Many people experience pain in their back, hips and knees because they do not have adequate hip stabilization and strength. This exercise builds on the basic clam shell exercise by adding some resistance to the movement using an elastic exercise band. This variation will help to build strength and endurance the gluteus medius muscle group. Give this exercise a try if you have injured or are experiencing pain anywhere in the lower extremity chain (foot, ankle, knee, hip, pelvis or low back)
We always recommend talking to a qualified health professional such a Physiotherapist to ensure this exercise is right for your body. To book an appointment with one of our expert Physiotherapists in downtown Toronto, give us a call.
