Here Are The Top Tips for Hip Pain Relief!!

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.

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.

Anti-Inflammatories

The anti-inflammatories also known as non-steroidal and anti-inflammatory drugs help in treating the mild, moderate or even severe pain associated with inflammation of the affected area. The inflammation can be as a result of injuries because of some accident or because of muscular tears, bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, labral tears, synovitis etc.

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is the option that should be approached in order to comprehend the right reason behind chronic hip pain. Surrounded by almost 30 muscles, the physical therapy for hip joint will help strengthen muscles, increase the flexibility and help in maintaining the proper movement of the joint. This will all in all help reduce the inflammation. Adding to this, the proper muscular training will therefore decrease the chances of surgery.

Injections

The use of injections is typically for the purpose of not only relieving hip pain but also diagnosing the cause behind it. Below elaborated are types of injections that help in easing the pain and exploring the cause behind it:

Psoas Injection

Performed under an ultrasound, these injections are carried out when the diagnosis is considered to be symptomatic psoas tendon, which is located outside of the hip joint. Moreover, there are cases in which the diagnosis is difficult to make because the psoas tendon which has become painful can land the patient into the compression or the tears of labrum.

Intra-articular Injections

A cortisone injection, directly applied in the area of the hip joint can help give the hip pain relief. The injections performed under proper ultrasound with highly resonated ultrasound equipment will target the exact area of hip pain thus providing pain relief.

Trochanteric Bursa Injection

Patients suffering from bursitis which is on the outside of the hip are the best candidates of Trochanteric Bursa Injections. These are said to be the patients who have not found hip pain relief from neither physical therapy nor any anti-inflammatory medications.
