If you are dealing with tension or tightness in the front of your hips and think thats it’s due to “tight hip flexors,” then the “Thomas Test” is what you need to try. A feeling of tension or tightness in the front of the hips does not necessarily mean that you have tight muscles…and this test will help clear that question up.
The Thomas Test is used to assess the Iliopsoas muscle at the front of the hip (hip flexor muscle), Rectus Femoris muscle at the front of the thigh (quad muscle), and Tensor Fascia Lata (outer hip muscle). All of these muscles can contribute to mobility issues and problems at the hip.
Check out the video to learn how to do the assessment for yourself and find out if you have true tightness in the hips.
