Been rehabbing a groin injury for several months but still have pain.  Suggestions?

VIsit your doctor: Groin injuries can take up to 12 months to heal. However, you may have a hernia. The best way to diagnose a hernia is by physical exam, but they can be missed. Sometimes a 2nd exam or an exam by a different doctor may identify a hernia. For my patients with groin pain that do not have a hernia and are not improving after 6 months, i recommend an mri. ...Read more

Doci , I have been suffering from a groin injury since last year, have been taking antinflammatory drugs but it seems they are not working out for me.

Further evaluation: Groin injuries can be difficult and often take several months for complete resolution but a year is a long time. This definitely warrants more intensive evaluation looking for more significant injuries. A sports hernia is a possible consideration depending on the exact location. Also possibly a partial tendon/ muscle tear. I would definitely recommend you see a a sports medicine physician. ...Read more

How will I know when my groin injury has recovered and I can get back to soccer?

How will I know when my groin injury has recovered and I can get back to soccer?

Pain free resistance: Adequate rest for a groin injury is essential for recovery. Once you are pain free with groin stretching, then advance to resisted groin exercises. If you can do this pain free, i would return to light jogging and ensure that the adductors are rock solid before returning to explosive sports. There is nothing worse than resting a groin pull and then reinjuring it due to inadequate rehabilitation. ...Read more

Can a groin injury add fat to the inner thighs? After having a groin injury I've noticed that I have more fat in that area

Can a groin injury add fat to the inner thighs? After having a groin injury I've noticed that I have more fat in that area

My hunch is that: you may be interpreting swollen tissue as fatty tissue? When trauma or injury occurs, inflammation develops. And one of the inflammatory processes is the production of fluid in and around the injured tissues. This extra fluid expands tissues; the tissue feels softer, more fleshy. While not exactly the same consistency as fat, it is similar. Allow to heal (don't over exert), have patience:) ...Read more

When I run, my penis seems to get buried into my body and it's extremely uncomfortable. It's affecting my daily life. I have a groin injury also?

When I run, my penis seems to get buried into my body and it's extremely uncomfortable. It's affecting my daily life. I have a groin injury also?

Shrinkage.: When not in use, the penis may shrink to extreme degrees, aka the "shower and grower phenomenon". If your discomfort is physical pain, consider a HealthTap personal consult. If your discomfort is psychological then consider you don't need to use your penis while running so it's OK for it to be buried. Pain from groin injury can cause shrinkage also. Use gentle stretching to rehab a groin strain. ...Read more
