We tend to spend more time using our hips and legs in a turned out, rather than turned in position. And that’s OK, but ideally we should have the strength and flexibility to turn the leg outward and inward. When we spend most of our time exercising in a turned out or parallel position, it can change our gait and lead to foot pain, knee pain, hip pain, and back pain.
If your hips are tight and strong, or tight and weak, the result can be more stress and strain on your knees, and alignment issues for your ankles, feet, and heels.
The Pulse Power – Pigeon Pulse exercise is an easy way to work on improving inward rotation and hip mobility, hamstring strengthening to support the knees, and increasing the stretch for the calf muscles, especially to the inner heel.
