In brief: Exercise
Most of hip pains are due to osteoarthritis.
Over-weightiness and inactivity make hip-pain worse. Back-strengthening exercises and losing weight are helpful. Taking pain-killer should be the last resort. However, when the pain is severe and/or interferes with the lifestyle, it is wise to consider hip replacement surgery. If pain persists please consult a physician.
