      Hi guys can someone help..
      Was running and training really well until early Feb when I noticed pain in my right hip (iliac crest). The pain feels as if I’ve a bruise on the bone or something like that..I’d started to sit in a car a lot more at work around the time it started to get sore..at this stage (June) it’s still catching me after I run (no pain when running generally) and as a result I’ve more or less stopped running altogether. I’m trying the standard set of glute strengthening exercises but they are only helping in the short term as the pain returns after a few hours.. I can cycle still with no pain..
      When I get my left QL stretched and worked on by a physiotherapist there is also no pain but it returns after a while.. Any ideas or wod’s that might help?

      Did you ever find a solution for this? I am dealing with the same thing. No pain while running but as soon as I run I have pain that lasts all day when just walking.

      Hi Jessica,
      Have you had any changes to typical day activities?

      The TFL attaches on the side of the iliac crest. Multiple abdominal& back muscles attach to the iliac crest.
      Pain could be due to irritation of the TFL.
      One hip may droop when you run putting stress on the muscles at the side of the pelvis.
      May need to work on hip and ab strength to correct the hip from drooping when running.
      A couple to start with:
      Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017 – TFL, Hip Extension & Back Pain

      Thursday, March 9th, 2017 – Anterior Hip

      Tuesday, April 10th, 2018 – Anterior Hip Prep
      Let us know how things progress

      Thanks for the reply! I’ll definitely check out those videos. I am finally getting some relief. After 2 visits to an Airostti doctor I have been diligent about working my TFL with a massage ball. I did not get full relief though until used video EPISODE 249: IMPROVING HIP EXTENSION (AND INTERNAL ROTATION) FOR RUNNING. I did the band exercises in that video twice a day for 3 days and felt much better.

      Great to hear you are finding some relief.
      It can take some time to fully resolve since it took some time to get to the point it is was at.
      Stay consistent with your work on it.
      Let us know if you need help with other aspects of it.
