5 Simple Do it Yourself Home Remedies for Hip Pain

Should you be experiencing hip pain, and don't feel it's serious enough to warrant a visit to the hip doctor, you may want to try one or a few home remedies for hip pain.

Home Remedy for Hip Pain #1

If something about your hips is paining you, rest those hips of yours. Rest for any part of your body, including your very important strength-bearing hips, is the single most effective curative action, if you will, you can do for yourself. Does rest mean laying down in bed all day? Not necessarily. Rest can simply mean amending or adjusting your level of activity down from where you normally operate. Whatever you choose, you know how much rest you need to give your hips.

Home Remedy for Hip Pain #2

Do you know that the pain in your hip can be helped by packing some ice onto it? Ice helps with some injuries, and for others it's the last thing you want to do. If it's something you know that will helped by what ice does-constricts or slows down blood flow to wherever the cold is applied-then by all means pack some ice into a towel and apply it for as long as you can stand it. Some persons may tell you a big 'ole ice pack does nothing for hip pain that's deep down. Don't let that melt you. If you leave it on long enough, the cold from ice is going to penetrate deep down into your hips. Think about it: if you put ice on one part of your body, even far out on one of your extremities, does not your whole body cool down? At least to some degree? Yes, it does.

Home Remedy for Hip Pain #3

Compression, or the act of applying pressure, could be considered the third level of remediation for hip pain; but, how do you apply pressure to your hips? If simple rest isn't the antidote, if you will, for your hip pain, and neither is a numbing ice pack doing much for the pain you're experiencing, have a friend try and work out the pain with compressions. That may be what's needed to remedy it. Applying pressure with the intent of "working out" the pain can be very effective.

Home Remedy for Hip Pain #4

Elevate your hips higher than the rest of your body. Ok, how do you do that, since it's smack dab in the middle of your body. Lay in a prone, or flat, position with pillows stacked up underneath your hips. You may not think of it, but this is possible in all four directions: laying on your stomach, with your face down; laying on your back, with your face up; laying on your left side, with your face facing sideways; laying on your right side, with your face facing sideways. In all four positions, you can stack pillows underneath your hips. You don't necessarily need pillows to do this either. Anything will do, as long as it gets your hips elevated. What does elevating do? Takes advantage of gravity, making less of your blood stay to your hips; thereby, reducing swelling, and so forth.

Home Remedy for Hip Pain #5

Salves and rubs for all sorts of pain abound, including what may be paining you in your hips. But here's one you've probably never heard: cherries. Six to eight cherries have the same pain-killing ability as one aspirin. Now, hip pain can be pretty painful. And if it is you may want to move beyond home remedies, and visit a hip doctor. It could be a serious matter. However, if it's an aching hip that you don't believe is a serious matter, eat a handful of delicious cherries. They just may do the trick.
