Alexa, a sports massage therapist and hip dysplasia patient from the UK, shares techniques for stretching muscles that often become tight in individuals with hip dysplasia.  These are wonderful exercises that can be done if you are managing hip dysplasia conservatively or if you awaiting surgery, recovering from surgery, or looking to maintain life-long healthy hips.  As always, if you are under the care of a hip surgeon, physical therapist, or other healthcare provider, it is important to discuss whether or not these stretches would be appropriate for you before starting a regular home stretching program.
