Our work with elite athletes serves as the proving grounds for our methods. Most people don’t play professional sports. But if our methods help athletes at the highest levels, they can work for anyone.
I’m certain this has been addressed before, and have applied some various techniques to try and work it out, but to no avail, so I figured I’d post here.
Without being an expert in the subject, I’ll try and describe my pain: my left hip (it feels capsular) hurts—a stinging tightness, like a pinch—during flexion, ie. the squat. I can usually work through this when back squatting heavy, but 10 minute squats have become impossible, and it’s starting to interfere with every day life (even sitting cross-legged hurts.) I’m tempted to say this happens during external rotation + flexion, but it sometimes occurs when internally rotating too.
Kelly addresses a “hip clonk” in one video, but it cuts out early and no solution is really addressed. I’ll flex, externally rotate, then lower, and there’s a “clonk” in the hip. Hanging out in the flexion causes the pinching pain.
Again, it feels like a joint issues. I *do* have a desk job, I squat and deadlift frequently and well. Any other information I can provide, sure. But this pain is starting to get annoying. Help?
