I have a 14 year old boy who's an elite soccer player and in pretty good shape. He does a lot of kettle bells and has great strength/mass ratio. Anyway he's been unable to sprint or kick hard for 6 months with deep high upper quad pain - it's all the way out by the the anterior pelvic spine (front of pelvic bone)nowhere near adductors or groin - tried 1 month off - came back to same pain. Funny thing 2 months ago the issue switched to Left side (was right side). Hurts when hip flexors extend or leg brought behind body. no pain from sneezing coughing etc. Tried all sorts of therapy etc. One doc says it's prob a sports hernia and that the 3 top docs are in Santa Monica, Philly and Germany. Any body got any feedback that might help. Thanks - Appreciate the blog.
has he tried using a foam roller on his painful spots?
