Some of the conditions that commonly cause hip pain are arthritis, bursitis, hip fracture, tendinitis, muscle or tendon strain, hip labral tear, and osteonecrosis. You might feel the discomfort in your groin, inside or outside of hip joint, thigh, or buttocks.
With age and use, the cartilage can wear down or become damaged. Muscles and tendons in the hip can get overused. Along with the pain, you might have reduced range of motion. Some people develop a limp from persistent hip pain.
Does this all sound a bit scary? Well it doesn’t have to! Long before any real or permanent damage occurs, we can do some serious prevention! Stretching the hips, performing myofascial release and strengthening these muscles helps to support the joints and avoid all this unnecessary wear and tear.
If you don’t know what is causing your hip pain, a good place to start learning about the possible cause is by performing myofascial release specific to your hip joints.
Please join Darcy at the next +PLUS Release class on Monday, October 28th, where we will release all the fascia and muscles affecting the hip, as well as stretching and strengthening techniques to help you come up with a plan to address your hip pain and work towards a more active and happy you!
