Hip Tip

January 14, 2019

Are you in the habit of standing on one hip? Unless you have a medical reason for doing so, you should definitely try to stop!

 

If you stand in this crooked way, your weight, instead of being transferred efficiently through your bones, ends up hanging from your tendons.

 

In the long run this won’t be very good for your hips. Also, your upper body will need to twist to compensate for the imbalance, and this will inevitably lead to other problems.

 

Below are images of women holding toddlers on their hips. The woman on the right is absorbing the extra weight with minimal disruption to her own posture. The woman on the left is not.

 

Sometimes it may be quick and convenient to carry something in this way. However, if you are carrying something regularly, or for any length of time, it is far better to find a solution which distributes the weight evenly rather than always on the same side. Ideally, you would carry the weight on your back or shoulders.

 

Handbags, satchels, briefcases, children - if you’re not careful, the way you carry them could create harmful muscular habits.
