Hi Kaitlin. Thanks for these links – I will have a look through them all. I have seen three different physiotherapists who have all given me different exercises to do to strengthen my hips and glutes, but so far no improvement. This is why I’m thinking about core strength and whether that would help me. 

Something else I have noticed is that I seem to have a big and very painful trigger point in my right thigh – I think it’s in the vastus lateralis? I am wondering whether this could be contributing to the pain? Whenever I go over it with a foam roller it’s excruciatingly painful to the point where I can’t really cope with it for very long. Does this mean that it needs more work or am I causing myself harm? I don’t really know what to think.
