    [size=12]It has been 3 years 6 months since I got a ELS (entry level separation) form the Marines for my hip on the Tensor Facscia Muscle. Every time I drive more than 2 hours it hurts, every time I sit more than 3 hours it hurts. After working out for 30 mins it hurts, anything over an hour, and I have to get a cab home (in the suburbs).

    So do you know of any exercises that would allow me to straighten the muscle slowly?

    And do you know of any workouts that would allow me to workout without putting the strain on my hip?

    exercise is supposed to hurt... that said, with your kind of injury I would talk to your doctor about stretching with yoga. Find a hot yoga class if you can, as the heat will help break down the lactic acid in the muscles. Too much acid in the muscles makes us feel sore. You should REALLY talk to an Orthopedic Surgeon that specializes in sports and sports related injuries. Its very difficult for someone who doesn't have the whole picture to make any "real" recommendations. Leave that to the experts...

    I´d go to a sports physio and ask them. It´s really hard to say anything more helpful over the net.

    As far as cardio is concerned, an upper body ergometer would work awesome for ya. There're also rope-pulling/climbing machines that would be pretty sweet for ya too.

    Get yourself to a pool. Swimming & deep water aqua jogging.

    This is the best answer. I bet your Doctor told you the same thing!

    Can't swim, I have Superior Canal Dehisence Syndrome. I am overly sensitive to light sound, movement, pressure, humidity, and elevation. I get nausea running on a treadmill, my doctor said that if I lived any where else besides SoCal and its Mediterranean climate, I would have most likely been committed. So, until I can get scheduled for a surgery I will be taking things easy.
