WATCH: How To Manage Hip Pain At Night

Many of my patients say that nighttime can be the biggest challenge when it comes to sleeping with hip pain. When you sleep, it puts direct pressure on your hips, which can exacerbate conditions like arthritis, bursitis, and tendonitis.

Use these tips to get a good night’s sleep with hip pain ⤵️

🌿 Lie flat on your back or sleep on your side with a pillow between your knees

🌿 Use a body cushion for extra support

🌿 Apply hot or cold therapy. Use an ice pack or heating pad for 15-20 minutes

🌿 Do gentle hip stretches and opt for low-impact exercises daily

🌿 Try swimming or yoga to strengthen your hips

🌿 Keep your room cool, dark and dis

traction-free when you sleep

🌿 Evaluate your mattress: Memory foam can reduce sleep pressure


If the pain persists, be sure to see your GP or private hip pain specialist to investigate the pain so you can get back to sleeping soundly.
