March: Clam Exercise
The clam exercise is good for hip, lower back and knee pain.
Lie on your right side with your right arm extended above your head. Your shoulders and hips should be in alignment with one another and there should be a little space underneath your waist. Maintain a neutral spine. Breathe in, as you breathe out apply a little pressure to the lower leg, lift your upper leg up and to abduct. Take a breathe in and drop your leg down. Remember to keep you hips and shoulders stabilised and in alignment.
Repeat this five times and then switch sides.
Always seek appropriate professional advice prior to any new exercise activity. If you experience any discomfort, please seek medical attention.
