If I spend to long doing a banded distration on my hips performing external rotation, it starts to be slightly painful and discomforting. Then when I am done, I start limping temporary on the side I performed the banded distraction. I then usually just walk it off. Is this bad? Should we experience pain/discomfort (almost like a pin/stretchy type of pain in the capsule)? Is limping temporary bad do to an intense stretch?
