There are many causes of hip flexor tendinopathy

Hip flexor tendinopathy occurs when the muscles that attach to the hip bone become strained and swollen from repetitive use and is often accompanied by pain throughout the hip and lower back region. When left untreated, this condition can lead to more serious injuries such as torn ligaments or cartilage. Treatment typically includes chiropractic care, physiotherapy, massage therapy, and other forms of physical therapy. Working with a chiropractor or physiotherapist can help to reduce inflammation and the pain associated with a hip flexor tendinopathy diagnosis, while massage therapy helps improve range of motion in the injured area. Taking care to properly stretch and warmup before physical activity can help diminish one’s risk of developing this condition in the first place. 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 hip flexor tendinopathy?

Hip flexor tendinopathy is a type of chronic injury where the tendons in your hip flexor become irritated and inflamed. This can cause pain when you move your hips, especially when you raise your leg or bend at the waist. These painful sensations can be accompanied by snapping or popping noises within the hip area as well. The condition typically occurs due to overuse, such as from performing repetitive movements like running or lifting heavy weights over long periods of time. Overweight individuals may also be more prone to developing this disorder because their joints must work harder to support the extra weight. Without proper treatment, hip flexor tendinopathy can reduce mobility, flexibility and strength in the affected joint, leading to increased discomfort and reduced quality of life.

What are the symptoms of hip flexor tendinopathy?

Hip flexor tendinopathy symptoms include sharp pain in the front or side of your hip when you move it, especially if you are reaching for something; tenderness when pushing on your hip; swelling around your hip joint; decreased range of motion in your hip area; pain that radiates down into your groin and thigh; difficulty sleeping due to discomfort at night; and difficulty engaging in activities such as running or jumping. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to consult a doctor as soon as possible, as early treatment can prevent further damage.

What are the treatments for hip flexor tendinopathy?

To treat hip flexor tendinopathy, a chiropractor, physiotherapist or massage therapist can help to alleviate symptoms and reduce pain. Chiropractic treatment is focused on chiropractic manipulations as well as muscle activation exercises and soft tissue therapies. Physiotherapy can also include targeted exercises designed to stretch and strengthen surrounding muscles, stability training, ultrasound therapy, electrical stimulation and more. Massage therapy helps to relieve the tension of tight muscles and other soft tissues, which can reduce pain. Depending on the severity of the condition and individual circumstances, your chiropractor, physiotherapist or massage therapist can help determine an effective course of treatment for your hip flexor problems.
