My 13 year old daughter was doing jumping jacks in gym class and her right knee gave out and the foot turned sideways. Lately she's favoring the leg and limping a little with pain. She continues to walk and continues gym class. A few weeks earlier her knee and then her hip were hurting.
Dr. says to walk on it and to sit with feet flat on the floor. After 4 days of ibuprofin, Dr. is now having us reduce the amount gradually but it is still painful in her hip or sometimes again in the knee where the pain began.
Nothing showed on hip x-ray or blood test. Doc says 3 of 4 movements of her thigh cause pain.
Could it be something as simple as muscle or ligament strain? She can not recall any particular injury when the pain started weeks ago before the knee gave out.View Thread
Louise, I have been seeing my doctor. She diagnosed the pinched nerve and recommended the chiropractor. It just takes a while for nerves to regenerate and I keep up with the prescribed gentle exercises 2x day.
Those links were terrific! Thank you. Really liked the hip problems age 12 and older topic overview. Thanks!View Thread
I second this question as I am also experiencing similar hip pain and discomfort when I lay on my back/butt. I don't know what I did. My chiropractor diagnosed a pinched nerve in the hip but it is taking months of my special exercises to remove symptoms. Some days my hip/butt feel really pinched.View Thread
