Raising

    This is a relatively simple but very effective exercise for bursitis in the hips.

  • This, too, is performed by lying on the back.

  • Keep your legs straight while lying on your back.

  • Tighten the muscles of your upper thigh of the leg affected by bursitis.

  • Raise that leg without bending the knee straight up to about 6-8 inches above the ground.

  • The upper thigh muscle should not be released throughout the leg raise.

  • Slowly bring the leg back to the resting position on the ground.

  • Repeat three sets of 10 leg raises.

    This simple bursitis hip stretch and exercise can form a useful part of any hip bursitis treatment protocol. Consistently carried out over time, they can help improve one’s condition considerably.
