Combating hip pain

I work a rather physical job, that is made unbearable during flare-ups. My hips are affected particularly hard. Does anyone have any suggestions or tips for strengthening the hip joints or ways to deal with the pain?

  1. Hi , thanks for reaching out. I can hear how difficult this must be for you. While I hope our community members will chime in with their tips, I am sending you an article from one of our advocates that talks about her hip issues. I hope this can help.

    1. hi there! Dealing with hip pain while working a physical job seems like it would be very hard. I just wanted to chime in and mention that I shared your question with members over on our Facebook. They shared some things that work for them. If you're interested in taking a look, here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/PsoriaticArthritisDotCom/posts/1318301705222350. Best, Minel (Team Member)

      1. I, too, have suffered periodic episodes of hip pain, and even snapping hip syndrome. The absolute best thing for me was physical therapy. A good program will identify where the muscle weakness and imbalance is, and help strengthen where you need it most. You can look up exercises online, but truthfully, having someone work hands on with you will provide you the best outcome. -luck
