An Introduction Into The 9 Best Corrective Exercises For Unhappy Hips
In running athlete populations, there seems to be much confusion about how to use corrective exercises to reduce hip region issues. In this mini-guide, I’ll take you through some extremely powerful exercises I use, within the first week, with many of my runners to get them back to their training.
This is NOT an extremely comprehensive/ overwhelming document on purpose.
It’s simply a “gateway” into using corrective exercises to assist in the reduction of hip issues in distance athletes. By the end, I hope you’ll see the importance of training the foot, core and single leg loading ability on hip health and elongating a career in running.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stronger In My 40’s Than 20’s! If you are active and are in pain, I highly recommend you go visit Dr. Gonzales. I started running half marathons 5 years ago, but it became more and more difficult due to knee and hip pain. I came to see Dr. Gonzales to see if he could help me with my pain. He didn’t simply fix my pain through adjustments, but he gave me tools I can use to make my body stronger. After working with Dr. Gonzales for a few months, I was able to run my first half marathon without any KT tape on my knees. I didn’t have pain in my knees or my hips while I was running. He is continually showing me new exercises to strengthen my weak areas so that I am not always in pain.
Since my knee and hip are doing much better, he has been helping me with a snowboarding injury in my neck for the past 9 months. This is taking a lot longer since I’ve had chronic neck issues since I was in middle school. I have learned to manage my pain as well as strengthen that area so that I can continue my active lifestyle. I can confidently say that I am entering my 40’s stronger and healthier because Dr. Gonzales has shared so much of his knowledge on how the body works and what I can do to be stronger.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Hip Pain GONE!!!
I had been living uncomfortably and in pain for years, and was depressed as a result. My depression wasn’t noticeable until I began feeling better and suddenly my mood shifted. Not one doctor I had seen pointed out that I had a hip impingement, poor core strength as well as instability issues. This was immediately addressed with Dr. G! I constantly felt pain in my left hip, and low back. It got to the point where my right leg always felt like it was going to blow up, tightness in my right hip, even foot issues! I spent way too much money seeing the typical chiros that love to adjust and send you on your way, or PT’s that perform loads of manual work and recommend stretching which would always cause flare ups with zero results. I was going bananas! Work was torture and even walking made me want to cry. These issues were negatively affecting my life. Strength training and movement on a daily basis have been a game changer, along with some basic movement strategies that Dr. G recommended. I had already been training for years but nailing down diaphragmatic breathing and learning to move accordingly to target the joints that needed improvement have been the key to my success! Not only has he helped me physically, he has also helped me mentally by helping me understand that the human body is made to heal and recover on its own. I’ve learned to trust him and the recovery process and couldn’t be more grateful! I am currently able to participate in the activities I love, pain free! WALKING, working, strength training, sitting – YES, SITTING! So much more. I would refer just about anyone with physical pain to see Dr. Gonzales! I’m happy to have a great Chiropractor to refer my clients to if need be. You’re the best Dr. G!
