    I've been suffering hip pain for a few years and am currently in physiotherapy and under investigation by orthopaedics so will hopefully get to the root of it eventually (I'm scheduled in for a MRI hip arthrogram which should hold some answers.)

    Anyway, I am here to ask if anyone has any good forms of exercise that won't cause hip pain?

    Running is the worst, I usually can't walk for the next two days after I've run at the gym, and swimming also aggravates it as well. I've Highland Danced for nearly 16 years but that's also a no no.

    I really want to get trim and fit, but the problems in my hips are making it very difficult to do so! Any suggestions?

    Try some cycling if you havent already. Also do some weights exercises for upper body, your hip should be fine doing this and it's a great calorie burner.

    Not really sure how I would use sports tape on my hip?? I used it after I fractured my ankle (I was shown how to use it by a physiotherapist) but not sure how I would bind it up around my hip area?

    Ahhh, I might give some cycling a go actually! That's something I've never really tried...Also, never really even considered doing weights, I've always been after the cardio. Maybe now would be a good time to take it up? Do you mean just lifting weights etc.?

    Yep try some weight exercises such as shoulder press, bench press etc. If you want to train for endurance then do low weight high reps. Don't worry about getting huge muscles, you won't as youre testosterone levels are far lower than males( assuming youre female) also try some core exercises such as planks, crunches, leg raises etc as long as they don't hurt. Good luck!

    Thanks very much for the advice! Will this still help me burn adequate calories? I find it difficult to imagine losing weight doing weights rather than cardio? Though saying this, I've never really done non-cardio exercise so don't have much to compare it to.

    Yes, lifting weights is a great calorie burner (it's pretty much interval training). I find its far more enjoyable than long slow cardio too. You can easily burn 300-400 calories in a 45-60 min lifting session without completely exhausting yourself. Also, for a day or two after your session, your body will burn many more calories repairing muscle tissue, much more so than long slow cardio. Ideally a mixture of cardio, core work and lifting will be very beneficial. Just use trial and error until you find exercises that don't hurt. But remember that diet is more important than exercise when losing weight.
