I've posted on here a few times re arthroscopy advice as I thought I was heading in the direction of surgery for bilateral labral tears. However two ortho surgeon opinions and a diagnostic intra-articular local anaesthetic injection later, it appears the tears are not responible for my limited activity and pain.
The current thinking is that psoas tendinopathy is responsible - has anyone experienced this? I've had it for over two years and am looking for advice on healing time, treatment options, stretches etc.
Any info gratefully appreciated
I've had the dreaded psoas tendinitis after my open debridement for FAI in November 2008. The thing that really worked for me was going to a private physio (as the NHS one didn't have a clue), and being told to stop all phsyio exercises except for very gentle stretching of the hip flexors and glute squeezes. She also did deep tissue massage, which hurt like buggery at the time but was very beneficial, and did ultrasound treatments on it. I also had to take anti-inflamms and ice regularly throughout the day. After about 4 sessions with her, it improved huge amounts. I've since had bilateral PAO's, and am very careful not to overdo the physio, as I don't want to get it again, especially as for this surgery, the rectus femoris is actually cut.
I hope this helps, and I hope it will get better soon. It is an awful pain, and is very restrictive. You have my sympathies!
Keep in touch and let us know how you get on x
I have also had right oblique / psoas problems for just over a year now after having Osteitis Pubis since June 2006. Haven't really shaken this off either and has started effecting my right groin (which was my good side)
Hopefully this thread takes off as I will read with interest.
