Hip pain can be very intrusive. Not only does it impact on your daily activities, it can also cause sleep disruption. Apart from using pain relief, what can you do to help ease your hip pain in a natural way and at no extra financial cost? Believe it or not, exercises can help with hip pain – stretching and strengthening the muscles and keeping the joint active can help relieve pain and help maintain mobility. Having strong muscles can also protect against future injury.
Here are a few exercise suggestions that may help with your hip pain.
Stretching your muscles is good preparation for strengthening exercises. For each movement try sustaining the repetition for around one minute. Some stretching suggestions include:
Building up your thigh and hip muscles helps stabilise and protect your hip joint.
Swimming is a great all-round work out, allowing you to strengthen your muscles without putting strain on your joints. Water aerobics is another option that can help. Walking is another great low impact exercise.
These are just some hip pain exercise suggestions that you could consider. However, if they make your symptoms worse or cause a new pain, stop. A visit to your doctor or physiotherapist could furnish you with more exercises that are particularly suitable for your individual requirements.
