After riding, my hips are stiff and I have pain bringing a leg forward to walk. Right now after riding some two-point yesterday, I feel like I have a stitch on the side of my left hip, again, right where the socket is. If I grip the part right above where my thigh meets my pelvis, it's painful, concentrated on the front and side. I haven't rushed into this way of riding, and I don't have pain in the rest of my body. I usually get abdominal pain and calf soreness when I've had to improve my position.
Testing my motion out, the problem is concentrated on the side and front only, I don't feel like it's a muscular pain, I'm very sure it's restricted to the joint.
So, I will call up my mother to ask her about my medical history specifically, and wonder which doctor to see if this isn't something that can be fixed with stretching or other exercise. I also notice the pain when jogging, using stairs, or bicycling long before my heartbeat increases... it's not just impeding my equestrian performance Has anyone dealt with this sort of thing before, hip joint issues? Is it likely it can be compensated for or fixed?
