I haven’t told many of my friends that I got injured during January after an audition for The Student Team at Salsa Akademien Stockholm. My physiotherapist was concern about my muscle that might have has been a bit torn at the hip area. It has been two month since I haven’t been able to practise any climbing or aerial sport because of the injury. Now I feel much better compare to the first weeks where I was limping. I started to try out some aerial sports at the gym but it still hurts a lot. I will have an MRI scan on Tuesday and hope that I can recover more quickly. This is my second injury I’ve ever had. My first was when I played basket ball at year 2000 where my little finger got dislocated. Ouch! Now my hip. I realised that I really need to be careful and be proper warmed before jumping around, as the year I grow older. It would be terrible for me not to be able to do sports. Sports are my life and I would not want to live without it. So please be careful you too when you are out there!
I would like to give some recommendations to those who injured their hips and have no clue what to ask when visiting the doctors. My doctors just examined me for less than 2 minutes each time and gave me some drugs due to an inflammation in the hip (not really) and that’s why it has taken so long time for me to get a referral to the MRI scan. Just contact your physiotherapist immediately. They have the knowledge and can examine you more proper. Ask them about:
If your muscles have been overstretch
Is it an inflammation
Crack in the skeleton
Muscle that has been torn
(and other things you can think of)
The hip area is very strong so breaking something might not always been the cause. Just try to remember what caused the pain and what you think what could have happened. Do some research before visiting your physiotherapist to shorten the recovery time of your injure.
