Long story short, while attempting a PR last Jan (1 year ago) I was doing 315 back squats ass to grass, and on my way up, I felt a ’pop’ in my inner right hip.
If feels like while squatting my hip flexor tendon popped out of place or I damaged some tendons in my inner hip. I have significant hip mobility restrictions on the bad hip. And while not a high pain level thing, it does cause me to start limping when walking fast, and I haven’t been able to squat more than 185 since. Also just flares up if I’m walking more than a couple miles at a time.
I’ve seen 3 doctors. And they basically said ‘yup, you don’t have hip mobility. Try stretching’ so now it’s been a year and 3 different docs have said to stretch. Got an X-ray and it didn’t show anything because it’s not a hip bone issue.
Don’t have health insurance, (the joy of being broke). And I’m teying to figure out what to do next. I don’t mind doing phys ther and stretching, but it hasn’t helped over the past year and they said to come back in 6 months.
I’d like to get an MRI and get a real look because I’m only 29 and I don’t want a permanently fucked up hip and a limp. lol. Probably gonna need some kind of surgery.
Does anyone else know about people tearing or injuring hip flexors while squatting? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Also new to posting here, even though I’ve been reading t nation for almost a decade. But I do have video of the squat when it happened if that will help at all.
Thanks in advance
