Finally stopped being lazy and saw a hip specialist about the groin/hip flexor pain I have been experiencing for a few months. Diagnosis is a slight tear in the labrum around the hip bone. Doesnt appear to require surgery. Doctor recommended PT for six weeks + anti-inflammatory. Suggested that I stop squatting and DL'ing but do a lot of single leg exercises to strengthen the hip. I am cautiously optimistic that if I really dedicate myself to the PT, I can ultimately come out ahead on my lifts. PT is a lot of stretching, hip raises and side extensions on machines, one leg non-weighted squats and leg press where you press with both legs and lower slowly with one.
