Hip trouble- please help!
I’ve posted before about my hip problems, which my sports medicine doctor diagnosed as snapping hip syndrome. I had been experencing a “popping-out” sensation in my hip as well as pain. I ended up having to quit track and stick to doing an eliptical and bike for a few weeks then I returned to running about three weeks ago after recieving a pair of orthotics to correct my flat feet. My podiatrsit said that the fact that my flat feet were causing my hip to be not alligned properly was what was causing the problem. I have been able to run three days a week for about 45-50 minutes without any pain when I strech my hips really well and take a prescription anti-inflamatory before hand. However, yesterday I when I went running the aching returned. However, I did not feel the “popping” sensation. Instead, my hips felt very weak and achy–not really painful if that makes any sense. I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice as to what else I could be doing to prevent this problem, I’ve done pretty much all I can think of as far–icing, streching, cross-training, ect. Any advice would be much appreciated!!
