I’m a healthy 35 year old. I played basketball about 4 months ago with inappropriate shoes and did some damage around my groin. If I’m lying on my back it’s hard to lift either of my legs straight up, and I also feel it in my lower abdomen. I assumed this would just heal but it has lingered though much less intense. I’m able to do most things but just to be sure I tried taking a month off exercise but that still hasn’t done the trick. I’m currently on the road in Colombia so not sure what next step is appropriate. Any advice would be very much appreciated!

Ok thanks Kaitlin I watched all the videos and did some of the stretches I could do at home. Let’s see, let me try to answer your questions….I haven’t done much except rest and try keeping off it. This seems to have helped some but it’s not getting me all the way and I know it’ll deteriorate if I do something again (surf, basketball, etc…). Is ice a good idea? Anti-inflammatory meds? Currently I’m just stretching based on these vids.I hadn’t really looked upstream downstream, I’m not very sophisticated on these matters. But I got in there pretty carefully yesterday and noticed tension down my right leg into the calf. Previous to this I’ve had some knee pain in the right knee so maybe these are all connected. I watched the video mentioning to even stretch the neck so I’m doing that as well.Any other advice beyond stretching is much appreciated, but maybe I just need to dig into “the nastiness.” on a regular basis.Cheers,Jordan

Suffice it to say, ice is out. Anti-inflammatory meds are double out. Check out the book “Iced.” We must turn the ship around and escape the “Ice Age.”

Thanks Scott. Ok, if those things are out what is in? I guess the moves seen in the videos. I’ve been massaging myself based on those vids and I think it’s helping.
