Optimal Hip Alignment

    By Kelly Dean

    We have discussed the pelvis and the feet and knees but we also need to consider how we are positioning our hips in our daily postural habits. Sitting on one foot, collapsed crossing our legs, and resting into one hip are all common habits that place our hips in less than optimal alignments. Our body is capable of a variety of movements AND at the same time it craves consistent optimal alignment to keep everything moving as it was designed. Repetitive postures that place us in asymmetrical alignment can lead to muscle imbalance, restrictions and joint issues. Take a look at these resources and see how we can make some small changes so we have better hip alignment overall.
