Severe Hip Pain After Car Accident.

Recommended Posts

Some may recall My car was destroyed by a rogue driver at a filling station..I escaped with my life by jumping out of the way, but the video revealed that I tripped over the petrol filling pipe and effectively landed on my hip from about hip height.

I have had serious hip pain in the last 6 to 7 weeks...The Doctors said it would get better on its own...Stronger and stronger meds and relaxants have done nothing....it has got worse the last week or two.

Doctor recommended a soft tissue specialist, whom I haven seen yet...dont know how long its going to take to get an appointment.

Any way, I came accross this website: http://www.do-it-you...ain-relief.html

As is usual a google search brings up loads of blogger sites with sales of books and memberships and potions etc etc.

This one goes through 3 techniques....all of which seem to be the soft tissue speciality which I am supposed to be seeing.

Anyway, Sunday, after a painful car trip, I resolved to try these techniques on the bits that were hurting....All around both hips and sacrum, I pulled and kneeded....indeed got some releif but it all froze up again when I stood up....then I read the bottom of the page about balancing the body....If I had done this first, I would have had a result yesterday.

I discovered that my front and side thigh muscles were very tender all the way from the knee to the side ball of the hip...just as he said.

I have taken several hours releasing these two muscles, and heck...I can stand, get up from bed, even made lunch..

Still a bit delicate, but i only finished a couple of hours ago.

If you have pain...it will be worth a look.

Of yeah...one last thing I did, was lie on my front and press both hands on the sacrum as hard as I could, then moved my hips around...painful at first, ( same pain as the tension in the other muscles), so I carried on as long as I could...the pain subsided...rested and repeated....

So, may be back at light duties very soon indeed, when the NHS promised me weeks more of bed and posting.

EDIT...spelling and sense

Good to hear.

Get yourself a triggerpoint self massage roller. Available in most running shops. Excellent and pretty hard core. (much better than a foam roller) Its like getting a deep tissue massage of someone who knows what then are doing.

I use this on my calves, quads and ITB after exercise - and it keeps the muscles nice and supple.

I am sure you can do similar with your own hands - but it will be very hard work. This utilises your own body weight to put the effort in for you.

Recommended. ;)

Do you have a specific recommendation - it seems like there are loads of them.

Any good?

I use one from tptherapy.com

amazon

Seems to be the main one i see in running shops etc.

Small size and also hollow - so can pack it away easy for travel - and even store clothes etc in the centre.

If you use it with your full weight balanced on it - serious deep massage. Can be painful if you are tight - but that meant its working and required.

I seem to have a remaining issue when sitting now, on the left side of the bottom 4 or 5 vertibrae....they are mobile, but need a rest after 20 minutes of driving as an annoying pain moves slowly down the legs.

How does one use this in this area?

have you considered spunking a couple of hundred quid on a good massage therapist?

This would be the best plan. Do it yourself massage is good for keeping it ticking over though.

You can use it for lower back - just lie back on it and roll back and forward. It comes with example pics.

I'm glad you escaped more serious injury and wish you a speedy recovery. It must have been terrifying.

Find a good physiotherapist. The cost will be recoverable from the insurers of the party at fault.

may not be so easy.

there is a loophole many will not be aware of.

i may well have been unlucky enough to fall into it....big time....nothing to do with me and my insurance by the way.

Is it something to do with the accident happening on private land?

Sorry to hear about your hip BTW. Hope your groovy was unharmed.

Even if you have to pay for it - will most likely be worth it.

No, not private land....it lies in the proof of negligence that must accompany a claim. Whilst there was a third party that took me out, was insured and all witnesses and video see the accident as it happened......

I would go and see a chiropractor first before the massage - especially as you are a girlie :)

That was a nasty accident you had and such falls can misalign our pelvis or twist the vertebrae in the back - either or both can result in hip pain. If these are indeed out and not corrected then no amount of massage or pain killers will solve the problem.

Surprisingly, it is remarkably quick for a chiropractor to correct this.

I started seeing a chiropractor about two months ago after years of pain problems in my chest - seen all sorts of GPs, cardiologists, massage therapists, acupuncturists, holistic therapists, osteopaths (all in that order) and finally got round to seeing the chiropractor. I wish I had gone to see her 6 years ago.

Not only did the chiropractor immediately spot what was wrong with me but she corrected it in two sessions and it allowed me to do something that I was unable to do for years - go for long walks. Then, because I was suddenly going on these long walks, I began to get hip pain in my right hip so I mentioned it to her... and she simply did something - a correction - to my pelvis/lower back and the pain went away.

She also felt my neck, asked if there was pain in a particular spot - there was - and she simply corrected it. The pain just went.

