The hips are the center of your body. They connect the lower body and the upper body to work as a unity. They provide stability, strength and flexibility to both halves. Misaligned hips will cause you a lot of troubles – pain in your low back, knees, shoulders or ankles, and possibly create some more serious future injuries. If your hips are not properly aligned, your movement pattern is not correct and thus your joins are exposed to extra forces and frictions, especially on the hard, concrete courts of Los Angeles. It is extremely important to take a good care of your hips to keep them strong, flexible and properly aligned.
