What is a groin injury?
Groin injury usually refers to a groin strain. This describes an injury to the muscles that stretch between your pelvic area and the inside of your thigh. Groin strain occurs when these muscles are stretched beyond their usual or safe limit. Over-extension of the groin muscles can cause some of the muscle tissue to tear as well as over-stretching the main muscles. The damage caused by this injury can caused symptoms ranging from a short spell of localised pain to a much longer process of sever pain, causing difficulty in walking and moving the leg and thigh area.
Treatment for groin injury
The main treatment for groin injury is rest. As a result, a severe groin injury can mean restricted movement and time off of work for a period of up to 6 weeks while the muscles repair themselves. Due to the robust nature of the groin muscles, any treatment is almost always non-operative. This means that the main treatment options are generally as follows:
- Rest – by far the best remedy for groin strain is rest; lots of it. Because your groin muscles control most of your lower body movement, including walking and driving, resting these muscles effectively puts you out of action for a long period of time. The most common cause of a second groin injury is not allowing a sufficient period of rest during your first injury.
- Stretching – when any muscle is not used for a long time, it becomes less flexible. Your doctor is likely to give you a regime of gentle stretching exercises to help build your groin muscles back up to full strength. Following your doctor’s instructions carefully will help you recover as quickly as possible.
- Ice – your doctor may recommend the use of ice on your injury, particularly in the first 48 hours. If your injury was a sporting accident, you might also use ice after a period of activity, once you are starting to resume your sports activities.
- Heat – if you are going back to a sport following your injury, you might use heat on your injury before exercising. This will help your muscles to adjust to the exercise, in place of a strenuous warm up activity. Heat and ice should be used at the direction of your doctor though, as it is important to use them at the right times.
