Common Causes of Tightness in the Hips
The reasons behind tight hips aren’t always clear. However, tight
hips typically stem from weak hip flexors and weak, under-utilized muscles
in the surrounding areas. Sitting down for hours on end can also contribute
to hip tightness by causing them to contract for prolonged amounts of
time. This can cause the hip flexor muscles to become shorter, tighter,
and less able to move as they ought.
Negative Effects of Tight Hips
When your hip flexors and strained and tight, it can have negative effects
on your posture and create various secondary issues. Tight hips can cause
your back to become stiff and push your pelvis forward, causing a painful
posture abnormality called
anterior pelvic tilt.
It can also cause
poor circulation in your legs, which can weaken the muscles, bones, and connective tissues
therein, making you more prone to injury and discomfort.
