Hip pain

Postby Johan » Sep 07, 2004 03:48

Hi,

I wonder if someone can help me with a problem I have. When I perform a side kick stretch or back kick with my right leg I get a gradual pain in the hip in the leg I'm standing on (the left side of the hip). The pain increases the more times I do the move.
It doesn't hurt much when I am at the top of the kick but more on the way down.
The pain is located on the front of the hip joint, right beside the genitals. This pain begun a few weeks ago but it feels like it is getting worse.
I was thinking that I have become much more flexible in the hip the last months and I was wondering if that has anything to do with it...that the muscles haven't got enough strength to decelerate the leg on the way down...
Any thoughts or ideas?

Thanks

I would go see a doctor who is familiar with sports injuries. S/he will be able to do a much better job of diagnoising the problem than any of us could without seeing you.

No one likes to go to the doctor but I think the fact that you've had this for weeks and that it's getting worse is an indiciation that it's not going to go away on its own.

Thanks for the reply,

I've rested for about a week and it has become better but it's still not gone so I'll go to a doctor.
