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.

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.

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.

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.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
