Hip or groin sprain?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

2 years ago when walking up hill fast and with long steps I sort of got some pain in my L butt/hip.

2 weeks ago did a real good fall after getting some unexpected air, landed on my butt-back upside down.  Now have some L hip pain that is similar to the uphill deal.

Sort of feels like a slight sprain.  Aggravate when move L leg i.e., up to cross my legs etc. 

Anyone ever experience this. Hate to go to a doctor $$$.   Pain isn't bad just sort of annoying and a little weak.  Really don't know how to rehab this, spend time in hot tub and resting it now as I don't want to aggravate moe.  Help please

If the pain is mostly straight lateral in the hip and is tender over the outside part of the hip, you may have greater trochanteric bursitis.  That is inflammation of the joint capsule.  I get it occasionally, especially if walking or running on a slanted surface, like the beach.  It will generally get better on its own, aided by some ibuprofen.  If that is not where your pain is then I am not sure.

 There is a whole bunch of hip muscle problems which can occur secondary to stress or injury. The muscles in the buttocks perform abduction, adduction, rotation and flexion of the femur so any unusual or sudden use of these muscles can result in pain because of sprains. Do a Google on piriformis muscle strain and you find a vast source of information about these types of problems. 
Hope this helps....

get well acquanted with a lacrosse  ball. Roll out those hot spots.Expect pain.
Freeze dixie cups full off water. Ice your painfull areas for 5 mins at a time. 5 mins. with those = 20 min of ice packs,very effective.
DO NOT TAKE NSAIDS !

The hot tub too early is a bad thing. It will encourage blood flow and subsequent swelling. You should be icing, but not heating for a few days.

What is wrong with ibuprofen for this type of injury?

injuries or work out (micro tears from lifting heavy).The body sends stem cells to repair and help heal the area..
You take nsaids and that shuts off those receptors andno repair happens.
Good Orthos are no longer prescribing nsaids.
Not to mention the stomach damage
