Get knee pain during hip stretches? Learn how to fix knee pain. Watch this video for a simple trick to reduce knee pain when you’re doing stretching. When you’re trying to improve your hip mobility, you may get knee pain. If you get knee pain while trying to stretch your hips, this simple adjustment can relieve your knee pain. The goal with all hip stretching is to make sure your hip muscles are getting challenged. You should not be stretching so intensely that you hurt the muscles and tendons that meet at the knee!

Hannah Miller says:

Thank you sir! I have a follow-up question; what muscles should I strengthen to help stabilize my knees or hips so that it's easier for me to prevent my tibias from rotating without props? Or what are some hip stretches that place minimal pressure on the knees? How can I stretch my hips in a way that targets my abdominals more than knees and downward?

JL A. says:

Good tip, but actually in the 90/90 pain is often feel is the front leg, when you push your knee into the ground if you knee is more flexible than your hip you can tweak your knee…

Ransom Cozzillio says:

Hey Matt,

What about the reverse? Outer side knee pain from internal rotation of tibia. I’ve started getting this while do like piriformis stretches, for example.

Mario Cooke says:

i fix this by doing the same hip stretch on a foamy mat. or, if you don't have a very padded mat, fold it until you have enough comfort
