How long does it typically take to recover from a hip flexor strain?

Flexor strain. A flexor strain may take up to 6 weeks to heal. This can sometimes be associated with labral tearing and/or femoracetabular impingement (fai). Pt can speed up the healing.
6 wks +/- Depends on the severity of your injury. Strain is usually caused by acute trauma from sprinting, cutting, or kicking. Initially, focus on ice/rest/antiinflammatories. When the pain improves after a few days, begin easy stretches of hip flexors. In recovery, focus on flexibility and core strengthening. Gradually return to normal physical activity, letting pain be your guide.
