Hip Flexor/Groin Pain
Well where do i start….
About 5 weeks ago i developed a pain/ache in my hip flexor area. This happened during a week off work. I dont remember doing anything that would cause this pain & it didnt appear through a strain that i would remember. I noticed it whilst trying to get up from sitting on the floor, it was aching & had been aching throughout the day, but when i got up, i got a sharp jab of pain from the hipflexor area. This has since then persisted for the last five weeks & doesnt seem to be getting any better.
I work as a Fitness Instructor and teach Step, Body Pump and Spinning. I can feel it whilst teaching step, body pump i have only felt the whole hip get tighter these last few weeks and i dont feel it at all during spinning.
When getting in to the car, i find it more comfortable to assist my leg in and out as i can feel it pulling while i do so.
Whilst sitting, i can push on the tendons in my hipflexor area and thats where im feeling the pain but it aches in my adductor muscle and outer hip area. Pulling my knees together i experience pain.
Whislt laying on the floor stretching i cannot do a hip stretch without feeling discomfort and also bringing the knees in to the chest is where i feel pain the most. During some abductor moves i get a clicking sound inthe hip which also causes discomfort.
Any ideas as to what i have done, what i need to do to treat it and how long will it take to heal?? Cheers
