Suggest treatment for hip pain

default
Posted on Mon, 21 Apr 2014
Question: I had a massage on Friday, it seemed sort of painful, more than ever before. On sunday evening, my muscles on my left side behind my left hip started hurting really bad. By the end of the evening, it hurt to walk. I went to my Chiro at my gym, he adjusted me, applied ice and TENS stimulation. He told me to apply ice regularly, and keep him up on my progress. It feels a little better. But still hurts. Any suggestions? or thoughts?

Brief Answer: it seems to be muscular injury. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing your query. After reading your post, it seems that the massage has caused muscular injury resulting in pain. You should give rest to yourself. For severe pain you can take painkiller like Ibuprofen twice daily after meals along with a muscle relaxant like Chloroxazone and an antacid like Omeprazole 40mg once a day. Hot fomentation and application of pain relieving gel locally will be helpful. I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help. Regards. Thanks.
