Default Hip pain after Field throwing/what did I do?

Hey after some field work earlier this week (Tuesday) I am experiencing hip pain right on the ball where the femur joins the hip. I didn’t feel anything during the field work but definitely felt it the next AM at work. The pain level seems to fluctuate, sometimes hardly any up to affecting my walking stride. Anyone else ever had this happen?

I bet you're slamming your body "through" the plant leg and getting really jammed up. Trying to stop yourself from tipping past the brace leg, but having too much weight both on the left and right of the plant if viewed from the back of the teepad. Torso on one side, butt/left leg on the other.

Does it feel like your brace leg stops you dead like running into a wall? Like your back hip goes straight into your front hip? If you're on any loose ground does your plant foot slide sideways/blow out targetward?

To be honest, I don’t really know/remember. I wasn’t intentionally doing much different from my normally bad form. It’s definitely possible I guess, I plan on not throwing until the pain subsides (also helps it supposed to rain for the new few days)

Yeah definitely don't throw again until the pain goes away.

Then I'd probably recommend throwing a few shots and video'ing it, and post it. So it can be identified what to fix.

If you don't know/aren't able to change it on your own, then better off to identify it after only a few throws then try to change things for next time out. Rather than trying to guess at it for many many throws blindly during a long session.

1. Yeah stop throwing and rest.
2. I'd recommend seeing a PT, especially if the pain doesn't start getting better with rest.
3. After pain free, video yourself. I'm pretty sure I already know what it looks like - over the top, but it will help you see how far off your form is. Just compare your balance and posture to the top pros and you should see it.
4. One Leg Drill should help.

I had weird hip pain issues last week and was really worried. It was like a shooting pain in the hip, it happened after I did some field work in ****ty conditions (rainy and I was tired and unfocused). I rested for a night or 2 and it just kind of went away.

When I experience pain when throwing backhand I switch to forehand so i can keep on practicing and vice versa.
