No. 6-b

After a short break, you need to do the same exercise, but in a dynamic manner. To do this, take the original position and lift the pelvis in the same way, but hang up at the top for 1-2 seconds, and then lower it down, but not until the end, but about 15 cm.

After that, again try to raise the pelvis as high as possible,point, and so on, until 12 to 15 such movements are done. Then, just as smoothly lower the pelvis on the floor and completely relax the muscles.

Then pull your body forward, as far as it turns out, and try to freeze in this position for two or three minutes, while relaxing your muscles as much as possible.

What if your ligament condition or natural flexibility does not allow you to reach your feet and fix it at the right time in this way? To do this, you need to use improvised materials: make, for example, a loop from the belt and put it on your feet so that one edge of the strap rests against them, and the other is in your hands. With the help of such a device, pulling the trunk forward will be much easier.

The main goal of this exercise is to be able to stretch the ligaments and muscles of the hip for a long time, several months, in such a way that the angle of the torso to the legs increases approximately by two times.

The starting position for the exercise is as follows: sit on the floor, leaning back against the wall, the back should be straight. Legs should be straightened and maximally moved apart.

To perform the exercise, start bending the aching leg in the knee joint, trying not to bring it close to the healthy leg, until you place the foot of the sick leg on the floor. Then very gently begin to press both hands on the knee of the sick leg, very soft and smooth, wiggling movements, try to tilt your leg inside, to maximum tension, but not pain!


This exercise can also be performed only in the initial stage of coxarthrosis!

The starting position is the same as in the previous exercise. Legs are straightened and maximally divorced. Carefully and slowly bend the aching leg in the knee joint, then grab her foot with your hands and begin to pull it very slowly towards yourself - until you feel maximum tension, but not pain!

When you reach the maximum approach, lock in this position and stay in it for one to two minutes, while trying to relax as much as possible. After this, very slowly return to the starting position and relax the muscles of the legs.

If the flexibility of your ligaments and muscles at the moment does not allow you to reach out to the foot of a sore leg, use a towel or strap as an accessory for the same purpose.

It is necessary to perform once a day.


This is the last exercise, and after completing the complex of therapeutic exercises it is very important to self-massage the thigh. This self-massage must be done sitting, and massage only the anterior and lateral surface of the thigh, but not the back.

Place the palms on the thigh just above the knee, press them firmly against the foot and begin to perform vigorous rubbing of the leg, as you proceed slowly moving up from the bottom. This massage should be done for about three minutes until a feeling of stable heat, but making sure that it does not go into pain or burning sensations.

After this, within 1 minute, complete the final part of the massage, conducting a gentle and smooth stroking of the hip skin from the bottom up.

In addition, when performing exercises, you should not experience severe, severe pain. If this happens, it means that this exercise is also not suitable for you.

2. It is important that in between exercises, even if they last only a few seconds, you have time to completely relax the muscles of the body. It is best to just lie down for this.

3. Try to finish each cycle of exercises at least small, for 3-5 minutes, by foot massage. It is useful in this case to use various heating gels and ointments. We already wrote about some of them: this is the gel of Horsepower( Horse Force), Zoo-VIP-gel, as well as Valentin Dikul's balm for joints.


Effective therapeutic gymnastics with coxarthrosis of the hip joint

The destruction of the joint is due to the depletion of cartilaginous tissue in it and traumatic friction of the bones

Joint destruction occurs due to the depletion of cartilaginous tissue in it and the traumatic friction of bones

In the mornings, I do not always want to get up. But if this reluctance is associated with lethargy and stiffness of the joints, if you need some time to feel the confidence in the hands and feet, you need to call the doctor. Coxarthrosis is a scourge of our time, it belongs to the palm tree among diseases of the musculoskeletal system. In most cases, this disease affects people who have crossed the 40-year mark. And in women, this disease develops much more often.

Coxarthrosis of the hip joint can be one-sided and two-sided. And with the bilateral form of the joints are affected not simultaneously, but one after another. The insidiousness of coxarthrosis is that at the initial stage, when the disease can be easily cured, it manifests itself as a minor symptom. In the morning, only stiffness manifests, walking can cause pelvic or knee joints, but it quickly passes. And only then there is a characteristic crunch in the bones. Medical gymnastics with coxarthrosis of the hip joint can successfully combat this disease.

