Hip pain & differing diagnoses
So, I've been struggling with recurrent pain in my left hip for some time and am getting nowhere fast. It's best described as a sharp pain that kicks in after 40-50k, like a muscle is always 'on'. In itself it's obviously a problem but what is more of an issue is that I have diametrically opposed opinions from two professionals, as below:
My bike fitter is adamant that my left leg is shorter than the other and has fitted wedges and shims to alleviate the problem.
My osteopath believes it's a functional matter and simply requires manipulation and work on the affected areas.
I tried to get the two to talk but that failed, the fitter never responded to several attempts from the osteo.
So I've been reduced to experimenting myself, between two wedges in the left shoe all the way down to shims only. While I'm aware that retraining the body on the bike takes time, I've experienced no significant improvement.
So my questions are whether anyone has an idea of what the issue might actually be, ways to resolve it and what to do on a personal and professional basis as I am caught between two completely different opinions and therefore cannot progress one or other.