Bottom line - if you have a misaligned pelvis (happens more easily to women than to men - go figure) or twisted vertebrae then no amount of soft tissue massage from a therapist will cure the problem.

The problem is you don't really know who to go to first. With annoying things i have found on a few occasions i have had to go to a few specialists before getting a result.

If its tight muscles causing the issue - a chiro won't be much use. And vice versa.

Unfortunately it usually costs a wee bit of money - but more than worth it imo. No point being tight about these things.

On a side note - i have never had a physio recommend me going to a chiro - and vice versa.

Both however have recommended deep tissue massage. Doesn't help you much though sorry :(

Firstly, Im a man, as per my avatar. delighted the chiro worked for you.

Im seeing a lady tomoz, shes not a chiro or osteo, she deals in deep tissue manipulation.

I explained my problem, and she reckoned that after a fall, you get swelling and bruising, then this all subsides, and the issue can be that some soft tissues get what is left of the gloop reside on the surface...I actually saw this on the interweb, its a sort of membrane that allows muscles and things to slip and slide as they should, but a damaged set can stop that movement..

Seeing her tomoz, so Ill let you know.

Ive great faith in some chiropractors, there was a bunch of them in chelmsford that did me great things when I was much younger...went in unable to stand, walked out same session.

Others have been abortions, got the xray round the wrong way and worked on the wrong leg, and another made my condition worse.

My Docs recommended this lady, so im going to give her a go first....another problem is that I cant eat much and when i do its like a dog, as moving my jaw makes the pain come....so Ive lost a lot of weight the last 6 weeks.....am waking up dizzy, but i dont have the will to go to the kitchen....Family home today and of course they went shopping and they brought me a hot pasty from the pasty shop....feeling better already.

The thing is, each type of manipulator has their own story....the muscle people say the bones are just blocks of calcium that the muscles and soft tissues align, the bone people say without the bone, the muscles just flop to nothing.

I prefer to think of the body as an old time ship ( not my idea)...it has rigging ( muscles), masts and spars (bones) and joints holding the lot in place.

TBH, if I can get rid of this pain........Id confess to being a bankers bitch if it helped.

I thought the video you posted showed you as a lady? You're not theboltonfury's best mate are you?

Errm, don't quite know how to break it to you, but ahem, your avatar is, well you know, slightly on the feminine side of the spectrum. I can see why TMT jumped to the wrong conclusion. Not meant as a criticism.

Im whatever you want me to be.

anyway...just shows how caring family is...I asked baby Loo whilst out shopping to purchase me a tennis ball, so I could try the self help on my hamstrings, as bending down to the floor is very painful.

she forgot of course.

So, inspired by everyones postings, I took two tramadol, and ventured into the kitchen, looking for a rolling pin. found it hidden in some secret place, and asked Mrs Loo to roll it up and down....after much complaining, ( from her) we found some very tight spots.....fed up with the moaning, I let her go back to her book....but oh.....the relief......I can stand.....(could be the tramadol but that hasnt worked before).

so, manual technique on the thighs, rolling pin on the hamstrings, and a professional doing it tomorrow...looking forward to depression lifting very soon indeed......or severe disappointment as it all gets worse tomorrow morning.

thanks for your support...

Meanwhile, Im waiting for the Doctors to respond....

Well Bloo, I hope it all works out for you, and I owe you a seriously big thank you for your OP.

I've suffered from tight hips and tight muscles for a couple of years, and have been doing monthly trips to the chiro to get my back / pelvis realigned and the tightness alleviated. After watching the videos you linked to, I remembered something an old chiro used to do which the current one doesn't - releasing tension on my piriformis muscles (in your **** cheeks). So I took to them this evening with a tennis ball - hurt like hell but my God it feels better now. I guess you'll know from your OP what I mean when I say the feeling of release is incredible. So a real heart felt thank you - cheers.

Also thanks to ccc - I used to use a piece of pipe lagging to ease off my ITBs but I've splashed out on the roller and the ball now. Quite honestly, there's no amount I wouldn't pay to feel like this more often.

Don't get it. The driver must have been negligent, if he/she wasn't then the accident wouldn't have happened. You have suffered injury as the result of his/her actions. Any costs you incur as a direct result of the other party's negligence are recoverable from him/her.

Anyway as the others have said glad you haven't suffered from more serious injuries.

fantastic.:)

The aim of my post was to help others with my recent experience.....It seems that these few exercises can do a whole world of good...this is a total surprise to me as the "professionals" all seem to say its them or the drugs. threads like these also get great contributors who teach us all things too.

More posters experiences can only help the 99% of people that get back pain....course, some people might have serious injuries and obviously, they should seek professional advice first...I imagine running a roller over a fracture isnt going to help much.
