Hip bursitis is very common. It can be a special challenge for runners. Fortunately, there are certain exercises that you can perform to counteract this issue. Read on to learn more about them and relieve the symptoms.

1Leg Circles

Leg circles are great exercises to improve the strength, flexibility, and range of motion in all small muscles that allow for leg and hip rotation. These include gluteal muscles, quadriceps, and hip flexors. You do not need any special equipment. Start with lying flat on the back and extend both legs. Raise the right leg and make small circles. Keep in mind to keep the entire leg in line and straight. Change to the other leg and do the same move. Do 10 rotations on both legs for each set. [1]
