I have a client. We have established her right Glutues are not firing properly. This has been going on a while, leading to her right leg shortening, and when really bad, the knee pulling medially leading to a pronounded limp. Work on the muscles help but the problem re-occurs. Once she gets walking after a few minutes the muscles in the buttocks start to work properly. It is when she starts walking, around the house, that she finds she cannot access the glutues at all as there is a very sharp pain in her groin area which blocks the gluteus activation. Looks like the abductors are involved. If the leg is worked in rotation there is no pain, it loosens us and she can walk better. Sometimes it gives a releasing pop which helps but is shortlived.
Any ideas would be most welcome.
