Grab a chair for these hip pain exercises and let’s reduce the inflammation you are experiencing in your hips. This pain can be anywhere from just annoying to excruciating. And there are so many possibilities that could be causing it: arthritis, bursitis, tight or pulled muscles, or even something originating in your back.
By using some gentle movement, we are enhancing blood flow to the area to supply the needed nutrients, oxygen and antibodies necessary for healing and take away any toxins resulting from the inflammation. The light stretching will help free up the ball and socket and promote improved range of motion.
What Causes Hip Pain?
There are many factors that contribute to hip pain. Some of the major ones include:
- An underlying condition, like arthritis
- Bursitis, which is when inflamed sacs of liquid form between the bones
- A small bone fracture
- Pulled muscle from injury or overuse
- Improper posture or back pain, which is causing you to transfer pressure to your hips
Alleviating Hip Pain At Home
As you progress through these hip pain exercises, any moves that cause more than mild discomfort should not be repeated. It will only inflame the area more. Likewise, do not over stretch the hip. Just go to the point of mild tension in order to free up the joint.
As with all exercise, some will work for you and some will not. Try to pinpoint the ones that bring comfort or just do a few different ones each day in order to decide what works best for you.
