How to maintain hip joint health

 According to NIH, osteoarthritis is the most common arthritis among American people.  It is also very common in Japan.  Exercise is one of the best treatments for osteoarthritis,

To prevent hip joints stiffness and pain, we teach simple movements to increase flexibility, reenforce muscles, and help you maintain healthy weight.

1,  Sit on a chair.  You can relax your hip joint in the sitting position.

2.  Keep your back straight and pull your chin down naturally.  

     Do not tense your back, neither round it.

3.  Move your upper body back and forth as you bow.  

4.  Swing your upper body left and right.

5.  Turn your upper body clockwise and counterclockwise.  

To do exercise 3 to 5, do not bend from your waist and make sure your spine is straight.   If your hip joints are relaxed, your upper body can move like a spinning top.   

Wudang Qi gong and Kundalini Yoga trainings have similar exercise.  Their goal is to let spirit out from their body.  In order to do so, they need to relax every joint to get rid of the blockage in the meridians so the energy can go through.   

We recommend this turning body exercise for hip joint health.  It may help build muscles and keep your body in fit.  It helps blood and lymph circulations as you get rid of the stiffness.  Also helps prevent injury while you practice Taichi, hula dance, and other sports.
