The tendons that attach our thighs to the bone of our hips are often overused, which can cause them to become inflamed – this is known as tendonitis. This is especially common in runners or cyclists, who put a lot of pressure on these tendons with every movement.
If you are experiencing hip tendonitis, try to limit the amount of time you spend standing and increase your low-impact activities like swimming or cycling. Try not to push yourself too hard when exercising because this can aggravate the condition. Enrolling in a physiotherapy program may be a good idea, which will allow you to focus on form and range of motion while your body is in recovery.
