Hi I have serious groin pain in inner thigh without any inflammatio.Please advise as i feel the pain but doesn't disturb me from walking , ?
R.I.C.E.: Try ice and elevation first. 20 minutes on, 30-40 minutes off. Keep the foot above the heart.

If ice doesn't improve your swelling, go see your regular doctor or orthopedist. Good luck! ...Read more
