GROIN STRAIN.

Postby FITZY » Wed May 25, 2011 1:18 pm

Have felt this whilst running during the last week or so and also conscious of it when walking.

Hurts more when running up hill but not sore enough to stop me running.

Gonna rest off for a week, ice and gentle stretches and if not better then i might have to go and get it checked out at the quacks!

Hoping it's nothing more serious! :-({|=

Mostly groin strain is non serious. Usually due to mild strain of the Gracilis though it can be any of the adductors.

There is loads of stuff on the net about it. For example

The key thing is go easy on the stretching in the early phases of the injury. Initially rest and cooling at the site of injury are helpful.
