Brief overview of the episode:

            Hip flexor strain is a fairly common sports injury. Sports that involve kicking and skating are frequent elicitors as well as endurance sports like cycling and running. The most common symptom is pain in the front of the hip.

            Other symptoms can include pain with hip flexion or extension, weakness and tenderness. The most commonly bothered hip flexors are the iliopsoas and the rectus femoris muscles.

            Recovery time can range from a week to a few months. The severity and cause of injury are big factors. More chronic overuse strains are going to take a little longer on average. Minor sudden injuries will recover more quickly. It is important to limit irritation as much as possible initial and slowly return to the activity in a graded fashion.
