There are many causes of hip flexor strains

Hip flexor strains can easily occur for a wide variety of reasons. In most cases, these injuries are caused by abrupt or repetitive movements that overload the flexor muscles. This can be due to intense exercise, such as running and jumping, or simply attempting certain postures and exercises that require extreme flexibility. Poor stretching habits and excessive training are also potential culprits of hip flexor strain. Visit a chiropractor, physiotherapist or massage therapist at a CARESPACE location in Kitchener or Waterloo. They will be able to properly diagnose the degree of severity of your strain and provide treatment appropriate for your recovery process.

What is a hip flexor strain?

A hip flexor strain is a musculoskeletal injury caused by an overstretching or tearing of the muscles that connect the hip to the torso. It is one of the most common sports injuries, especially among athletes who often engage in activities involving repetitive lunges or jumps.

What are the symptoms of a hip flexor strain?

Symptoms of a hip flexor strain usually present as pain in the affected area, which can worsen with movement, as well as tenderness and swelling. In more severe cases, a person might experience discomfort in their lower back or thighs due to their hips being unbalanced from the injury. Pain after long periods of inactivity or intense activities such as running are also signs that a person has strained their hip flexor. Those who experience any of these symptoms should seek medical attention right away to avoid further aggravation of their condition.

What are the treatments for a hip flexor strain?

Treatment for a hip flexor strain typically includes chiropractic methods or massage therapy to help minimize the pain, as well as physiotherapy exercises to help restore flexibility. Seeing a chiropractor or physiotherapist can provide advice on how to manage the injury and develop a plan of action for recovery. After an acute strain has been taken care of and physical activity is resumed, massage therapy will become even more beneficial as it helps with both recovery and prevention of future injury.
