What is a groin injury?
What does a groin injury mean? There are two types of groin injuries that you can suffer. These are an overburdening injury and an acute injury. An overload in the groin is caused by incorrect rotational movements in the hip. An acute groin injury unexpectedly shoots into the groin, which can lead to a sprain or tear in the muscle.
How can you treat a groin injury?
When you have caught the groin injury, it is important that you stop exercising immediately. Cool the groin several times a day for the first few days. In addition, you can apply pressure bandages to the groin or purchase compression pants. When the worst swelling and groin pain has disappeared, you can start exercising again. A brace, tape and exercises can all help in recovery from a groin injury.

What can I do best against pain in my groin with walking?
The adductors group and the iliopsoas are loaded while walking and ensure that the pelvis is also rotated at every step during running, so that the groin is heavily loaded. Overloading is therefore common when running, especially during heavy training, competitions or poor terrain. The best thing to do is to keep enough rest. In addition, you can use compression pants that ensure that the pain complaints are reduced and the groin is supported.
What is the recovery time of a strained groin?
The recovery time of a strained groin depends on the severity of the groin injury. If you experience minor complaints, you will be rid of your complaints within 10 days and do not need medical treatment. With mild symptoms, a muscle crack will occur, so that you have to avoid overload and can use your leg to a limited extent. In case of severe complaints, you should immobilize your groin and all forms of load are not recommended. You will then be checked for recovery under the supervision of a physiotherapist and doctor.
How do I prevent overload in my groin?
You can take a number of actions to prevent your groin from becoming overloaded. For example, you need to perform the right exercises to prevent new injuries. In addition, it is also important that you train the (oblique) abdominal muscles, so that they increase in strength and an injury is less likely to arise. The use of good shoes with a good grip and a good warm-up also ensure that the overload in the groin takes place.
