Pain in 1 hip but not the other

Just wondering what to do about this hip pain i've been having for the past 4-5 days. If I lay on my good side and have my bad side up, trying to have my legs straight and together hurts, but what is bugging me the most is sitting and squatting (bottom half of movement)

I've been trying all I can think of, foam rolling, lacross ball, super couch stretch...nothing...

Re: Pain in 1 hip but not the other

Lets just say I haven't bothered to see a doc because of my line of work you have to go to a certain place that takes forever, and doesn't give a crap about booboos like this...or at least thats the attitude they give off.

Instead I talked to my physio team, and both just said tight hips...but I don't understand why only 1 side would hurt.

Not what you want to hear, but it could be a torn labrum, or a hip impingement (FAI).

I only know this because I have both issues, in both hips. I had to get a MRI to find out for sure though.

Re: Pain in 1 hip but not the other

go to a Dr. even if it takes a long time. i had a nagging pain in one side as well and found out yesterday that i have FAI and a torn Labrum. this is not something that you want to gamble with.

Re: Pain in 1 hip but not the other

How does one tear a labrum or get FAI?

from what my Dr. said, some of it genetics and some of it is years of bad mechanics. i had a lot of hip problems as a baby so i am not that surprised that i am having these issues now. as for the labrum tear, can be a combination of things but in my case it was probably wear and tear.

Re: Pain in 1 hip but not the other

btw, it is fairly easy to determine if you have FIA or at least get some sort of an idea. here is the test i did and what the Dr. did when he first saw me:

link is SFW.

as for the tear, only an MRI can show that for sure.

Re: Pain in 1 hip but not the other

The thing is the pain isn't in the front of the hip its, basically in my rump, and down my IT band.

Re: Pain in 1 hip but not the other

If this isn't getting better, seeing a doc is a good idea.

Going into your ITB band makes me think of glute medius and sometimes piriformis.

From reading your other posts, I get the impression you squat regularly. How active are your glutes in squatting?

Also how wide do you squat? Wide deep squats can really agitate the hips.

Finally, something that warms up my hips is putting a short band around my ankles then walking forward 6-8 feet, then 6-8 sideways then 6-8 feet backwards then 6-8 feet sideways the other way--completing a square.

Also, working on stepping over a 2' hurdle forwards, backwards and sideways opens up the hips, as well as lunges in multiple directions.
