I went to my doctor and he referred me to the physio on the NHS-wish I had known that before! The physio thinks my problem is tight, glute muscles and I have had another 2 deep massages (very painful) and have been doing some running specific yoga stretches I found on the internet and the psoas stretch the runners therapist reccomended and......it seems to be improving, I have run 3x this week and although it has felt a bit sore after each run, the yoga stretches seem to ease the soreness. I am even thinking of a half marathon in the Spring!
I have a similar problem which I was goping to post! I will post it here as none of these strategies seem to have cured it I have spent about £130 pounds since August and still have the problem. Here is my post
I have a long standing problem with my hip/ITB which is really getting me down. I saw a physio in August in Chamonix and have been doing core strengthening exercise regularly. Although I have been running (short-30min easy runs) since then, on trails whenever possible, my hip has never felt quite right. This month I have had 2 deep gluteal massages from a local physio which have helped to relieve the tightness, but after yesterdays run my hip was really sore again! I would be grateful for any suggestions Thanks LinofDe
