Hip pain


Treatment of hip pain requires managing the symptoms of the pain and treating its underlying cause.

Ayurveda recommends a general line of treatment for all pains related to Vata dosha. These include:

  • Snehana (oleation) – administering ghee, herbal oil, animal fat or bone marrow to expel the imbalanced dosha out of the body
  • Swedana (fomentation) – application of hot, moist substances to heal pain

Additionally, Ayurveda also recommends a combination of healthy diet (ahar) and lifestyle changes (vihar) in order to manage hip pain effectively. These include:

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

  • Consume diet that helps strengthen your joints and bones. Some foods include eggs, chicken soup, meat, fish, lentils, paneer, curd, milk, etc
  • Increase intake of healthy foods such as nuts and seeds
  • Avoid carbonated drinks, packaged foods and junk food

Lifestyle changes (Vihar)

  • Avoid putting pressure on the injured hip
  • Give adequate rest to your body, especially your hips
  • Use an ice pack to give relief to your hip from pain and swelling. Hold the ice pack in the affected area for about 15 minutes a couple of times a day
  • If you also have arthritis, exercising the hip joint with low impact exercise, stretching exercises and do resistance training as they will help reduce pain and improve joint mobility
  • Physiotherapy under expert guidance may also be beneficial
