Hip Flexor

Hip Flexor

The Hip Flexors are comprised of three muscles: the rectus femoris, psoas major, and the illiacus.  Hip flexors are responsible for flexing the hip and knee.  By keeping these muscles limber, you can help ease the pain of your knee OA.

Stretching, exercise, and weight loss will all help your knees feel better.  Stop taking the medications and avoid surgery.  Start thinking about conservative treatment options for your osteoarthritis of the knee.
