A Tendon Wrapped In An Enigma

In early February, a client was hit by a car. Okay, just tapped actually, but the accident knocked them down and they went to the emergency room just in case something serious was amiss.

It has been two months since the accident and the client feels like they hurt worse now than they did the first month after the accident. For one thing, they have limited their physical activities. Secondly, they have been compensating for a sore knee. This may be creating dysfunction medially above and below the joint, contributing to tension in the hips and further up the system toward the head.

However, when I work the tendons, muscles and connective tissue in the crus and adductors, the pain that occurs when they lift their leg doesn't seem to abate. I'm confused as to why this client isn't getting relief from their pain, unless the accident left them with some kind of tendinitis.

Anyone who has any suggestions, or a link with a website that would give me insight into what is going on, I'd appreciate the information.
