I have had a hip injury for best part of 6 months now. Getting worse each wee. Had MRI + Ultrasound and can't see what problem is, other than possible avascular necrosis on hip joint. Have had that for years however so donlt kw wh it would be a problem now.
Canlt lie on right side due to pain and stiff / sore all the time, especially getting up from sitting
I still think it is a muscle issue (possibly Piriformis symdrom)
Can anyone recommend a very good runner-specific physio in Northern irelan please?
Have since been to get some neuromuscular massage (deep tissue using the electric impulses) on my calf, hamstring and ass. Lot of scar tissue identified that needed broken down so am now on a rehab and stretching program.
Lady who did the NM work really sounded like she knew what she was talking about so here hoping 2013 will see me back on the marathon trail (fingers, toes and everything else crossed!!!)
Original injury was calf. Thought it was just bad cramp and stupidly ran on for a 2-3 miles the first time it happened. Did a few more runs where it felt ok (ish) but eventually started getting pain at less and less miles. Physio said it wasnlt a majotr tear and a couple weeks rest should do.
Took a full month break and now when I try to run any at all distance I get pain in my upper hamstring, butt, hip and lower back (same side as calf). Physio put it down to overcompesating when I injured the calf and tried to run on - however it's not getting any better whatsoever even with another months rest.
