Hip pain that won't go away

Question: Hip pain that won't go away

Hi,
I had surgery done on my left hip last April for a labral tear. They also shaved down part of my hip because it was impinging mobility and a possible cause of the tear. Since then hip mobility seems to have increased but I cannot take advantage of it, whenever I squat with my knees tucked inward I feel a sharp pain in my left groin/psoas area of my hip and also pain in my left knee. I can squat with my knees outward and I have no pain. This pain affects me greatly because I am a skateboarder and most tricks involve squatting with the knees turned inward. I recently went to physical therapy for five weeks for psoas tendonitus. After an MRI it turned out there was no tendonitus and the Dr. decided to do a cortisone shot to reduce swelling and fluid in that area. I slight split in the labral was also shown that I was told would heal on its own. It has been a week since the cortisone shot and there is still no improvement. I am trying to find out why there may still be pain even though I have gone through surgery, physical therapy and a cortisone shot.

Answer:

Hi there

I am an Australian Kinesiologist/sports therapist.

The psoas and the iliacus are related, energy wise, to the kidney, and dehydration can cause the kidney meridian to go into under energy. This will affect those muscles, plus the upper trapezius, a shoulder muscle. They will tighten and foreshorten. To overcome this we'll have to reset the switch. There are a few neuro lymphatic points around the navel. One set is 1" above and 1" to the side of that, With other words 45° above the navel. Massage deep and 30 seconds at a time 6 times a day.
The other points are at T11-12 level of the spine on the left, 1" next to the spine. There is a sensitive spot there called a Ganglion. This is where the nerve exits that controls those muscles and kidneys. Massage this too, 30 seconds at a time 6 times a day. After you have done these for a couple of days, sit back to front on a kitchen chair, spread your arms wide and do rotations, as far as you can go from one side to the other. This will re-align the spine at this level. You have a slight dislocation at T11-12.
Doing these corrections will save you the trip to a chiropractor. Make sure you drink enough water. Nothing else hydrates as well as plain clean water. Skate boarding is hard work and uses up heaps of water. Don't do coke or sports drinks. You are probably allergic to the chemicals and colouring, not to mention the sugar.
Vitamin C will help the healing process. 2000 mg a day would be recommended.

Cortisone works(?) as a painkiller rather than a healing mechanism, and prolonged cortisone use will stop the adrenal glands producing it.

Good luck

Answer:

Thanks a lot Hans,
Would you recommend seeing a chiropractor, I would not mind trying if you think that might yield a better result.

Answer:

Hi there

It is up to you. I have a fairly low opinion of chiropractors. Too many visits, too much money, to few results. I have to admit thatI also have a low opinion of the medical system. I don't believe that dis-ease is caused by a lack of drugs.
I would try my recommendations first and see how you go for a week. Let me know!

Answer:

Thanks, one more question. How do I know if I am massaging correctly and where exactly is the ganglion/t-11t-12.

Answer:

Hi there

If you follow the lower rib around to the back as far as you can towards the spine, and stop just before you get to the spine you are at the right place. Massage this whole area with the knucles of your hand. It will be sensitive

Good luck
