Tips to Prevent/TREAT YOUR INJURY:
If your pain pain is severe, bed rest may be needed, but if at all possible it should not be more than a day. we have loads of great advice on good sleeping posture here
Avoid high impact activities but start light activities as soon as you can, such as short walks. Slow movement is good! Take smaller strides than normal!
Try to do most of the normal things you do at work and at home except heavy lifting or twisting may need to be modified.
Posture is very important. When you are sitting or standing, have your shoulders relaxed back and you should feel tall. Good posture allows your muscles and joints to work effectively. When sitting, sit in a hard chair not the couch! Ideally with a rolled up towel in the small of your back for support. Don’t cross your legs with a hip injury!
Avoid long periods of sitting or standing. Regularly change position and stretch, or get up and move frequently.
