labral hip tear anyone?

Self diagnosing here, so bear with me. All the symptoms seem to match up...

Last couple of weeks my left hip has been really sore - its a 'deep' soreness, it feels like its in the upper-middle part of my left butt cheek. It hurts more when I sit down. It also gets VERY sore after a weekend of riding.

Did some poking around the intrawebs and I think I might have a labral hip tear. I've got a doc's appointment scheduled later this week but wanted to throw this out there and see if anyone has had this type of issue and if so, what'd you do to fix it?

My daughter is a Nationally ranked sprinter and long jumper (doesn't have anything to do with anything, just bragging) and last year she jumped in the pit, landed awckwardly and tore her gluteous minimus muscle. It's right in the area you're talking about. It took about 6 months to heal. Try stretching and a foam roller. That really helped her out.

What did you do to injure yourself? Labreal tears are more felt in the joint itself and the groin (I thought)

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.

I might be way out to lunch but that sounds more like sciatica to me. Anyway the doc should be able to tell you. Let them diagnose you!

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.

My daughter said it felt like it needed to "pop" too. I took her to a chiro a few times and that didn't do much. It wasn't until she rested, stretched (specific stretches for that injury) and did the foam roller that it started to heal. Good luck!

squatting....yeah, that makes my hip joints hurt thinking about it. I can do it but I got to be careful. My hips actually will pop if I do something that angers them. It hurts, I don't reccomend it!

I want to be 16 but know what I know now.

Actually I think somewhere between 18-22 was best for me... Old enough to enjoy life and have money, not old enough to hurt too much or have too many responsibilities...
