You should avoid high impact activities such as running or jumping.
A healthy and active lifestyle will help maintain strong muscles around the hip joint to stabilize the joint and will help maintain joint mobility. Symptoms are more likely to get worse in sedentary and overweight individuals due to muscle wasting and the extra weight on the hip joint.
We would recommend low impact exercises for maintaining cardiovascular fitness such as swimming, walking and cycling. Weight control is important in those who are obese or overweight. Using a walking stick or wearing shoes with shock-absorbing soles can also help to take the pressure off your hip joint.
