hip flexor

Post by Buckyx on Wed Mar 16, 2016 5:12 am

hi I have hurted my hip flexor 2 weeks ago, fell from handstand on 1 leg which slipped backwards.. I guess overstretch or pulled muscle but it has weird behavior

I can walk, run with a bit of discomfort only but when I raise my knee then lower it down without control(if I lower my leg while holding it slowly then its not a problem) I will experience pain and then it persists for a long time and I cant straighten my legs.. I can do back hyperextions, lift leg behind torso or reverse leg lifts so it shouldnt be problem with extending but i dont get if hip flexor is injured I can raise leg without pain and problem is only with lowering,opening hips...

same happens when I hang on bar, Iget from bar but it needs to straighten that leg so if I am not careful it starts to hurt


or when lying on back often I cant open hips(place foot on ground) with tucked knee

I know I should visit physioterapist if it wont get better but any hints on what could happen when I injured it or what might cause the problems? I guess if it was a torn I would feel pain all the time

I think this is exactly what happens
Snapping of the iliopsoas tendon may be elicited as the hip is brought from a flexed, abducted, externally rotated position into extension with internal rotation.

I doubt you snapped a tendon otherwise uou would have swelling and pain. Probly just irritated or micro tore the joint n tendons. Lots of fish oils and vits.

Perhaps try temperature contrasts to determine which one feels better for it (if not both in an alternating fashion)

I feel sensation there after heating, I did like hour or two before going to bed and woke up and that felt better than usual

I will try some hip flexor stretches how it will react, did stretches for other hip muscles only but for some I had to get in position that was either very hard to get there due to weakness or caused pain

Google trigger point therapy, there's a website where you can look it up for free. The pain in your hip flexor might be actually coming from a trigger point in a different muscle group. By working on trigger points, you can often completely rehab painful injuries in a couple of weeks.

Stretching could help, but it could also aggravate things.
