Stretch/strengthen: This is usually caused by the front of your thighs and hips being too tight, and your abdominal and buttock muscles being too weak. Stretch the front of your thighs and strengthen your abs and gluts EVERY DAY and you should notice some improvement. Chiropractors can also be helpful in making sure all the vertebrae are in alignment to maximize your muscle work. Massage helps, too.

Rest will worsen! Exercise, even if painful will help and pain will get better with time.
