What is hip pain and how can we help?
Hip pain is often caused by overuse or injury to the hip joint. The hip joint is an area where there can be a lot of stress, with the muscles and tendons in the lower leg passing through it. This can cause inflammation and pain in the hip joint itself, as well as in nearby areas such as the buttock.
Causes and Risk Factors
There are many different things that can cause pain of the hip. Arthritis in the hips, a weak core, or too much time spent sitting down can all cause people to experience pain.
The first course of action is to identify the root cause of the problem. The most common culprits are arthritis in the hips and a weak core, so these should be looked into first as they can be treated at home with natural remedies like using ice packs or warm compresses. Another cause is spending too much time sitting down; this can lead to spasms in the muscles which affect circulation and create pressure on the joints leading to discomfort
