I had a sever hip flexor tear 2 years ago (mis-diagnosed by a physio as a minor sprain). It took around 10 months to fully heal, as I was still walking around during the day, and whilst I now feel I didn't look after it properly, at the time I was fed up of not being able to participate in sporting activities.
Now, 2 years on, I am still struggling with hip flexor pain, which leaves me unable to climb stairs and lift my lef pain free, as well as finding driving/walking/bending an issue. Has anyone else had a lasting effect from a hip injury? Are there any hip braces available I can use?
I am getting more and more fed up with being worried about participating in activities that may aggravate my pain, but I'm hesitant to go back to the Drs years on!
