Hip Injury Pain — 4 Comments

  1. I am suffering from a Bowling “Injury” and trying to get the pain resolved. After Bowling in a Tournament my left Gluteus Maximus near the Groin, I can feel a Tendon that is extremely tight. The pain goes the entire Length of my left leg affecting the Calve and Thigh. It feels ok when walking but after sitting for long periods of time it is difficult to stand and feels like my left knee wants to give out. I have tried Ibuprofen and other pain killers without any help, sports creams and taking vitamins. I am a avid skier and Hiker. I literally feels like there is a tendon that runs the entire length of my left leg to my ankle, being the discomfort and pain travels the entire length. Can anyone assist in resolving this???

    • Hello,
      I am not a doctor, so I am just making a suggestion. It sounds like a possible hamstring injury. You need to talk to a sports injury specialist.
      Thanks for stopping by, I wish I could be of more help.

  2. I have to say, this article is very well-written…despite me not being remotely close to the age of sore hips and joints, I found myself continuing to read it.

    My mother, unfortunately, has a disease called “relapsing polychondritis”, which is an auto-immune disease. Don’t worry, it’s not fatal…it just means her body, unless treated with certain medications, eats away at her own cartilage. This causes bones to rub against each other with no padding, which has resulted in her development of Rheumatoid Arthritis (not sure if spelled right) at age 39.

    I actually bookmarked this page because exercises like this may be useful later on when her disease begins to worsen.

    Thanks for the informative article, and keep up the good work!

    • Hi Goff,
      Thanks for the compliment.It is not fun dealing with problems as we get older and problems caused by disease.Arthritis is a nasty crippling disease that robs people of the normal activities of living.More and more research is helping with medications and better treatments and making it possible for people to do things that were next to impossible a few years ago. I hope your mother finds the exercises beneficial, and they give her pain relief and flexibility. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, and if you have any other questions feel free to ask.
