About 2 months ago I was doing squats while working out and something popped on my upper right thigh near the hip. Now I have ongoing pain which is worse when sitting down. It is painful when I bend over and legs are straight. The pain runs down the side of my leg and into front and back of thigh. anyone know what I may have torn or popped and what can be done to help pain. thank you
Did you stretch before? I know it's really "gym teacher" of me but it stretches your muscles so that your muscles don't tear. I just tore my forearm, couldn't even open a can without pain, but like everything it heals. Torn muscles you just have to wait out, if it continues for a couples more weeks I would go to the doctor. Other than that rub your legs with some oils.
