Sports is good for you. It is a form of relaxation, you can put all your thoughts in a row and it will make you fitter. However, pain in the hip after exercise is a problem. It is certainly not the intention to get pain by moving a lot (muscle pain is of course completely fine). What is the best thing to do if these pain complaints arise? The sports physiotherapist of Fysi Tilburg explains everything about pain in your hips.
What Causes Hip Pain After Exercise?
Rest assured, you're certainly not the only one who sometimes experiences hip pain after exercise. It is important to determine the cause of the pain. As soon as you know the cause of your hip complaints, you can tackle it in a targeted manner. There is a good chance that you are not a doctor or physiotherapist yourself. But you can check with yourself from when you started to suffer from pain and with which movements this pain gets worse. Causes that can result in pain in your hips include:
- Leg length difference
- Inflammation of the joint in the hip
- Osteoarthritis of the hip
- (too) much sports
- Hip surgery
- A fall on the hip
Where is the pain in your hip(s)?
You may have identified the cause. Of course it is not a problem if this does not work, because there are professionals who can help you with this. Before you visit the physiotherapist, try to feel where you feel the pain in the hip most after exercise. Is this on the front of your hip? Deep in your groin? Or do you feel the pain more on the side? Knowing the location of the pain is extremely helpful as it makes it easier to pinpoint a cause.
Work with a physical therapist and let the pain go away
There is a good chance that the pain in the hip can be resolved after exercise. For this it is best to work together with a physiotherapist from Fysi Tilburg. We offer various treatments, which can reduce the pain to disappear completely. Which treatment we can offer best depends largely on the cause of your hip pain. That is why our physio would like to meet you first to find out the cause of your pain. Based on that, we may podiatry, sports physiotherapy or physiotherapy for hip osteoarthritis recommend. By doing targeted exercises and possibly wearing insoles, you relieve the pain enormously. This way you can (most likely) move and exercise pain-free again!
