Hi, posting here in the hope that someone may have experienced similar in the past & be able to shed some light (please forgive all the detail)
I went to a chiro last week (as I'd also had a bit of tightness in lumbar region) & they diagnosed an issue with my pelvis alignment, that's now been corrected & I have another follow up treatment tomorrow...however the pain directly on my hip joint is concerning me, hence why I'm posting here as the chiro couldn't really explain the hip pain.
Bit of background:- had a v mild, dull pain in R hip for 2-3 weeks after a run. It seemed to appear out of the blue - I dont remember twisting/straining anything at any point & my training remained consistent for a 10k. I had no actual pain during running or walking. Early september I went on hols, did plenty of walking & by the end pain got a little more persistent, but would disappear approx 5 mins into a run or walk (I presume when everything was 'warmed up'). Again mild on the pain scale. (I should have rested at this point, but had hopes I could compete in a local 10k race I'd entered, hence my stubborness)
The past 2 weeks hip has got worse & started to hurt immediately into a run (I've now stopped running totally). It doesnt hurt to rotate the hip in any direction, only on weight bearing. No clicking/snapping in the joint, but I can feel pain when pressing the boney part of the hip. It seems to ease as the day goes on (always worse 1st thing in morning or from getting up after sitting down for long periods). Also feel mild pain when lying on the hip at night.
Have done plenty of reading into causes of hip pain & nothing seems to match my symptoms. I dont think the pain is bad enough to be bursitis & my mileage was never high enough for it to be an overuse injury. (25m per week average) Any ideas as to what this could be?? .
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
