Hip pain, in outside hamstring below butt, and outside of hip. Since I dance a lot, doing certain moves, (kicks, turns, and jumps) hurt really bad. I know I injured it doing a kick tilted over, I hyper extended my supporting leg and pushed out my hip, and

If conservative measures with rest, ice and anti-inflammatories doesn't allow you to return to dancing, then you should see a sports medicine specialist to get the proper diagnosis and treatment plan. ...Read more
