I have been getting hip pain when i stand on one log and put oressure on it and when i walk, i recently participated in a lacrosse tournament which the pain started after it. I believe the pain is from all the running but how do i make it go away?

Depends what's wrong. Rest and anti inflammatory medicine to start with and if no better after a week or 2 see a doctor.....would be what I would do.

I find an ice pack helps.

Does it sound like it could be your IT band? Google it but for me it's like an ache that starts in hip and goes all down leg. Roll on a tennis ball or hard tube (they have them at my gym) - it's amazing, really sore but works really well. Also had physio for it and lying on the non-sore side and doing leg raises raising the top leg helps too.
