I have really messed up hips, I used to be really flexible as a kid and waaay over did the crazy splits and crap. I did matial arts and attemtped to dance not to mention other stupid shit. As an adult I made things much worse running--I ran for the last time in 2007 I when fucked my shit up for good during a half marathon lol
anyway, do your hip joints click or lock up? Or that have "snapping" feeling if you do leg lifts? Do you get pain when putting all your weight on one leg? Like excruciating "Id die if the house was on fire cos I can't walk" pain if you sit cross legged too long?
You have a few options for most hip injuries. Drugs
Physical Thearapy and last resort hip resurfacing (Im hoping to avoid that but it aint looking good)
In the mean time be careful and don't do things that exacerbate the problem. Like for me that means no running, no cross legged sitting and I do yoga. It helps.
Not really sure what I could have done although part of me thinks it was from squatting. I had one or two "weird" squats last week and I think it started then. The soreness has gradually gotten worse.
It feels like it need to "pop" it but it doesn't pop. I've tried cranking around my hips a bunch but...nothing.
I did yoga last night actually and it felt almost 100% better when I was done with the class. Woke up this morning and now its really sore, so I'm hoping its a muscle/tendon thing.
God, to be 16 again...I feel so old and crusty.
