In case of hip pain, as a result of arthritis, bursitis or because of some extensive work it might be next to impossible for you to carry on with your routinely chores. Reason being, you might feel fatigued or in the presence of pain you would not be able to walk, sit or stand properly.
In the situation when the chronic hip pain is becoming a hurdle for you in your daily life, you can manage it definitely by following the below mentioned ways.
Earn Relief by the following Tips
A Different Start To Your Day
Try starting your day with exercise, as it would get your muscles in a working condition, all time activated and engaged in whatever task you want to kick start. The exercise that will be best in such chronic pain would be lying down back on your legs, keeping your feet flat on the floor. Furthermore, your ankles and your knees should be in exact straight line.
Making the Most of Ice
Because of arthritis or bursitis, the joints become inflamed and eventually it becomes problematic for the patients to carry on with the movement like they used to before. Hip pain because of inflammation will be greatly reduced when icing is applied to the joint. For 15 minutes, everyday, this process should be repeated. The process should be carried out by wrapping a towel containing the ice that would in turn lessen the pain to a greater extent.
Heat For Chronic Pain
Sometimes, the cold therapy is not enough to treat hip pain. If this is the case, then try to warm up your affected joint using a hot shower or bath. This will eventually help soothe the joint to a greater extent. However, if your hip pain is because of bursitis then heat remedy is not recommended as it can make inflammation even worse.
Avoiding High Impact Activities
Being a victim of chronic hip pain, make sure that you do not perform any heavy duty activities like lifting heavy objects or even jumping or running. Because running and jumping in an arthritis or bursitis condition will make the hip pain even more acute.
