There are several issues. The first is whether the pain is coming from your true hip joint or is related to your back or soft tissues such as a trochanteric bursa. The second is whether there contnues to be active inflammation in the hip. Lastly, is there degeneration of the joint. In general, non-weight bearing or low impact exercise is good for joints to maintain muscle tone and range of motion. As always, common sense should prevail.
Pain in my Hip
I have a pain in my left hip and take 75 SR Voltaren for it, one tablet a day just holds me. Should I rest the joint more or is more activity better. I used to have RA but are in remission right now. The pain in my hip joint occured after some heavy lifting earlier this year.
