🙌 Keeping with happy hips! 🙌

If you find you can complete those exercises in the previous post with ease why don’t you progress onto SIDE PLANKS!

Research has shown that the side plank is one of the best exercises to recruit the glute medius (one of the hip abductor muscles).
The bottom hip has to work hard to keep the position.

To progress this even further, hold the plank and add hip abduction with the top leg (bottom picture).
You can hold this position or lift the top leg up and down. This means you are strengthening both side of the hips at once!

🌎TODAY IS WORLD PT DAY!🌎

❗️This years theme is osteoarthritis (OA). The aim is to raise awareness of this condition and give people information and tools to help.

❓Did you know that OA is the leading cause of disability?
520 MILLION people around the world have OA. 
The knee is the most common joint to be affected. 

What is it?
OA is a disease where the joints and tissue in the body start to break down, this can be cartilage thinning, bone reshaping and joint inflammation. 
Despite these changes the joint can still work normally, however for many people OA is characterised by pain, weakness, stiffness, reduced quality of life. 

Risk Factors for OA:
🔹 Overweight
🔹Previous injury at the joint
🔹Overuse
🔹Family history.
🔹Increased risk with age.  

How can we help?
Exercise is a safe and recommended first line of management for people with OA. It has been shown to reduce pain, delay functional decline, and it may even help delay the need for a replacement. 

Is strength training safe?
YES! By strengthening the surrounding  muscle it can help take some of the load off the joint, having a somewhat protective effect! 

Is running safe? 
Generally YES! Evidence shows running is generally safe for joints. Furthermore some research suggests that those who run recreationally may have lower levels of knee/hip OA than those who do not engage in regular physical activity - so don’t be afraid of it!
