Hip pain? ITB??????
After about 6 months of waiting to see if the pain in my hip will go away I have decided to get it checked out.
The waiting time for Physio is about 12 weeks (3 months!!!!!!!!) and so in mean time I am trying to figure out what it might be. Anybody got any ideas???????
The pain is on the inside of my hip bone. It’s very specific, if I push an area about a cm it hurts alot.
It is light jogging that hurts it, but not at the time. When I say light I mean jogging 2 mins down the road not miles!!I feel no pain while I jog or shortly after, but within a few hours it becomes painful even to walk.
I had found on another site some information on the Quadratus lumborum muscle, this apparently runs from your hip to your rib and has the job of lifting your hip. All the symtoms seem to match.
BUT….I just looked up some info on the ITB band. This appears to cause pain the knee, (which I do suffer if I jog for longer, but I as I am not a jogger it very rarely bothers me!)
What I am wondering is could the pain in my hip be caused by this band?
It appears to join to the hip at about the right place, and the stretch you do for that injury pulls directly where my hip hurts?????
Should I try doing this stretch?
Obviously only gently, and as far as it goes without too much pain.
