I had surgery done on my left hip last April for a labral tear. They also shaved down part of my hip because it was impinging mobility and a possible cause of the tear. Since then hip mobility seems to have increased but I cannot take advantage of it, whenever I squat with my knees tucked inward I feel a sharp pain in my left groin/psoas area of my hip and also pain in my left knee. I can squat with my knees outward and I have no pain. This pain affects me greatly because I am a skateboarder and most tricks involve squatting with the knees turned inward. I recently went to physical therapy for five weeks for psoas tendonitus. After an MRI it turned out there was no tendonitus and the Dr. decided to do a cortisone shot to reduce swelling and fluid in that area. I slight split in the labral was also shown that I was told would heal on its own. It has been a week since the cortisone shot and there is still no improvement. I am trying to find out why there may still be pain even though I have gone through surgery, physical therapy and a cortisone shot.
