Your hips are some of the most important joints and muscles in your body. They support your pelvis and core in order to create a strong foundation for your extremities to move. If your hip muscles are restricted and cannot do their job properly, this strong foundation ceases to exist and your body has to compensate in other ways, causing pain and discomfort. If you’ve noticed pain or tightness in your hips, it’s important that you seek help, as it can have an overall negative effect on your quality of life. So what can you do? This week’s Invincible blog discusses some important ways to help improve your hip function. Invincible specializes in movement education and healing.

The Basics of Hip Function

Your hip function is affected by intestine mobility, which is affected by your posture. Did you know that your small intestines need to move well in order for your hips to move well? These areas of your body are so interconnected that any type of small intestine issue will also affect your hips. So, any hip issues can affect your digestion! Our team at Invincible has developed an Organ Healing Guide on ways to start improving movement in the area, so you can work to optimize your hip function right at home!

Hip Function and Your Sitting Posture

Your sitting posture is important for many reasons, but especially when it comes to your hip function and small intestine health. Depending on the way we sit, our hips may be more or less tight. We aim to help you position yourself in a way that allows for easy, efficient digestion, rather than strained, compressed digestion. A slouched position adds extra strain to the hip muscles, increasing both tightness and weakness in specific areas. It also reduces diaphragm function, limiting the movement needed by the small intestines to function well.
