Glute Med Leg Raise - Best Exercise For Stabilising The Hips

The main muscle that helps to stabilise the hip is Gluteus Medius. Glute Med is responsible for keeping the pelvis in position when standing on one leg and walking. When glute med is weak or not functioning correctly it can cause you to swing or rotate into your hip joint when you're walking or standing on one leg. This instability can cause lower back pain because of misalignment, so there can be referred pain down the leg as the body will compensate by using other muscles to stabilise. By focusing on the angle of your foot in this version of the Pilates Leg Raise you can activate glute med.

I am currently offering online Pilates classes and online Pilates Personal Training via Zoom. I can help with injury rehabilitation, pain relief, postural alignment and general fitness.

Please get in touch for details.
