    right hip pain after squatting


    I've been squatting twice a week for almost two years now I've made great gains I'd say my squats are my best lift, recently about the last month my right hip has been killing me about two hours after squatting and very sore the next day, but if I warm up properly (which I always do) I can squat again three days later without pain until afterwards, now my problem is when I hit parallel and begin my travel back up my right hip drops a little lower than my left and I feel like my right leg is doing more of the lift. Now I know this is my problem so how do I fix it drop the weight start over? Do more single leg work? etc etc thanks

    Hips are extremely complicated due to the vast musculature that originates/inserts in the area.
