Do you experience pain in your hip after exercising? Our sports physiotherapist will explain everything about pain in your hips.

Exercise is good for you. It is a form of relaxation, you can sort out all your thoughts and it will make you fitter. However, hip pain after exercise is a problem. It is certainly not the intention to get pain from vigorous exercise (muscle pain is of course completely fine). What is the best thing to do if these pain complaints arise? The sports physiotherapist at Fysi Tilburg will explain everything about pain in your hips.

What causes hip pain after exercise?

Rest assured: you are certainly not the only one who sometimes experiences hip pain after exercise. It is important to determine the cause of the pain. Once you know the cause of your hip complaints, you can tackle them in a targeted manner. There is a good chance that you are not a doctor or physiotherapist yourself. But you can check for yourself at what point you started experiencing pain and which movements make this pain worse. Causes that can lead to pain in your hips include:

  • Difference in leg length
  • Inflammation of the joint in the hip
  • Osteoarthritis of the hip
  • (too) Lots of sports
  • Hip surgery
  • A fall on the hip

Where is the pain in your hip(s)?

Perhaps you have identified the cause. Of course, it doesn't matter if this doesn't work, because there are professionals who can help you with this. Before you visit the physiotherapist, try to feel where you mainly feel the pain in the hip after exercise. Is this at the front of your hip? Deep in your groin? Or do you feel the pain more on the side? The location of the pain is extremely useful to know because it makes it easier to determine a cause.

Work with a physical therapist and make the pain go away

There is a good chance that hip pain can be resolved after exercise. For this it is best to work with a physiotherapist from Fysi Tilburg. We offer various treatments that can reduce or completely eliminate the pain. The best treatment we can offer largely depends on the cause of your hip pain. That is why our physio would first like to meet you to determine the cause of the pain. Based on that we may podiatry, sports physiotherapy or physiotherapy for hip osteoarthritis recommend.
