  • I'd recommend going to a physical therapist. I had a pain in my hip a few years ago and would walk in for PT bent over, and when I left I was upright. I've had PT for shoulder and neck problems too and am very pleased with the results.

  • Have you talked to your dr? i have sciatica ( its where the sciatic nerve is pinched and causes pain in the hip/bottom area.) I wasnt able to do anything while pregnant. Then after I had my son, my dr. sent me to a chiropractor and to physical therapy... but nothing has helped. I am still in pain, and now i am pregnant again. My dr. told me i can use a heating pad for 5-10 min. at a time. does it feel like it catches??
