Picture A is the stretch.
When I stretch the right leg/hip (as shown in the picture) the red arrow is where I feel a pinching feeling with no stretch feeling in the area indicated by the green arrow. I don’t feel the stretch even if I push the knee away. Pushing the knee away by utilizing my abductors does lesson the pinch feeling.
When I stretch my left leg/hip area, I have no pinch feeling and feel the stretch in the hip area indicated by the green arrow. I assume I should feel the stretching where the green arrow indicates, regardless of which side I am stretching.
Picture B is the actual way I stretch by placing my foot on a wall.
I have been having issues with my right hip for some time now (~2 months). Pushing a prowler aggravates it as does squatting. Deadlifting does not. The pain (a burning feeling similar to having rotator issues if you have had them) keeps me awake or prevents me from sleeping most nights.
Occasionally, the pain will be in the back around the top of the glute, but most often at the top of front of my hip near the crease, pretty much in the same area as the pinching feeling but slightly lower. I have no issues with walking, sitting, standing, just lying down to sleep.
Just tonight I was able to hit the area with my pvc roller so perhaps that will alleviate the issue. I haven’t been to a doctor because they are going to give me NSAIDS and tell me to stop doing whatever hurts. I have stopped doing what hurts and am going to give pvc rolling and stretching a go for a bit and see if that helps.
Anyone know what is going on or have/had anything similar?
