hip flexor strainThe tearing of one or more of the hip flexor muscles, accompanied by pain in the front of the groin or hip, results in what is known as a hip flexor strain.
Without the hip flexor muscles, we would not be able to sprint or kick because these muscles enable us to bend the hip in order to move the knee toward the chest.  Hip flexor muscle fibers become tense when they are stretched or contracted and may tear if such activities as excessive repetition or force result in too much tension.
Factors Contributing to Hip Flexor Strain
Sprinting and kicking often cause hip flexor strain, because the hip flexor muscles may contract too suddenly during these and similar activities. Additionally, if the muscles have not been given the chance to warm up, then an explosive acceleration or a long football kick will more than likely result in hip flexor strain. Read More

Inflammation, Joint Swelling, and Joint Pain

The response of the immune system to an irritant is called inflammation. When, for example, you sprain your ankle, your immune system produces a protein which is transported to the site of the injury and results in pain and swelling. The pain is simply your body informing you of the injury or damage. The swelling is another layer of protection to prevent the site of injury from moving too much and causing further injury. Moreover, the swelling is also an indication that the body is addressing the injury by flooding the area with fresh blood, antibodies and vital cells to promote healing of the damage. Following this, in the normal course of things, the body produces proteolytic enzymes which work to counteract the inflammation allowing the injured area to return to normal. Read More
