Sore Hip Rx?

Many of you know I was experiencing some pretty significant knee problems last spring. I went to physical therapy for a while and my PT explained that the problem was actually my hip which was not aligned correctly and the pain was manifesting down the kinetic chain in my knee. She had me do some closed chain exercises and of course, I got orthotics.
I've had my orthotics since June and I'm pretty well used to them at this point. My knee pain has pretty much subsided although I do tend to get inflamed bursas fairly frequently. What I'm noticing now is that when I do long bouts of cardio, I get sore in the hip that was misaligned. DH and I hiked for about 2 hours on Saturday and my hip has been rather sore ever since. My friend and I walk his dogs usually every week and it's about 4 miles/one hour of walking at a pretty brisk pace and I'm usually somewhat sore after that.
I am stretching it and I foam-rolled it this morning. I think that helped but it's still pretty sore (and it's just the one side).
Any thoughts or suggestions? I figure I'm probably doing what I can do for a sore muscle but thought I'd ask. Thanks!
