I just went to the physical therapist at work for the nagging hip/butt pain that has made running progressively more painful for the past few months. He had me do all kinds of exercises, he stretched my legs, he watched me walk. And this is what he said: "Your biomechanics are such that your trunk and posterior have more lateral movement then they should."

Do you know what that means? I move my ass too much when I walk.

The prescription: no running for a while, and daily hip exercises. Yeehaw.

me too! My seductive hip wiggle turned out to be one of the culprits for my back, hip, and knee pain. Now I just forward march. phooey. Sorry to hear you've been in pain -- PTs are basically god's gift, and I hope yours gets you back to full running health quickly!
