Was playing tennis about a week ago when after making an aggressive/quick movement I felt/heard a pop in my upper right hip area. Mildly painful at that moment, but not debilitating, so I played through it without further aggravation. The area was a little sore over the next several days, but seemed to be settling down, and was generally not aggravated by normal daily movements, or hiking, biking or inline skating.
If I palpate the area there's a very specific pain point just under the crown of the iliac crest, it corresponds more or less slightly above and forward of the black dot at the end of the line coming from Gluteus medius in the bottom picture...
It feels like something that's connected to the bone, but I don't know anatomy well enough to say what exactly. Perhaps the tensor fascia latae, or the top of the ITB?
Unfortunately experienced another "pop" today, again playing tennis, this time I noticed when making an aggressive lateral move to my left. I'm probably gonna go in and see someone, (which will probably involve a Doc visit first in order to get to PT), as I want to nip/reverse this problem before it gets any worse, but I'm curious if anyone here has been through this, and, if so, what you did to deal with it? Rest, ice, heat, stretching, ??
Any feedback appreciated.
