Your hip flexor muscle and IT band are likely to blame.
Today, many of us sit all day, 8 hours a day, 7 days a week. When we sit, our hips are in constant flexion. This can create shortening of the muscles in the front of the body where the hips and thighs connect. It can also shorten the IT band that runs along the outside of your thighs.
The human body is really good at adapting. And unfortunately, the ‘if you don’t use it, you lose it’ mantra proves somewhat true. You may feel stiff standing up. Your hips may be constantly feel sore. Finding relief can be tough.
