How to get relief from hip pain?

Hip pain affects many people at some point in their lives. It is a condition that can be caused by a number of factors. Knowing where your pain is coming from can help you figure out what's causing it.

Pain on the inside of your hip is most likely the result of a problem with your hip joint. Pain on the outside of your hip, upper thigh, or outer buttocks is most likely caused by a problem with the muscles or soft tissues surrounding your hip joint. It's also possible that your hip pain is coming from somewhere else in your body, such as your lower back.




The following are some of the most common causes of hip pain:


· Inflammation of a joint

· Hip fracture

· Hip dislocation

· Sprains or strains

· Hip labral tear

· Nerve Problem owing to Tendinitis

· Bone infection

· Synovitis in joint cavities





Well, hip pain can be extremely difficult to deal with, but here are a few exercises that we highly recommend you try to get some relief from the pain.


  • Stretching the Hamstrings

Your hamstrings connect to the pelvis behind your hip and work to bend and extend your knees and hips. Tightness in this area can cause hip pain and limit your ability to move normally. To stretch your hamstrings effectively, do the following:

  1. Lie on your back with your knees straight out.

  2. Bend one leg so that the bottom of that leg's foot rests against the thigh region of the other straightened leg.

  3. Reach your hands towards the foot of the straightened leg until you feel a stretch.

  4. Maintain the stretch for 60 seconds.

  5. Repeat for each side three times.



  • Stretch your hip flexors.

Hip flexors are located in the front of your hip and thigh and are frequently tight when you have osteoarthritis or sit for long periods of time at work. Stretch your hip flexors by doing the following:


  1. One knee should be on the floor, and the other foot should be flat in front of you.

  2. Tighten your abdominals and keep your shoulders and chest up high.

  3. Slide your body forward until you feel a pull in the front of your hip and thigh on the floor-knee.

  4. Hold the position for 60 seconds, and then switch sides three times.


The Iliotibial band is a thick elastically band that runs from the lateral hip to the lateral knee. To stretch your iliotibial band, do the following:


  1. Lie down on your side.

  2. The side you want to stretch should be at the top.

  3. Maintain stability by keeping your bottom knee bent.

  4. Then reach back and grab the ankle of your upper leg and bend your knee.

  5. While keeping your knee bent, gently place your bottom leg's foot on top of your upper knee.

  6. Pull your upper knee down towards the floor with your foot on top of your knee.

  7. Hold this position for 60 seconds before relaxing. Repeat
