Hip Pain Brought On By Runningposted at May 7, 2012
Question: Hello! I’ve recently started running. I’ve been having some pain in my right hip area. It feels similar to sciatic nerve pain, but slightly different. I think the way I’m running might be putting a weird strain on that area. Is this an “injury” that y’all deal with? Thanks!
Answer: Thanks for the question. Without knowing a few more details it is hard for me to know exactly what might be going on. Sciatica, bursitis, iliotibial band friction syndrome and piriformis syndrome are all common “injuries” or pain syndromes that often start with the commencement of running and cause pain in the hip region. We treat all these injuries. The best plan would be to get you in for an evaluation so we can work out what is causing your pain. We do not need a physician referral to see you.
