Hi, my name is Seth Hampton, the movement master, and I'm going to be demonstrating hip range of motion exercises for arthritis pain relief. One of the most important things with the hip is to draw synovial fluid and get it nice and lubricated, especially for arthritis pain. So, a very simple, remedial exercise we're going to do. I'm lying on the floor, and I'm propped up on my elbows. You can also take a pillow and put it under your hip or AIS joint for comfort. Make sure you're in a comfortable position, and just start with one leg bending in, right up to about a 90 degree, no further than that, right about to here. And, the movement is simply to sway the leg out, and sway the leg in, focusing on the depth of that hip joint in there. And, just feel it being lubricated just by this motion alone. As we sway out, this is internal rotation. We sway in, it's external rotation. So, you'll start with maybe about again five to six reps, very easy, and build your way up to a little bit more. Complete under the same series on the other side. Everybody's a little bit more flexible than some people. Some people have further range of motion to go down, some have further range of motion to go out. It all depends on the individual. So, just go easy, always monitor your comfort zone, too.
