    Three days before our trip to Cancun I pulled my groin when I was stepping into the Fire Truck and my lower font slipped putting all my weight on my left leg. I felt it and knew what it was quickly. It has been a couple months or so now and it still bothers me so I was curious to know if anyone had any experience with this and what did you do to speed up the recovery if anything.

    my injury was not quite the same. I was doing sprints during track practice last year and pulled muscles away from my hip. Well maybe more like tendons and ligaments (im not a biology major). The Doc just made me stretch a lot and slowly and told me to stay off my feet for a while. It also helped to do grapevines, and different stretches in the water. Yet again, my case is not the same as yours, but just a few ideas. Also, you said its been about a month ago. So im not sure what to do since the time has passed. I would assume about the same.

    I did this once trying to stay in the saddle. Learning dressage. Using knee pressure to guide the horse. This time I was on an Arab that thought dressage was for wienies. I shoulda used a spade bit, but think them too hard on the horse's mouth.

    He showed me. UP I went, nearly airborne ( horse's intent ) and as I came down, you guessed it, tried to maintain center by muscles working the wrong way inside my upper thigh. It took about 3 months for me to get past it. I did NOT get back up in the saddle til it was completely OK. Try a sitz bath, basically just a hot bath that you sit in, but only up to the lower hips - relaxes the muscle spasm.

    Kayaking is so much safer....

    I am sorry that this happened so close to your vacation Chizzad. I am not sure there is anything to 'speed' up the recovery, especially in such a short time frame until your trip. I would just rest it before the trip and let it heal and be careful with it on your trip. Have a great trip!

    BTW- I am sure if Gunner does not have time to give you a massage you will have many volunteers here to help you out!! icon_wink.gif

    So do I, if you can keep from getting aroused; which I'm sure you can, and massage gently around your crotch area and all area affected you'll feel less pain. Can't say how much less the intensity of the massage is up to you. It also makes for good foreplay and makes the entire experience much more heavenly, even when done alone. Wow, where the hell that come from... anyways yeah, massaging is good for you and your partner to do.

    muchmorethanmuscle saidit's not an issue of age. I have less injuries now than when I was in my 20's because I try to focus on areas like lower back, pelvic stabilization, rotator cuff muscles and stabilizer muscles in the legs.
    muchmorethanmuscle saidMe so sawreee! icon_redface.gif
    That ok, just keep concentrating on that "pelvic stabilization" Maybe you do some video demonstrations?

    Groin pulls are a pain in the ass.... actually they aren't
    they're a pain in the groin
    bad thing is like the lower back we use these muscles in everyday life
    esp getting up and sitting down
    because of this they are slow to heal
    another annoying thing is that you don't want to try to work them while they are healing in any way
    this will just prolong the healing process and keep you out of commission that much longer
