How to relax tension in hip flexor?

When we stand, there should be a balance of power between the anterior hip muscles that flex the hip joints and the posterior hip muscles that stretch the hip joints. The front hip muscles, the hip flexors, are a little degenerate in our modern people due to our habit of spending long periods of the day sitting.

For most of us, this has resulted in the hip flexors getting used to the sitting position and thereby gaining the upper hand. The hip joints are bent almost 90 ° all the time.

As a result, the hip flexors tend to suffer from a chronic shortening, and the opposing opponents, the hip extensor, inevitably must give in and are therefore permanently unnaturally elongated and thus lose more and more tension.

Over time, this leads to the hip extensors, mainly the gluteal muscles, becoming slack and barely having the strength and essential tension, and the hip flexors shortening, contracting, and developing an unnaturally high resting pressure.

In case of muscle injuries during sport, extensive bleeding at the injury site must be expected. The primary purpose of the initial treatment is to control the bleeding. The athlete is immediately taken out of the sports business, and it is created a pressure bandage with an elastic bandage.

The extremity is relieved or stored with forearm canes. In the beginning, you have to chill regularly. Muscle relaxation medications can be administered. Short-term use of NSAIDs within the first five to seven days after the injury shows positive results. If there is a strong pressure increase in the soft tissues,

After 24 hours, the hematoma extent can be safely assessed. To reduce the hematoma, a puncture under sonography control may be required. If the hematoma is already in a solid-state, hematoma removal can be done by a small incision or arthroscopically.

Additional functional and reflex tests may be indicated, depending on the location of the hip flexor pain, to rule out other dysfunctions, vertebral blockages, or nerve lesions. By contrast, imaging techniques such as x-rays or CT are usually unnecessary for the diagnosis - on the contrary, they can lead to a misjudgment of the cause of the pain.

Many sufferers also do good heat or self-treatment of the trigger points with a massage ball. After the exercises and the standard treatment, you should drink enough and, if possible, follow a short relaxation phase.

To relax the tense muscles around the pelvis, daily stretching and relaxation exercises should be done at home, combined with several times a week exercise and manual therapy. In this form of treatment, the therapist stretches the muscle transversely to its course, in order to lengthen it, as if it were a run-in sweater.
