Maintain a Healthy Weight
Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight can help lessen stress on the hips. Being overweight puts more pressure on your hips and can cause discomfort, especially in older adults with weak bones and muscle wasting. So, if you notice that you’ve been gaining weight as you age, it is a good idea to talk to your doctor to know what is a healthy weight for your height, age, and activity level.
Overweight and obesity do not only cause hip pain but also predispose to other chronic health diseases. Thus, eating healthily and exercising for weight loss is not only an aesthetic recommendation for younger audiences. It is also recommended for grown-ups.
