Groin injury


Hi -



Anyone has any tips on what is the best way to treat a pulled groin??.....I pulled it about a month ago and did not interrupt my training.  I dont think is that serious of a pull since, as I said, I've been able to do my runs anbd it has not gotten any worse.  It really bothers me though, and just won't go away....I decided I am resting this entire week and see if it improves...I've been streching it and icing it for the last week or so and I think it has somewhat improved...any tips would be greatly appreciated!



Thanks in advance

    Hi Sergio.  WELCOME to the MCM Forum.



    I have had many injuries, but not a Groin injury, YET.  Great! Totally just jinxed myself. You're doing the right things, it seems, with resting/icing/stretching.  Rest is probably the best thing you can do for yourself right now.  Sorry, wish I could be more helpful.  I'm surprised you haven't gotten any other advice. 



    Here's to a speedy recovery,

    Thisis an injury to the adductor muscles called a muscle strain. When a muscle is strained, the muscle is stretched too far. This happened to me a few years ago, it took 6 month to heal! I continued with my training and marathon a month! Not too smart!



    Icing is good, but try not to aggravate it by stretching, this will tear the muscle fibers, and can even cause a complete tear of the muscle. You can probably continue training as long as it feels comfortable and doesn't heart.



    Good Luck

    This is one injury that I haven't had either, thank you very much!  I try to let someone with experience have their say first.  I agree with PersianP, particularly to minimize stretching. I don't know how it feels so I can't advise on training while it heals.
