    Has anyone pulled or strained their groin and gone through a rehabilitation process?

    I just recently (last weekend) strained by groin and have done a little of research on the web on how to rehab it back to health. Although I haven't found much information pertaining to what types of excersises I should be doing as part of this rehab process.

    Yes, I have seen a doctor about it and he recommended rest, which I plan on taking, I just want to get an idea of what I should be doing as it heals.

    stretch and stretch some more, strengthen the abductors and adductors if you can with bands.

    My worst fear is to reinjure it in the future, so I plan on giving it plenty of rest.


    I'll take a look into the bands, thx.

    This is kind of offtopic but does anyone do the hip adductor/abductor machines?

    This is great advice along with alternating heat and ice and massage. I've strained both of mine. It took me about 3 months to be 100%.

    Ya, it sux but if you don't let them heal completely they'll keep pulling all of the time.

    people who strain their groins often have tight hip flexors

    lots of adduction exercises, PNF patterns, stretches as well as heat and massage

    one patient i know went through physical therapy for 4 months and he is a professional soccer player

    From a functional standpoint they are (unless you ride horses), as the adductors role changes depending on the degree of hip flexion.
