My daughter is in color guard-during practice she was attempting a head stand and felt a sharp pain in her mid abdomen on the right side...Hip flexor?

Unlikely: If you say mid abdomen on the right side, you have to have think of muscle along this region. But this will not give your daughter a sharp pain. It would be ideal to rule out any problems along the low thoracic spine as she may be having radicular symptoms as a result of her intense physical activity. X-rays of the spine and detailed imaging of the spine could be considered. ...Read more

Labral tear?: It sounds like your hip started hurting with no history of trauma. Is that right? It could be a labral tear. An exam, xray and mri would help diagnose. If that is what it is you should avoid hip flexion (squats). Also a hip injection into the actual hip joint (not the bursa on the outside of the hip) would help. Try anti-inflams and see if they help. Instead of ibuprofen, maybe naprosyn. ...Read more
