Pain Management
In brief: Depends on cause
By 'hip' do you mean actual hip joint (=groin pain), lateral bruising or muscle strain?Posterior hip (buttock or sacroiliac joint pain)?Pelvic crest pain?All are commonly called 'hip.
'so, location is important to know, then you must define type of injury (crush, bruise, tear, fracture, etc.)a good history & physical by your doc & osteopathic hands-on exam may define the cause & lead to pain relief.
