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

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

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
