I wonder if I can share some pain experience with you guys and I wonder whether I am alone with this.
My sports medicine doc diagnosed me with a “Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome” on my R lateral hip. Previously often “misdiagnosed” as Trochanteric bursitis. The most common reason is actually tendinitis from leg abductor muscles. Of course, I am quite certain, this is an overuse injury in my case, possibly too much too fast – and – maybe not enough stretching after workout, not enough soft tissue work, etc.
This is a bummer since I was making great progress during my 8 week Mountaineering program, just entering the world of muscular endurance workout, and then this. I stopped any exercise for 2 weeks, also caught a bad cold so at least that came together. Started to do all that’s recommended, abduction strength training, stretching (although I also read that that might not be good as long as “acute injured”, certainly good once healed for the long term), soft tissue work with a roller etc.
I went back today to a careful incline treadmill workout as well as stairmaster, only 10 minutes each after a good quality warm up. I can already tell, this is not gone.
Any experience from you guys greatly appreciated!
