How can I stop pain in hip?
Many people experience hip pain at some point in their life. It’s a condition that can be caused by a variety of issues. I am also suffering from this pain. My pain is on the inside of hip or groin region. What should I do? Do I need to see a doctor?
@vatan In some cases, hip pain is nothing more than a short-term annoyance, while in other cases it can be a sign of a serious health problem. If you have mild to moderate hip pain, you might want to try an at-home treatment.
Basic treatments for all types of hip pain include:
Rest. Avoid doing things that require you to bend at the hip or put a lot of pressure on the hip. Avoid sleeping on the side of your hip that is painful and sitting for long periods of time
Over-the-counter pain relievers. Some pain-relieving medications like acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB), and naproxen sodium (Aleve) can help reduce inflammation that might be causing or aggravating your hip pain.
Cold and heat. Treating pain with heat and cold may help. Wrap an ice pack or a bag of frozen vegetables in a towel to ice your hip. A warm bath or shower may also help reduce your pain and prepare your muscles for stretching.
Stretch. Gently stretching your body may reduce hip pain, especially if the cause is a strain or pinched nerve.
