This is a continuation of one of my previous articles on Runner’s knee pain treatment. I discuss more hip strengthening exercises for patellofemoral pain or Runner’s knee pain.
More Hip And Core Strengthening Exercises
Below I am demonstrating single leg bridging with opposite
leg lift. Have to make sure you keep the pelvis leveled.
Single leg bridging Instructions
Squeeze the glutes and make those abs hard…
You need a lot of core strength, hip and leg strength to
do this exercise properly.
Bridging on exercise ball with legs straight.
…this is a great way to strengthen the hip and core muscles.
Core muscles are another important piece of the puzzle most
people neglect when recovering from a knee injury.
“Unless the base or center is strong and stable, the extensions
cannot function properly…so very important to strengthen the core”
Instructions: Place your feet on the ball and bridge up without arching back
Remember to really tighten up the gluteal muscles and abdominals when doing this exercise.
