The hip joint can withstand repeated motion and a fair amount of wear and tear. This ball-and-socket joint -- the body's largest -- fits together in a way that allows for fluid movement.Whenever you use the hip (for example, by going for a run), a cushion of cartilage helps prevent friction as the hip bone moves in its socket. Despite its durability, the hip joint isn't indestructible. With age and use, the cartilage can wear down or become damaged. Muscles and tendons in the hip can get overused. Bones in the hip can break during a fall or other injury. Any of these conditions can lead to hip pain. If your hips are sore, here is a rundown of what might be causing your discomfort and how to get hip pain relief.
How to Stop Chronic, Daily Annoying Hip Pain WITHOUT Injections and WITHOUT Taking Painkillers. If you’re living with a bad hip that are painful or ache It’s very easy to think that it’s: ·“Just something that comes with age”. ·It’s a bit of “wear and tear”. ·That it’s nothing and it’ll go away on its own. In fact, Hip Pain is one of the most common problems that we see at Body Balance Physical Therapy.
“Why is This Happening to Me?” ... or, “Why am I still suffering with Hip pain that keeps getting worse after putting up with it for 6 months - sometimes more?"...
Most people think that when they get Hip Pain, it’ll eventually “ease off” and go away on its own. That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, Hip Pain will be a thing of the past... But then 6 months later you’re still living with the discomfort of knee pain - often even worse than it was when it came on.
Does That Sound Like You? Another scenario we see all the time in our physical therapy clinic is when people go to their Doctors, and they advise them to “rest”, “try these painkillers” and “come back in 6 weeks if it’s no better” - but then 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the same Doctor again because it hasn’t got any better, only to be given ANOTHER prescription of even stronger pills.
