What can I do to treat hip pain after prolonged sitting?
Hello, I experience pain in my hips after prolonged sitting. I work in a corporate company where sometimes I need to work for more than 12 hours and sometimes I don’t move for an hour or so which causes pain in my hips. Please suggest what can I do to treat or how can I relieve pain after sitting for too long, also let me know what causes pain in the hips after sitting for too long. I am 39 years old male. Thank You for your suggestion.
@kasen Hello, Hip pain after prolonged sitting is because the hip joint bends and supports most of your body weight when you’re sitting. Where in the hip you feel pain can tell you a lot about why you have hip pain when sitting. Your hip pain might feel like a sharp, stabbing pain or a dull ache. If you have pain or discomfort on the inside of your hip or groin area when you’re sitting, it might be due to conditions in the hip bones and joints.
Treatment for hip pain when sitting includes muscle relaxing medication, heat therapy, cold compress, massage therapy, weight loss, exercise (Do hip and pelvis stretching exercises like sitting on an exercise ball), Use a seat with back (lumbar) support and Wear loose clothing. Tight jeans, pants, or belts can lead to hip pain when sitting. Thanks!
