Improve Your Hip Health

The Ultimate Healthy Hip Guide


The knees and hips are the largest joints in the body. If something happens to one of these major joints, it will greatly affect your mobility because both support your body's weight and they must work in close coordination. Those who have previously given birth and those who love to slouch on their chairs are at a higher risk of suffering from a bad hip. If you feel pain in your hips, here are some of the things you should do.

Visit a health center near you and get a diagnosis. The key to a fast recovery it to know what is causing the pain. The doctor is the best person to tell you what you should be doing and what you should NOT be doing, He'd tell you if medication is needed and what kind of exercises you should do to ease the pain.

When you feel pain in your hips, the tissues and muscles around them are most likely inflamed, so a cold compress might work. Do it for fifteen minutes several times a day. However, if you think the cause of your pain is arthritis doing a hot compress is best. Heating your hips can soothe pain instantly.

If the cause of your pain is because you have injured your hips, get some rest and give them time to heal. Avoid doing anything that causes you to feel pain in your hip and ice it several times a day.
