Had fell on butt. Have tenderness in inner thigh. No pain to sit or walk. Advice?

Last week i fell on my butt while at roller derby. I felt a sharp pain and it almost knocked the wind out of me. I dont have a bruise but i do have some tenderness in my inner thigh area now and a little in the spot that i hit when i fell. It does feel strained when i try to skate. I am able to sit, walk and lay down without any pain. What did i injure? I am 37 and lead an active life. I am not fat, but I do have some excess weight.

Thanks for posting your query.
If you are able to bear the weight on your limb without much pain then a bone injury is unlikely. You need to continue with rest and ice . Most of the times it is a soft tissue injury but it takes at least 3-4 days for the pain to subside
Hope this will helps you. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

From the description, it seems that you have ADDUCTOR MUSCLE STRAIN causing a sharp pain on the upper inner aspect of thigh.

This is generally self limiting and will resolve with the following measures -

* Rest to the injured part and dont involve in activities which puts additional strain on the injured tissues.
* Ice packing should be applied for about 20 minutes once in every 2 hours.
* Use elastic compression bandage if the area is swollen
* Analgesic & anti inflammatory medications as needed

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
