In brief: Slow advance to norm

Not all hip flexor strains are the same.
Mild strains that allow painfree motion equal to the opposite hip can be treated symptomatically by applying ice. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or an anti-inflammatory medication can help. More significant strains that make normal daily activities difficult or painful will require a period of rest and decreased strenuous activity until pain subsides and motion returns to normal.
