Hi…I’m very new to this site and the mobility priniciples. I’m a competitive martial artist who is getting a bit long in the tooth for fighting. I want to keep going but I seem to keep injuring my groin. I ice it and stretch, but I could use some new ideas on how to not only heal but to also prevent these injuries.
Are you getting injured when doing the same move/element or different move/elements?
It may be a deviation from proper technique with the skill, move, or element. Or it could be a mobility issue.
Have you looked up/down stream of where you are seeing the issue?
