Lateral Hip Pain. Side Stepping. Take a strong sideways step, back and forth. Try to avoid stepping back too close to the
other foot if possible. Isometric Hip Abduction. Lying on your back with your knees slightly
wider than hip width apart. Place a pillow under the knees and a belt
or scarf around the lower thighs. Slowly and gently start to move your knees
apart, until the slack has been taken up. Try and hold this for 10 to 15 seconds and
you can repeat this 10 times. Glutes Bridge. Lie on your back with the knees bent. Slowly lift your bottom off the floor, while contracting your glutes and then return
to the starting position. Offset bridge. You can progress this by sliding your unaffected
leg slightly forwards. Aim to lift your bottom off the floor with
emphasis on using the affected leg to do most of the work. Squat. Stand with equal weight through both legs. Bend at the hips and knees and push your bottom
backwards. Lower yourself down as if you were going to
sit down. Start with a quarter squat and gradually increase
the distance. Hip Abduction Side Lying. Lying on your good side with a pillow placed
in between your knees. Keep your top leg straight and in line with
your body. Aim to lift this leg one to two centimetres
away from the pillow and hold.
