I have been having this pain in my hip area when I am squatting below parallel. When I say hip pain its just what it is. It feels like the whole hip area. I have been having this pain for quite some time now in both of my hips. Not so much in the left area. Really in the right hip though. I thought if I layed off of squats for awhile it would go away, but it didnt.

How did I injury it. The left area which started first I think was do to squatting I belive. I think it might of acted up, because at after I get done doing a back squat I tend to bounce a bit at the top. When I do that I can actually feel that area start to act up so I stop doing that, and it really dosent bother me anymore.

The right I did at home. It had nothing to do with training. I was at home. I did something, dont remember exacatly what it was. When I did it though it hurted. Ok I might remember what happened. I remember walking around my bed. Just as I was about to turn to get around it my leg went in a ackward direction, and at that moment I felt a sharp pain in my hip area.

Ok maybe to point out the area a little bit more. When I do frankenstein, or whatever you would like to call them. Its when you keep your legs straight, and you kick them up as high as you can. I can feel, and also hear my hip area pop.

I dont know whats wrong with my hip, or how I can fix the problem. Just wanting to know if you guys could help me out with the problem, and maybe even fix it.

No I didnt go see a doctor yet. Was wanting to see what you guys think about it first.

It's so difficult being injured in this day and age, we're taught to trust doctors but they're always so full of hogwash. Beyond surgure there's not a whole lot I have found doctor's to be helpful with.

I don't know if anyone here will be able to "fix" your injury any better than yourself. Only you are you and you know you're body better than anyone else.

Things I have found to help with my hips-

Arch supports in shoes, helps realign the entire body, which after years of slight imbalances in mechanics can develop all kinds of chronic pain.

What are you body mechanics like? Knock kneed? Bow legged? If so then either of these features of you anatomy can caus pain in your joints and prevent injuries from healing properly.

My suggestion is that you find something that helps by trial and error. I like the warrior pose from yoga for strengthening and opening up the pelvic gurdle.
