hey kgildner, thanks for the reply, but im more worried about this sharp kinda stabbing like pain in my hips when i squat. i feel it when im about to go up from the hole in my squat. initially i wanted to post this thread under injury and rehab, but i thought there might be something wrong in my squat form so i posted it here.
ive been lurking around on the forums for awhile to find what is exactly causing the pain in my hips, but im still as confused as ever cause now it could be a possibility of tight hip flexors, femoral anterior glide syndrome, or hip impingement. not sure which of the three it is, but if i were to explain the pain, it would be somewhat of a sharp pain when im pushing out of the hole and also when i try to do internal rotation of the hips, something like this.
i found out that the above is a test for hip impingement, and that if there is pain in internal hip rotation, there most definately is hip impingement. my question is could tight hip flexors also cause pain in the above test? i havent went to the doc to check yet cause im afraid it would be quite expensive to go for an xray or an mri, so im trying my best to self diagnose the injury lol.
and the funny thing is that the only movement that causes this pain is squatting, i dont feel any pain in deadlifts whatsoever
i really wanna continue squatting, but at this rate i feel that i might be limping out of the gym instead of getting stronger everytime i end a session lol, any feedback will be greatly appreciated guys!
