    1.) Take her to see a sports medicine specialist. Ask your local university staff who they send their athletes to. You may also have a pediatric sports medicine specialist in your area, I'd recommend this first, as your daughter (you didn't mention age/height/weight) may still be growing.

    2.) Be extremely wary of soliciting and/or heeding medical advice found on the internet.

    Curious - Is she pitching indoors right now and with no rubber to push off of?

    Not being able to pitch is going to be very hard on her.

    I know this may be hard to take. Talking about obesity and weight in this day and age is a difficult thing to do. With that height and weight, she's 2.5 points away from being obese on the BMI scale. You should try to get her to focus on diet and exercise that she can do during her downtime to shed that weight and strengthen her core. Most people are overweight because they have unaddressed emotional issues, and not because they have no self control or don't know which foods to eat and how to exercise. If she can't pitch due to pain, she may become depressed which may make matters worse. Her long term health is in jeopardy irregardless of her ability to pitch or not.

    In short, your daughter is in a very tough spot and has a lot of needs right now. Pitching may be a priority for both of you, but it may not be something she can continue to do until other issues are addressed.

    I will reiterate this advice, because it's always the best. Definitely see a specialist.

    I will also say I have that! It didn't show up till after my pitching career, but my right hip often felt like it had a bubble in it that needed to crack, and would become painful after extended periods of walking. I had to see a doctor, rehab, and TRAIN HARD to keep the problem at bay. I had to get together with a personal trainer and come up with a program tailored to my body, and I still have to do it at least twice a week to keep my hips from totally crapping out on me.

    Reason I asked is that my DD will get an annoying hip discomfort with excessive indoor pitching with no rubber to push of of.

    my daughters emotional issues are fine she is a happy healthy teenager. she is on a fitness n nutrition plan from her trainers at hs. not thinking her hip pain has to do with that at all. im a nurse so depression is also something we are in no wat concerned with. basically was just asking if there was something we coyld do extra to strengthen that hip not for psych eval

    EA,

    Get her to a doctor who hopefully will refer you to a physical therapist for further diagnosis.

    It could be caused by something simple but it could be something serious in its first stages.

    Example: ligamates are held in place against bones by a sinewlike material. Simply put, they are held in the proper position like a rope sliding through a small sinue tunnel. That sinew tunnel is the exact size in diameter for the ligamate to slide through. If the ligamate gets enflamed and swells, even slightly, it is painful and can make a ' popping' sensation. These sinew tunnels can also become unglued, so to speak, from the bone and then the ligamates simply flop around and the ligamate canbnot function properly. There is a possibility this might be happeniong or is about to happen.

    You need to see an MD and take this aggrevation and get it diagnosed before it turns into something worse.
