I fell 13 days ago and pulled my inner groin on my right leg.

Customer Question

I fell 13 days ago and pulled my inner groin on my right leg. I still can't walk. I have put ice packs and warm baths but nothing is helping. I stay off of it as much as I can using a computer chair with wheels. I have to go back to work in 2 weeks. What can I do? Getting really frustrated. I really need to go back to work. I'm a supervisor at a college who host's the buffalo bills and my boss is really counting on me to be there by July 28th. I really need to be there.

Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
I am sorry you pulled your groin muscle
you need to see a doctor and get an ultrasound or MRI scan of your groin to see if you tore your groin muscle
if you work in sports, you know how long groin pulls or groin muscle tears can take to heal.
it sounds like you really injured yourself seriously.
you might benefit from Traumeel to the area to help decrease pain.
increasing protein and vitamin C in your diet can help your muscles heal faster.

some people use Kinesiology tape to help support the inner thigh adductor muscle to help with healing.
physical therapy or ultrasound therapy could help decrease inflammation and help with healing.
accupuncture could help decrease pain.
some atheletes use dimethyl sulfoxide to help decrease muscle and joint pains after sports injury to help with fast healing.
