  • What fixed the nervy pain for me.  RumbleRolling! My gosh RumbleRollers are godsend.  Also the “couch stretch” but with a wall or bench instead of a couch.  Squeeze the butt and push back against the couch/wall/bench until you feel a stretch around the knee.  Don’t let the hips dump into anterior pelvic tilt.  Strengthen the glute.  Hip thrusters and deadlifts.

    Wow.  You’ve given me a lot of stuff.  Here.  I have homework.  I have no idea what a talus is or how to make sure it is moving.  Will get on it.  

    I definitely feel it’s something biomechanical that is keeping it in a pathological state.  
    Do you mind if I follow up with you regarding specific question on some of these things?  I’ll do my own due diligence then hit you up if it still doesn’t make sense.  

    Just to recap since it’s been a while: – chronic iliopsoas pain for 15 years.  iliopsoas tender to the touch.  Gets really bad sitting – not just in a sitting-is-bad-for-you kind of way, but the joint starts to feel like it’s hyper inflamming on the spot – starts to feel 4 times it’s size and bulgy making sitting impossible.  Hard to explain.  iliopsoas always tender to the touch.  No back pain.  

    Update: Lately as I strengthen and exercise (doing cross fit like stuff in a group) don’t feel nearly as much pain in my iliopsoas but I am getting a LOT of nervy pain all the time (resting, sleeping, standing) in my lateral quad on that same side.  Also any psoas stretch feels meh to good on the psoas itself but a serious b*tch on my lateral quad – at the least bad tearing sensation (especially when I squeeze my glutes), but most of the time tearing and nervy/tingly.  If it’s nervy I stop.  Sometimes I can warm up to it then stretch without nervy.  

    Basically, since I’ve been doing rehab to hip flexor pain, my hip has gotten better, but lateral quad has gotten worse – and specifically more nervy even resting.  This happens every time I start to exercise and get in a routine.  My hip gets better but my quad gets worse and nervy.   

    Thanks Kaitlin!  

    I just started my own business so chiro isn’t in the cards currently.  I did go to one about 6 years ago.  Maybe I didn’t stick with it long enough but didn’t get any relief.  
    I have no idea what is causing the problem, but will just do as many mobs as I can everyday and try to keep hope alive!

    No way can do a pistol without falling backwards.  I hold on to a ledge to hang out in the squat position.  Feet are not straight either so my ankles definitely lack range.  
    Great news though I did redid the calf stretches from episode 3 (downstream) and the dull ache in my hip completely cleared up!!  So guessing that is definitely a piece.  So strange to me that my iliopsoas feels better after a calf stretch but it’s true.  Also putting my leg in traction with strap just attached to my ankle (forget which WOD that was in) seems to help.
    When I do deep hip flexion mobs like the squat position but others too my left hip joint feels like it’s being squashed. Almost like it’s too big to allow for that much compaction – the actual joint.  Maybe that’s the capsule?  What is the capsule?  
    I also watched a mob where Kelly said a tearing sensation is good.  Did I understand that correctly?  
    What are good mobs upstream from hips? 
    Other notes: I can’t squeeze my glutes at all in couch position.  Barely can in a basic runner stretch.  Also I can squeeze my butt standing but as soon as I start to go down in a squat can not.  Are you supposed to be able to?  Feels like my body isn’t even made to do that?  I can still brace with my abs.  
    Great news! Figured out a way to test/retest that stops my hip from clicking.  Laying on back, if I lengthen my leg out and down (like I’m doing pilates) my hip clicks (test).  If then I do one legged bridge pose really focusing on squeezing my butt and holding it, then retest my hip doesn’t click.  After 3 or 4 reps it starts clicking again, but if I do the bridge it “fixes” it again temporarily and it actually feels fine/functional.  The longer and more intense I do the bridge the more reps the fix stays in the retest.  

    BTW, MWod pro, started reading BSL, got the green rogue strap, 3 lacross balls, and on ep. 6 MobilityWOD.  I’m brand new!
