Question: Having Muscles related Hip Pain. Both hips are locked and cannot stand weight on my left leg because of hip pain. The right foot is giving trouble from overuse.
Locked hips can be caused by a lot of factors like osteoarthritis, tendinitis, labral tear, muscle strain or spasm, among other conditions. Before engaging in any exercise program, it is best that you know what is causing your hip to lock. Having said this, you may need to have your hips assessed by a doctor for accurate diagnosis so that appropriate exercises can be prescribed. We would also like to suggest that you try pool or aquatic therapy. When you exercise in the pool there are plenty of benefits:
- The water's warm temperature, helps your muscles relax.
- The effect of buoyancy helps decrease the amount of weight or stress on your joints. This gives relief to your affected weight-bearing joints.
- You can use the water's resistance to strengthen your muscles, but you'll notice it is a lot easier to move there than on land.
- Training in the pool helps improve your strength, endurance and flexibility. Walking, stationary drills like squats, lunges, etc. are some of the exercises done in the pool.
