Hip alignment—perhaps more than the alignment of any other joint in the body—can be challenging because of a loss of flexibility in the ligaments that support the joint, and foreshortening in the muscles that articulate the hips. While none of our joints are as flexible as they were when we were infants, the hips lose more flexibility over time than other joints in our bodies. This is because the hip joints started out extremely flexible, but in our daily lives we make use of such a limited part of their original range of motion, and joints and muscles will tighten up naturally to permit no more than the range of motion repeatedly required of them.

Do you ever ask yourself any of the above questions? Should you?
