It depends: Hi, really you need to know what your hip pain is from before considering what supplements will treat pain. However, I am going to generalize and let's consider one of the most common causes of hip pain...Osteoarthritis. Oa is usually seen in middle and old age, I do not know your age. Supplements to consider include: chondroitin, glucosamine, msm, turmeric, and ginger. None of these are proved.
