PostSubject: Pulled hip muscle   Mon Nov 30, 2009 3:55 pm

Has anyone suffered a pulled hip muscle? The lower left side of my hip feels a little sore. I can't tell whether it's from my recent games or my running. Whichever the case, it feels somewhat strained especially on my followthrough. Any recommendations as to what I should do? Perhaps some rest and abstinence from the sport?

ice. rest.

Go see a physio if it persists.

I pulled my back a few years back. Couldn't walk after 1 swing.

Went to the doc. Was prescribed Valium and lots of rest. Back to swinging after 2 weeks.

Slinger... no more house visits from you then.

Rex, thanks. Abstinence is key. I'll get some rest and ice it.

Had that before. Rest and take care not to further injured it is key to recovery. Nothing much you can do about it but to take time to heal. One thing i diligently did; kept doing stretching, twice daily. Simple stretching like sitting down on a chair and turn your body slowly until you feel the hip muscle is stretched, then release it slowly and keep repeating that. hope this helps

From personal experience, just make sure that during your rest period to do light stretching to prevent your muscles from stiffening up and also just before your resume play, do just that extra stretch and TAKE IT EASY...and keep the Driver/woods/hybrids at home and take only short irons....

I think I'll spend the next week or so reflecting on the wonders of life and how golf has brought me closer to so many funny and kind folks like yourselves.

TS, I pulled a muscle deep inside near the spine made worse after a round of golf. Hurt everytime I stood from a sitting positon, couldn't straighten my back without lying down on the bed face down and squeezing my butt muscles down.

The advice given by the others is what I'm doing now TS. Doc prescribed anti-inflamatory painkillers and said the same thing, rest the next few weeks, but do light exercises once better to strengthen the weakened core muscles. Butt lifts for me he said.

You might want to try Voltaren emulgel which relieves pain, swelling and inflammation. I always carry it with me on the course too just in case. Great stuff.

Take care my friend.

Thanks, BM. I'll keep an eye out for the Voltaren (sounds futuristic). I'll get rest... and look forward to playing with you, bro.

Given how I play right now, I think any parking lot will be guaranteed... for an ambulance.

At least you got to play through the long weekend. I was miserable as hell stuck at home just practicing my putting thinking of you guys. Some playing Fri, Sat, Sun some more.

Sniff sniff....

You know what's the worst part? I tried to swing my wedge and smashed the kitchen light. Deja vu... 2nd one I smashed to date. The other being the living room lights. Sigh....

Ouch, to both JT and BM though for different reasons altogether.

JT, you should rest.. like me. Give it a few days for the body to heal itself.

BM, I've dented my car by chipping a ball to close to it. So, let's remember that golf is fun... till you wreck your other belongings Smile

Hi Technospaz
If problem persist or deteriorate, I recommend visiting a physio (sports) at Spore Shopping Centre. 3-5 session is all you need to repair torn muscles. Let me know if you need the contact.
