Can stretching help hip pain? Gently stretching and exercising the hips can help relieve pain, increase mobility, and strengthen muscles.
How do you stretch your hip if it hurts? Lay on your back with your legs bent and feet flat on the ground. Place your right ankle on your left knee, loop your hands around the back of your left leg, and draw it toward your chest. Feel the stretch in your glute and hip.
What is the fastest way to relieve hip pain? Another way to relieve hip pain is by holding ice to the area for about 15 minutes a few times a day. Try to rest the affected joint as much as possible until you feel better. You may also try heating the area. A warm bath or shower can help ready your muscle for stretching exercises that can lessen pain.
