Hi forum. I have recently started up back at the gym. Its been one week now since i started back. I have to get fit again as i have been off due to injury. But every time i run on the treadmill i get pains in my hips. Should i start taking glucosamine tablets to help oil my joints so to speak? or will it go away in time?

@Serenacutie7,
I don't know, either. If you have the right problem, the stuff is a wonder drug. Otherwise, I believe it to be harmless, unless money is an issue.

In the case of someone who is just out of condition, I doubt it would help at all. I also don't think it would be helpful in recovering from injury. If you do try it, you will need to take it for six or eight weeks before it takes effect - if it does.

@Serenacutie7,
Many of us have suffered the same sort of pains (hips, and knees) after a recent return to exercise. I stopped using glucosamine and chondroitin because for me they didn't do anything to help me except causing my wallet to have weight loss.

Frankly, I found that just keeping at doing regular exercise and doing yoga stretches far more useful in the long run. Dance and tai-chi helped, too.

There is no need to get panic, it hapens every time when ever you overcomes from any kind of insury. Thre is no need to take any kind of supplements.
Are you using Motarized Treadmill or Mannual Treadmill.

This an old inactive thread. Perhaps in the future you might want to check timestamps. This one is a 4-yr-old thread. You won't get a reply from the person that posted as he's been off the forum for 4 yrs.

@Serenacutie7,
Humans, like every other primate, are not built to run. Is causes no end of injuries and maladies.

@HesDeltanCaptain,
That is misguided malarkey. Why would you think to write such nonsense?
Many people have run as an exercise for decades with little in the way of health or other skeletal problems. Also, FYI, many primates run a lot of the time...some also swing through trees..but I digress

Mankind probably wasn't ideally designed to run repeated ultra-marathons and marathons. I would give you that point. Eventually that sort of running can cause health issues..mainly in some joint breakdowns. However, running reasonable distances can be and IS very successful without causing undue stress and disability. Your way out of your depth here.

Once again, apparently you haven't looked at the date stamp nor read the previous posts. The person to whom your addressing, the OP, has been off the site for 4 years so you're not going to get a reply from her.

Never run with a pot on your head, however.

@George,
It's not a pot, it's a strainer! I needed something to protect my keep me from gamma rays.

Also when I do run with it on my head, I have zero strain.

@Ragman,
Zero strain?
It can't be much of a strainer, then!

@ossobuco,
Speaking for myself, I track my kitchen workouts in pounds, not miles.
And I ain't providing numbers.

@George,
I know, my kitchen only lets me keep doing footsie stuff, which I never remember to do.

As you know, I love that you still run.

@ossobuco,
Thank you, but these days "run" is an overstatement.
I jog and am happy to still be able to do it.

Don't be panic and do regular exercise and consult with your doctor to take some kind of quality medications which will help you to get rid of this problem.
