Abi, one of our Sports Therapists, demonstrates a 'clam shell'. This exercise works the glute medius - one of the gluteal muscles really important for hip stabilisation.
This exercise is good for:
- hip stability
- hip and knee strength
- to prevent fatigue when walking
Caution: do not continue with the exercise if you get any pain and contact a health professional for advice.
If you feel you would benefit from seeing Abi for either Sports Therapy or for a Sports/Deep Tissue Massage you can contact us and we would be happy to schedule you an appointment. Note: you do not have to be 'sporty' to benefit from a Deep Tissue Massage.
Deep Tissue Massages offer benefits including:
- Releases muscle tension
- Improves range of motiion or movement
- Increases circulation/improve blood flow
- Helps with chronic pain, stress and/or tension.
