Hello - my DD is 12 training level 8/9 and has been out of the gym for over 5 weeks. She has pain in her right hip - front and side. She hears a popping sound...and then pain. She has had pain over 12 weeks now. X-ray show no breaks and MRI shows inflamed hip tendons. She has PT 2X per week, taking anti-inflamatories and icing. None of this is helping. Also scheduled to meet with a rheumatologist in Jan.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Or any success in treating this? Thanks!

We can’t give medical advice on the CB. I’m going to leave this unlocked but please tread lightly.

Thank you...I didn’t realize my question appeared to be seeking medical advice. There are no threads on this topic and wondered if others had experience with this injury and hoped that they would be willing to share their experience.

As a former gymnast (ugh 30-35 years ago!) I remember having that same type of pain. I was young though so admittedly don't know exactly what they said it was. I do remember not doing bars for a few months as that is where the pain was the worst. I hope the PT helps and she heals well.
