The Benefits of Massage Therapy for Chronic Hip Pain

Hip pain can be some of the worst joint pain a person can experience, and chronic hip pain can greatly limit your movement as well. Hip pain massage therapy can get you back on your feet, and provides long-lasting relief, no matter the cause of your pain.

What Causes Hip Pain?

Pain in and around the hip joint can have a number of different causes. The cause often contributes to the severity and exact type of pain. Because of the pivotal role of our hips in movement, the joint is one of the strongest as well as the largest in the body. Our hips obviously help us to walk, but they're also involved in movements like sitting and standing.

Despite the hip's ability to withstand repeated motion, it does not mean that it is resistant to injury. It can even become injured from overuse, just like any other joint. Age will also take its toll on the hips. The cartilage is worn down from repetitive movements over prolonged amounts of time, and the muscles and tendons can be injured too. The hip bone may also be broken in car or other types of accidents and falls.

Sometimes your hip pain may not even be the result of an injury to your actual hip. Some back injuries, as well as groin injuries like hernias, tend to result in pain that manifests largely in your hips. Arthritis is another typical cause of hip pain, just as it causes pain in your other joints. A person's hip pain may increase with activity, especially if arthritis is the cause. Other people report increased pain at night. The pain may also only occur when in certain positions like sitting or laying in a specific way.
The Benefits of Massage Therapy for Chronic Hip Pain
Hip pain massage therapy can help no matter the cause. The type of massage treatment you receive will depend on the type of pain you're experiencing. Recovering from a hip injury often requires low impact exercises to help maintain mobility of the joint. This can be a struggle, though, due to pain associated with the injury.

Massage Therapy can help to lessen the pain dramatically, making exercising the joint much easier and quickening the healing process. Massage also causes the body to release chemicals that speed healing and help fight infection as well - the latter is very important if you are recovering from any sort of hip surgery.
Types of Hip Pain

Depending on the cause of your hip pain, your symptoms may vary slightly. The pain can actually be in your thigh bone near your hip, for example. Some other types of hip pain include:
  • inside the hip joint
  • outside and around the hip joint
  • groin pain
  • pain in the buttocks
  • radiating pain down the leg
Hip pain may sometimes also be accompanied by inflammation in the hip area, as well as decreased mobility and stiffness. It may become harder and harder to move your joint, or the pain itself may make movement difficult.

Over-the-counter and prescription pain relief medications are common ways to treat hip pain. Some medications only serve to dull the pain; their effects are usually very short-term, and they also come with potentially dangerous side-effects. Regular sessions of massage therapy for hip pain can provide long-lasting pain relief. A professional massage therapist uses massage techniques to make the body release all-natural and safe pain-relieving neurochemicals. Serotonin is one of these chemicals, and it also leaves a patient feeling more relaxed. After a session, patients feel better all-around and have an increased sense of well-being.

Massage is a viable arthritis treatment for any affected joints in the body. Massage also helps reduce the inflammation caused by arthritis and increases mobility, too. Even if your range of motion has been severely impacted by your condition, you can begin to get it back with the help of regular massage.