Symptoms and causes of the development of the disease

The disease develops in 3 stages. At 1 degree of coxarthrosis the articular space narrows, small changes begin in the bones. The mobility and performance of a person during the day is not affected.

As practice shows, coxarthrosis of the hip joint, spine or knee is most often diagnosed at the 2 stages of the disease development. Due to active internal changes, pain intensifies and from episodic to frequent( especially at night).He walks more hard, he begins to spare his aching leg, takes a cane in his hands. In the muscles of the leg, deprived of the usual load, blood supply worsens, dystrophy develops and, as a result, a person has lameness. All this is due to the rapidly progressing lesion of the interarticular tissue. The cartilaginous tissue is thinned, and the inflammation of the periosteum begins.

The difference between a patient and a healthy hip joint is the depletion of the cartilaginous

The difference between a patient and a healthy hip joint is the depletion of the cartilaginous "cushion"

In coxarthrosis of grade 3, the radiograph shows significant bone growth around the head of the large femur and the top of the acetabulum, and the extension of the cervix is ​​also seen. The joint gap is almost absent. The posture and gait of the patient change. The walking stick becomes not an auxiliary, but an obligatory means for movement. The pain does not stop day nor night, only their intensity changes. The fourth degree - the most severe form of coxarthrosis - is characterized by complete immobility of the joints.

It is impossible to say unambiguously what influences the appearance of this disease. There are a number of reasons for the development of the disease. Any of them or a combination of several factors are capable of provoking the appearance of the disease.

Coxarthrosis in childhood can appear as a consequence of congenital degenerative changes in the hip joint. Its development in an adult person is facilitated by excess weight, excessive strain on the joints, injuries received earlier, arthritis, osteoporosis, congenital changes in the head of the femur, heredity.

Treatment and prevention of coxarthrosis

As there is no single cause for the appearance of coxarthrosis, so there is no one true way of treatment. At different stages of the disease, different drugs are prescribed, designed to stop pain and cramps, remove inflammation and help preserve or build up cartilage tissue. But, as a rule, some medicamental measures are not enough.

When treating a disease of any stage is a therapeutic gymnastics. Regular and correct execution of it returns the joints mobility, and the muscles - the ability to function normally.

During exercises, the load rises only if you perform more exercises and the repetitions of each of them. If the weight of the patient is insufficient to achieve the desired effect in the exercise of exercise therapy, doctors can recommend using additional weighting agents within reasonable limits. These can be rubber bands or cuffs. When doing gymnastics with such weighting it is necessary to monitor the amplitude of each movement, in any case it does not increase and do everything slowly.

      Medical gymnastics should be conducted under the supervision of the instructor of exercise therapy. This is the most optimal option. The coach himself will select the best complex of therapeutic gymnastics for the patient, will show how to perform the exercises, make sure that they are performed correctly, without unnecessary workload.

      If necessary, gymnastics with coxarthrosis can be performed independently at home. Complex with coxarthrosis can be selected independently.

      We recommend using various videos in which you can see how the physical exercises are performed, and then repeat them. On the video, the instructor will also talk about the rules of curative gymnastics, precautions and duration - follow the recommendations with the video and you will be able to achieve the same effect as in the exercises with the instructor of exercise therapy.

      Complex of exercises

      The duration and complexity of therapeutic gymnastics depends on the degree of hip joint and associated diseases, as well as the main course of therapy. For example, in the initial stages it is allowed to ride a bicycle( as an alternative - an exercise bike with coxarthrosis of the hip joint).In the case of acute diseases of the internal organs, you should completely abandon the therapeutic gymnastics.

      For different degrees of arthrosis, their exercises are selected. Here is an example of therapeutic gymnastics for patients with different stages of coxarthrosis of the hip joint.

      Therapeutic exercises for the first degree of coxarthrosis:

      1. Lie on your back. Straight leg up gently, making gentle rocking from side to side. At the first lessons the amplitude is small, then you can gradually increase the amplitude of the movements. Repeat the movement with the second leg( for more trained you can perform the movement "scissors").Listen to your sensations in the hip joint, determining the speed and amplitude of the movements.
      2. Lie on your back. We raise and lower the leg to the maximum height at the time of the movement. We perform from five to 10-15 repetitions( increase their number gradually).The same is done with the second leg.
      3. Lie on your stomach( if it's hard, you can perform on the back), place the roller under the feet. Make easy rocking movements of the pelvis sideways. Do not do this quickly, the amplitude is small( light wiggle).

