Hip flexor sprain
Hey guys, looking for some input on this. Have been bogged down by some hip flexor pain last couple of weeks. I was swamped at work and stuck to the desk for long hours for a couple of months, and then when I got back to tennis, felt some stiffness in the right leg hip joint. It's not very bad, but I can feel it a bit when playing. Never had this issue before.
I have seen the Orthopedic specialist for hip and he said it was a sprained hip flexor and recommended stretching.
It will be winter soon and have to shutdown tennis anyway in about a month, so wondering if I can continue playing until then. Apart from that, there's also the concern of weight going up with inactivity.
