A question for more experienced people with injuries... Ok, so I'm 31 and never been injured before. I play/played soccer and a few months ago I went to kick and heard something pop in my leg near the hip area. It hurt and limped around for a few days. Then it fealt fine and in another game I hurt it again on a kick. Only when I tried to muscle it is when I hurt it again. Normal kicks it was ok. So I gave up soccer for a while. Once the initial pain and limp goes away, I feel pretty good. I can run and do whatever no problem. So after a few months lay off I played in a game last night as was going fine. Then I tried to get cute and go long and bam, something popped again. Now my leg is tight and i'm limping around. No real serious pain except when I try to lift my leg. I'm assuming again once this initial pain and limp goes away I'll be fine again. So, what is happening? Am I dislocating my bone at the hip slightly? If it was something serious, how can I run after the limp goes away? It's almost like when football plays dislocated their shoulder and it hurts them...but once the pain goes away and a few weeks, they're fine.
