I have just turned 57 and play 8-a-side football 2 or 3 times a week. I also work on the exercise bike and do what I shall describe as Yoga - once a week - (on the WII) to stretch my body out.
I am very frustrated that I appear very fit on the bike (no impact) but running around highlights the weakness around my hips, particularly pushing off and turning. This seems due to my gluteus maximus being my weak link. If I push deep into them, it does feel sore.
I never jog as my "shock absorbers" feel shot.
I have had massages and seen an osteopath.
I also saw a podiatrist who gave me some high insoles to wear.
I don't believe doing lunges etc will help as they are putting further pressure on my weak area.
I don’t suffer pain but do get a little stiff sitting down.
Is there anything I can do - maybe a scan or x-ray - to find out what is causing this and what I might be able to do to improve things?
A doctor would not have the knowledge.
Anyone doing sport is always looking to improve whatever the age.
