Does anybody have any stretches or techniques that have helped them in the past? I already do samson stretches on a very regular basis and with BJJ we work through plenty of other stretches.
I had terrible hip flexor issues for a while from years of ice hockey, I found the lunge/sampson stretch to work. Also just recovery techniques like ZMA and lower back stretching on the floor (as it all has to do with the pelvis). Hamstring stretching might help as well.
Other than that sounds like tendonitis, so fish oil and ice baths can help if that is the underlying cause.
