Hip Abduction Strengthening with a Therapy Band
These exercises should only be performed after evaluation by a qualified medical professional and under their instruction. Should you experience pain or discomfort while doing an exercise, stop immediately.
Securely attach the ends of a therapy band around each of your feet. Lie on your right side on an exercise mat. Your head is supported by your right arm. Your left elbow is bent and your left hand is placed on the mat, stabilizing your position. Your left foot rests on your right foot and your legs are straight.
Next, lift your left leg upward to about 45 degrees. You'll feel the muscular contraction in the outside of your left upper thigh and hip. Relax and return to the starting position.