      It is best to perform therapeutic physical exercises under the guidance of a specialized training.

      Therapeutic exercises for the second degree of coxarthrosis:

      1. Sit on a chair, brush on the knees. Lean forward, trying to reach the toes to the toes. The back is straight( do not round, do not bend), the belly lies on the hips. We perform 10 inclines.
      2. Sit on a chair, hands on the thigh or knees. Make shaking movements with your feet to the sides( dilute and reduce your knees), the amplitude is small. In this case there will be no pain in the region of the hip joint.
      3. From the same position, lift the leg, lifting the heel off the floor for 1-2 cm and lowering it back( holding the toe on the floor).
      4. Lying on your back, perform movements that mimic cycling. Do it for 10 seconds, rest and repeat again.
      5. Standing, holding on to the back of the chair, one foot on the stand( bar, brick).We make flops with our free foot back and forth. At first, speed and amplitude increase, then reduce. We make flops with the other leg. We execute 10 mahov each foot.

      Therapeutic exercises for the third degree of coxarthrosis:

      1. Sit on a chair. Centimeters at 10-15 lift up the leg, bent at the knee. Smoothly put your foot back on the floor. Change your foot. Repeat the exercise 10 times for each leg.
      2. The starting position is the same. Spread your legs and slowly raise and lower your knees. Repeat 10-15 times.
      3. Lying on your back, pull your knees to your chest. Begin to breed and reduce legs, each time extending the distance between the knees. Start with five repetitions and bring up to 10-15.

      After training

      After therapeutic gymnastics you need to fix the effect. At the end of training, it would be good to swim in the pool, which will help relieve tension in the muscles. Warm baths with herbs will also be useful. Specialists strongly recommend going to massage:

      • Massage improves blood circulation and metabolic processes in the body.
      • Massage strengthens the ligaments.
      • Massage helps relieve tension in the muscles.
      • Massage promotes increased mobility of the hip joint.

      Do not exercise abruptly and vigorously. It is necessary to completely eliminate exercises that cause pain

      Massage with coxarthrosis is performed very carefully, with slow movements, without applying great efforts. Duration of manual procedures should not exceed 15 minutes.


      Gentle yoga is gaining increasing popularity in the treatment and prevention of diseases, including coxarthrosis. It can be used as an alternative to traditional therapeutic gymnastics. And even better - in addition to classical exercises. There are several rules for performing exercises from yoga:

      • Yoga is recommended only at the initial stage of hip joint disease.
      • Exercises should only be selected with an instructor, since most of all asanas from yoga exert a strong load on the joints, which is categorically contraindicated in coxarthrosis. With this disease, only gentle exercises can be performed.

      Correct execution of gentle asanas from yoga saturates the body with oxygen, improves blood flow in the joints, increases the elasticity of muscles and helps to get rid of pain.

      General rules for the implementation of

      There are general rules that must be observed when performing any complex of therapeutic gymnastics or gentle yoga:

      • Therapeutic exercises and yoga are performed slowly, without jerks. The rate of charging can be accelerated as the training increases. The rate depends on the degree of coxarthrosis of the hip joint.
      • Coxarthrosis exercises begin with a small number of repetitions, usually at five. But if the exercise is difficult, then you must confine yourself to two or three repetitions or temporarily replace it with an easier one. As the training increases, the number of repetitions is increased to 10-15.
      • Be sure to listen to the sensations in the hip joint. They will tell you how to do the exercises. Carefully study how to correctly perform movements in coxarthrosis.
      • While moving, do not hold your breath. Breathe evenly and deeply.
      • The presence of arthrosis of the hip joint is accompanied by pain in it, and therefore exercise therapy with coxarthrosis of the hip joint is carried out in a position that excludes the maximum load on the affected area. The best position in this case is a lying position, with a small pad under the head and a roller under the knees. The heavier the arthrosis of the hip joint, the thicker the roller is required, as usually the leg is in a bent state and its extension is difficult.

      The most important thing: when treating arthrosis, never stop only on physical education, otherwise the disease will not be cured. Remember that medical gymnastics is only one of the components of the complex of health-improving activities. Do not forget about drug treatment, diet, regular massage, warming, etc.

