Hip Flexor Strain Symptoms and Treatment
How can I treat hip flexor pain?
Hip flexor pain is generally caused by an overstretched or strained hip flexor muscle. Medical-grade compression shorts can help provide pain relief and speed recovery.
What is a hip flexor strain?
The hip flexor muscles attach the pelvis to the thigh bone and allow the hip to bend and bring your knee to your chest. When overstretched or suddenly contracted without a proper warm-up, these muscles can become strained or torn.
What is the best way to recover from a hip flexor strain?
Many doctors will prescribe the R.I.C.E. protocol when recovering from a muscle strain: rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Use compression sleeves and shorts to provide medical-grade compression to the area in order to relieve pain, promote blood flow, and speed recovery. BioSkin’s Ultima Compression Shorts provide medical-grade compression with a lightweight and breathable material.
