    Question Upper and outer thigh pain after a pop in the hip flexor area

    So 2 weeks ago I was squatting(I had fixed and corrected my form a week prior, I got
    My high bar squat to look like how Olympic squatters do it) and at the bottom of the hole above my quad there was a pop and felt like a ripple or wave in that area and it started to hurt. I began stretching it the next day. After that I was able to do split squats and lunges with minor pain in that area of my leg but still felt some discomfort. Leg extensions are painless.

    Now it’s been hurting when I lay on the ground and bring my knee to my chest (pain is at the top of thigh, outer region to middle of thigh) stretching my leg on the ground by crossing it over my body, and opening it away from my body also causes pain. It’s like a tight pinching, aching pain. Also hurts when I stretch the leg straight lying down and I also notice some
    Pain in the same area when I flex my quad standing up. It also hurts in that area to raise my knee up when standing. Body weight squatting to parallel and below also causes pain to arise in that same area of my leg, again the upper middle thigh to outer thigh.

    It seems to be coming off of the middle quad muscle at the top right above where that part of the quad starts to go back down(sorry my anatomy terms are forgotten). Wondering what I did, and if anyone else has done this before and what’s the best way to go about it? Should I try to still work my legs or should not do any kind of squats at all? Best way to heal it?

    You could have a muscle tear or something similar to that. Try staying out of the gym for a couple of weeks and go from there.

    That does sound like a muscle tear. Maybe try massaging your quad very gently. How is feeling so far??
