    Recurring Hip Pain

    Post by PCNQtrack on Sun Nov 23, 2008 1:32 am

    Planned on a long run today. 4 miles in i was forced to walk for 100 ft. by a sharp pain in hip while running, hurts to apply pressure with fingers as well. This is something that has bothered me before. It always seems to go away after a day or two...anyone know what it might be?

    Are you resting it? Or does it just go away?

    I used to always get bad hip pains (it felt like a really bad bruise) on my right hip only, after fast/hard runs until I started doing hip stretches/strengthening exercises. you might wanna try those to get rid of it. i use the ones that they have on the RW injury and prevention section.

    I don't know much about hip pain but last year for a week or two my hip flexer hurt but it went away on its own. It wasn't like a OMG this hurts pain but more of a annoying, doesn't really slow you down, pain.

    Heres a link to a site with strengh training and stretches for your hip flexor http://www.myfit.ca/exercisedatabase/search.asp?muscle=Hip%20Flexor

    You probably already do, but ice it. It won't solve anything but it may help.

    Your hips are weak.
    Do some squats and such after the pain is gone.
