Torn adductor/ham: With this type of injury and bruising, I often think first of a partial tear of the groin/adductor or hamstring tendons or muscles. It would be wise to try and get a definitive diagnosis and receive a plan for rehab, recovery time and return-to-play recommendations. It may take several months to heal.

Yes: Yes, you should see your doctor for your pain. What you are experiencing may be referred pain. Causes could be a strained muscle or a pinched nerve possibly from your back, hip problem, hernia or other causes. If it is indeed a "pulled groin muscle" you might benefit from physical therapy. ...Read more

I think I pulled a muscle in my leg/groin area. What can I do to make me better? Should I see a doctor?

I think I pulled a muscle in my leg/groin area. What can I do to make me better? Should I see a doctor?

Pulled Muscle Leg: When you "pull" a muscle in your leg, you have either a grade i, ii, or iii strain of that muscle. Grade I is an overstretch of the muscle and needs icing, stretching, and then restrengthening. Grade ii is a partial tear and more serious. Grade iii is a complete tear and can even require surgery (david lee for the golden gate warriors!). So, see an orthopedist and get a diagnosis. See a pt after. ...Read more

I run and bike for exercise. For the last couple years my groin has been getting very tight and I sometimes get a sharp pain when trying to lift my leg. It feels like a muscle pull. I can stretch and it feels better after warming up. I stretch freque?

Varies: There are multiple potential causes, I would not hesitate to be seen. In the field of orthopedics, one of the most common causes of groin pain is a problem with the hip itself. This can be from an early arthritic condition or something like a Labral tear. This would go along with the description of reproduction of pain when you lift your leg and also the stiffness you describe. ...Read more

Sounds like hip prob: With that pain pattern 1 would think of hip. This is especially true if there was no injury. If it came on due 2 a strain or injury it could b muscle, but the weight bearing seems 2 point 2 the hip especially if u have the pain just standing & not trying 2 move. The best plan is 2 b cn by an orthopedic surgeon 4 x-rays & exam. ...Read more

What else other than rice and vicodin can I do for a pulled groin muscle. The vicodin never really knocks the pain out?

What else other than rice and vicodin can I do for a pulled groin muscle. The vicodin never really knocks the pain out?

Anti-inflammatories: The best way to treat pulled muscle is by rest and gentle stretch. Having said that, the first line of medications that should be tried are anti-nfalmmatory meds, i.E advil or ibuprofen. If you don't have a history of gastritis or bleeding from the stomach, you can take these medications generously, i.E 2-3 200 mg tablets, at least 2 times a day for 4-5 days. ...Read more

Had my first pap smear on 3/20/17 and my groin has pain still as of 4/7/17. Is it a pulled groin muscle, as when she did the exam it hurt a lot.?

Had my first pap smear on 3/20/17 and my groin has pain still as of 4/7/17. Is it a pulled groin muscle, as when she did the exam it hurt a lot.?

Switch doctor: Regardless of your age and of your Gyn, sexual or obstetrical history...you should expect your Gyn exam, speculum exam or Pap test to be done skillfully and to cause you no pain. Since you felt that "when she did exam it hurt a lot", it would be wise to "switch" and to seek a more caring and more experienced clinician (doctor, Gyn, nurse-practitioner...) to check on your groin pain. ...Read more

Can you tell me how long before I can exercise after a pulled groin muscle?

Can you tell me how long before I can exercise after a pulled groin muscle?

Hard to say without: Knowing more specifics as in how severe the "pull" was. But in general even for mild strains, resting for 2 weeks isn't unreasonable with a graded (slow increase) reintroduction into exercise after that. Listen to your body, if you're not a professional athlete, "no pain, no gain" really doesn't apply to you. If it hurts, decrease the intensity or just avoid it all together and retry later. ...Read more
