This stretch is a great whole spinal stretch.
Your lower leg holds down the stick on one end bending over your lateral thigh above the knee.
Keep your dependent or lower arm straight and held to the floor.
Breathe in when reaching out and breathe out returning to start.
If you want to purchase a stick check out Stick Mobility. You can also buy 1 ¼ inch PVC pipe from Home Depot or Lowes at a fraction of the price. We wrapped our 6 foot pipe with hockey tape for grip and safety.
Dry needling is a great way to reduce hip pain due to muscle knots or trigger points.
