hip pain and massageWhether you just have a little hip ache, hip bursitis, or a hip injury, pain in any hip area can halt an active lifestyle.

What causes hip pain? The location of your hip pain gives valuable clues about the underlying cause. If you have pain on the inside of your hip or your groin, there’s a good chance your problem is within the hip joint itself. However, most hip pain tends to show up on the outside of your hip, upper thigh, or outer buttock. Pain in hip these areas is usually caused by problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other soft tissues that surround your hip joint.

A common diagnosis is tendonitis of the hip, which can develop after injury to the area coupled with too much sitting. Doctors will usually just tell you to stretch and not to drive anymore until it goes away. Not only is this recommendation not practical, it doesn’t help you get back to your active lifestyle as soon as you want, if ever. This can be why many people live with nagging hip pain for years.

ART and deep-tissue massage can completely relieve hip pain and soft-tissue hip injury

Deep-tissue massage combined with Active Release Techniques has proven to be the “Gold Standard” of soft-tissue injury. In 90% of the cases, it completely relieves a soft-tissue problem because it breaks up knots and scar tissue, and “smooths” the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This release allows soft-tissue to relax, realign, and move normally again.

In most cases, common hip pain can be resolved in a handful of treatments. Since most hip pain, including pain from tendonitis, is caused by soft-tissue injury or adhesions (tissue adhering to other tissue) deep-tissue massage combined with Active Release Techniques is one of the best ways to eliminate the source of the problem and therefore, eliminate hip pain.

After only a few treatments, the aching in the hip area fades. After a few more treatments, depending on the severity of the soft-tissue injury, most people experience complete relief from pain and their hip problem is eliminated.

According to the Mayo Clinic, you may not need to see a doctor for most hip pain, especially if your pain is minor. Usually a doctor will prescribe anti-inflammatory drugs and tell you to rest the area. Definitely see a doctor if you are experiencing:

  • A hip joint appears deformed
  • Inability to move your leg or hip
  • Inability to bear weight on the affected leg
  • Extremely intense pain
  • Sudden swelling

But for all other types of hip pain, try deep-tissue massage combined with Active Release Techniques since it relieves hip pain completely in 90% of the cases.
