"Hip Pain"

by Jennifer

I'm an athlete who has been having this aching pain in my "hip" for almost a year now. Luckily it has not yet affected my performance because I don't usually feel it when I play and practice.
Most nights, it gives me trouble while trying to sleep because of the pain and sometimes I take pain killers if it is too much for me. Then I obviously feel it when I am trying to stretch as my one leg is not as flexible as the other. Also the iliacus muscle gives me pain.

I feel like my trainers have not been taking this seriously as it doesn't affect me when I play but now it has come to a point where the pain makes it hard for me to sleep. I need to figure out how to make it better.

One of my trainers told me to work on my abdominal strength, but now I know that this is not the issue and I know my abs and back are fine. I am doing more stretching now than before but have yet to see any results.

This week I got a massage as well but I can't say it feels any different. My masseuse also told me to get a cream containing Ketoprofen.
