Popped hip while jumping, pain on walking, shooting pain while leg is back in step. Treatment?

Hello. I am a senior in high school and am a cheerleader. While cheering at my high school s football game I seemed to have my hip pop 4 times while jumping. My jumps have recently gotten very good so I figured my hip just couldn t handle it. I have been in a lot of pain to walk and it seems to be bothering me a lot more lately. When I walk it seems to hurt especially bad when my leg is back in my step. Help?

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

Based on the given description, I suspect that you could have suffered a Groin strain.

An MRI scan of the involved area is necessary to rule out any serious soft tissue damage inside.

The treatment of Groin strain involves
* REST - It is important to rest following the injury to allowed the injured muscle to properly heal.
* STRETCHING - Gentle stretching is helpful, but it should not be painful.
* ICE PACKING - Apply ice to the injured area in the acute phase (first 48 hours after injury), and then after activities. Ice will help calm the inflammatory response and stimulate blood flow to the area.
* MOIST HEAT APPLICATION - Before activities, gentle heating can help loosen the muscle. Apply a heat pack to the groin prior to stretching or exercising. As a general rule of thumb, remember to heat before an activity and ice afterwards
* ANTIINFLAMMATORY MEDICATION - Oral anti-inflammatory medications (such as Ibuprofen, Aleve, or Motrin) can help relieve symptoms of pain and also calm the inflammation.
* PHYSICAL THERAPY - may speed up the recovery process. Therapeutic modalities such as Ultrasound, Massaging and specific exercises will be helpful.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
It seems there is ligament sprain at joint.
For pain, take ibuprofen in prescribed dose with food.
Give rest to limbs.
Consult the orthopedician to assess for any tender points and to examine the range of movements at the joints.
Hope I have answered your query.
