A groin pull or groin strain can happen when people put too much stress on the muscles in their groin and thigh area. If the muscles are tensed too forcefully or too suddenly, they can get over-stretched or torn. People who play sports that require a lot of change in direction while running and jumping are more susceptible to groin pulls. For example, groin pulls often occur in soccer and football players, and they make up about 10% of all injuries in professional hockey players.
– Groin pain is often caused by a muscle, tendon or ligament strain.
– Injury is a common cause of groin pain, but it can also develop gradually over time.
– Groin pain can be exacerbated by continued use of the injured area.

It’s not uncommon for athletes to develop groin muscle pain. These injuries can be extremely debilitating and may even take someone out of the game for a few weeks or months. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent the development of groin pain and ensure the athlete is playing at the top of their game. One of the most effective ways to prevent this type of injury is to stretch the groin muscles and use an anti-inflammatory drug. Doing this regularly can greatly reduce the chances of developing a groin injury and will keep the athlete playing throughout the season. This is a useful tip to keep in mind if you’re an athlete, especially as the season starts to pick up!
I have been visiting the clinic for the past two years and my experience has been great. Dr. Kant is very knowledgeable and he treats his patients with full dedication and patience. I underwent treatment for my neck and back pain and I got relief after just a few sessions of dry needling. So, I would recommend everyone to visit KALP HEALTH CARE for any kind of physiotherapy treatment.
At the age of 53, a back problem is scary when a doctor tells you that you need 10 days of bed rest or surgery! I went to Kalp expecting the usual steps of physiotherapy, but I couldn't even stand up straight or get out of bed without shooting pain. This is an example of not judging a book by its cover. Dr. Kant is a simple man but a magician when it comes to his treatment. He is passionate and positive about his treatment and knows the human body like the back of his hand. A dedicated team with Dr. Monika and Dr. Rakesh got me on my feet in just 3 days. This is the best treatment I could have asked for!
Dr. Kant and his clinic are excellent in treating muscular and spinal issues - it's very clean and hygienic. Dr. Kant has great understanding and knowledge, quickly reaching to the root of what's wrong and able to provide Relief within a few sessions. I found a solution to my spine problem after seeking treatment from Dr. Kant - I had tried all kinds of treatments before but hadn't been able to find any relief.

Schedule a doctor’s visit if you have:
Severe groin pain. Groin pain that doesn’t improve with home treatment within a few days. Mild testicle pain lasting longer than a few days. A lump or swelling in or around a testicle.
With rest and proper treatment, most groin strains heal on their own in about 4–8 weeks. More severe groin strains can take longer. It is very important to let the strain heal fully and get the doctor’s OK before going back to activities.
The most common cause of groin pain is a muscle, tendon or ligament strain, particularly in athletes who play sports such as hockey, soccer and football. Groin pain might occur immediately after an injury, or pain might come on gradually over a period of weeks or even months.
Ice the inside of your thigh to reduce pain and swelling. Experts recommend doing it for 20 to 30 minutes every 3 to 4 hours for 2 to 3 days, or until the pain is gone.
Compress your thigh using an elastic bandage or tape.
Take anti-inflammatory painkillers.
