First Aid for Hip Pain
Either the joint or the bursa are inflamed. To cool it down use a cold pack. Wrap a cold pack (a bag of frozen peas works well) in a couple of tea towels and place it over the area of pain for 20 minutes only. Put it back in the freezer for at least an hour to allow your skin to recover, then repeat. If the cold pack is too cold for comfort, put another tea towel around it. This will help. Don’t use heat. If you are taking medication for the pain, it will be an anti-inflammatory drug – to cool things down. If you use the medication with heat, you will be cancelling one out with the other! Use a cold pack to enhance the effect of the medication.