      • happiness

        Mom is now engaged in therapeutic gymnastics. She said that the first week was very difficult - everything was hurting and crackling. But now I'm used to it. He says that there are no such pains, as they were from the very beginning.


      Exercises for coxarthrosis of the hip joint

      In addition to drug therapy, the use of gymnastics in coxarthrosis, which is part of conservative complex treatment, is considered effective. Exercises with coxarthrosis of the hip joint prevent the fusion of the damaged joint and contribute to the preservation of its mobility.

      In performing gymnastic actions, the damaged joint takes a direct part and should be extremely careful not to cause harm and not to worsen the condition of the joint. That is why a specific set of exercises has been developed, which is aimed at eliminating the disease and is safe for the joint.

      How correctly to perform therapeutic gymnastics?

      The main rule is smoothness of movements. There should be no hurry and sharpness. Energetic efforts are also useless. The main task is the development of the joint, so gymnastics with coxarthrosis of the hip joint is not dynamic, but static. Experts recommend completing exercises by the procedure of muscle massaging in the hip area, as well as massaging during gymnastics, with pain and discomfort.

      It is necessary to exclude such actions as: squats, lunges, movements with a large amplitude and so on. In general, with coxarthrosis, any significant workloads that can provoke complications are contraindicated. A mandatory condition is the absence of an axial load on the hip joint.

      Water procedures are well proven in this disease. If the state of health allows, then swimming will be very effective. If there is no possibility to visit the pool, the river or any pond, you can take warm baths and perform smooth movements while lying in the water. Such measures perfectly eliminate pain and ease.

      Exercises for coxarthrosis

      Despite the fact that a heavy load with this pathology is prohibited, gymnastics still provides for minor impact on the affected joint. Exercises are designed not only to remove the edema, but also to normalize the trophism of the damaged joint. In the process of gymnastic actions, the joint fluid is washed with all the cartilaginous tissues and this helps to eliminate severe pain and early recovery of the affected joint.

      LFK assigned to the patient only after the main diagnostic measures. Based on the results of the study, the specialist selects a suitable set of actions that will be effective in treating pathology and will not harm the joint. Do not self-select exercises for yourself, without consulting with your doctor. This often leads to serious complications, to eliminate which is an extremely difficult task.

      Important points

      1. Strictly follow all the recommendations of a specialist and not depart from the prescriptions.
      2. The performance of gymnastics must fully comply with the technique.
      3. If you have painful symptoms, you must stop exercising and consult a doctor.
      4. Before starting the exercises, do not take analgesics and NSAIDs. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and pain medications dull the sensation and the joint may suffer during gymnastics. In this case, the patient will not be able to assess the effect of the procedure on his organism, since the pain syndrome will not be noticeable.
      5. It is compulsory to perform a massage, shown for the removal of edema and normalization of blood flow and lymph flow. Massaging the affected area will improve the processes of feeding nutrients to damaged tissues.

      Complex of exercises

      In most cases, with coxarthrosis, apply gentle gymnastic measures, which are described below.

      In the supine position :

      • Feet to stretch along the body, hands at the seams. At the inspiration, gradually raise your arms and lower them with an exhalation. At a slow pace, repeat 6-8 times.
      • Being in the same position, on the inhalation bend your arms in the elbows, and on the exhalation unbend.
      • Lying on your back to raise and lower your legs, then bend and unbend them in your lap( not taking your feet off the floor).Perform also combining with the respiratory rhythm.
      • Without changing the starting position, plant and reduce legs together. Important: do not remove heels from the surface.
      • Exercise "Bicycle".Keep your hands at the waist. The pace should be calm and smooth. Time to perform - 15 sec.

      In the supine position :

      • Hands on the hip zone. Raise your head with your shoulders and hold at least 3-4 seconds. Repeat up to 6 times, taking a break 2 seconds.
      • Raise the straight legs and fix the body in this position for a few seconds. Take a break and repeat again.
      • Hands to pull forward, raise the shoulder girdle and make movements as if swimming with a breaststroke.

      Most of the above actions can be performed in a position lying on the side and standing. Be sure to monitor proper breathing, avoid overwork and take breaks between approaches.

      There is still a lot of useful and effective gymnastic exercises, but they can be used only after consultation with the attending physician!
