Pain in right hip
Pain started in lateral side of lower back 20 days ago. Took pain killers and was ok. But without painkillers, the pain resurfaced in lower back as well as in the pelvis. X-ray, MRI no anomalies. Doctor says it's a normal muscle spasm, but the pain is taking too long. Any specific exercise I need to do?

If it's a normal spasm physiotherapy will work. Go for physiotherapy and get your piriformis and hamstring muscles checked for tightness. Sometime they leads to this kind of pain. SWD, US therapy and IFT will help you better then painkillers.

Hello there,,,well yes it is most probably a muscle spasm...and you may not be getting adequate rest from work or commute hence...it may not be healing at the pace it should....... you would be definately all right with 5 Physio settings of SWD and IFT vector for 20 mins at the affected area.....without any topical gel application.
Next Steps
Visit a nearest Physiotherapy Clinic or a hospital based physio OPD.
Health Tips
Take rest till the pain subsides to 20% of what it was when it started....and exercises should be commensed only when pain has decreased considerably. do resort back with any furthur queries. Regards & take care.
