What exactly did I do to my hip

Question: What exactly did I do to my hip

I did a full cardio workout and some weights then did my normal routine of 15 min of stretching after. I decided to go the the stretching cage and do a hp flexor stretch and popped 3 times in my left hip area causing terrible pain and within an hr or so was not able to put any weight on left leg/ saw the Dr and got a cortisone shot and 6 days later I am still in pain . I am a 57 yr female

An MRI or at least a hip xray would be a good idea to rule out any bony damage. its strange to cause much damage with such a stretch but osteoporosis is not uncommon in women of your age group!
