Pilates Single Leg Shoulder Bridge - Best Exercise for Stabilising the Hips

Updated: Jan 6, 2021

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 using glute med the Pilates Single Leg Shoulder Bridge stabilises the pelvis by strengthening the hips and lower back in alignment.

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.
