Exercises for the Hip
f you suffer from hip pain, Pilates is an excellent way to remedy discomfort.

While it may be tempting to keep the area immobile, regularly practicing Pilates can decrease pain significantly. This is because the joint itself benefits from gentle yet deliberate movement.

This class shows some modified Pilates exercises that can be used to help with tight hips.
