Hip pain can occur for many reasons – the most common is injury, like sprains and strains, but medical conditions like arthritis can also cause significant hip pain.
In general, if you have no experience of recent injury and the hip pain is unexpected, it’s a good idea to consult a doctor. Various medical conditions can cause hip pain, which is why it’s important to know as soon as possible whether your situation is serious or not.

Hip Pain FAQs
One of the less common symptoms of COVID-19 are “aches and pains”, but there is no confirmation on whether COVID-19 causes hip pain. Some patients report experiencing a tingling/boiling pain in and along the back of their legs, but pain in the hips is uncommon. It is unknown whether this is a symptom of COVID-19. If the hip pain persists, consult your doctor.
Depending on your condition, it might help to put a pillow between your knees to keep your hips aligned. Doing this can reduce pain and swelling in the affected area.
Yes, it can. Often, hip pain is a result of overuse, injury, or lack of exercise. But sometimes, hip pain can also be a sign of serious conditions like arthritis, cancer, or a pinched nerve.
If your hip pain is a result of overuse or injury (like a sprain), then it might help to use the RICE method for treating soft tissue injuries. RICE stands for Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate — (1) rest the affected area, keeping it free from pressure, (2) apply an ice pack, (3) wrap the area in an elastic bandage, and (4) elevate your legs above the level of your heart to relieve pressure from the hips. All of these can contribute towards reducing your hip’s pain and swelling.
