Pulled groin muscle, painful to work out, bruise in thigh

Hi, I thought I pulled my groin muscle almost two weeks ago. It is painful when I work out (kicking, tumbling), especially when that leg is fully extended with no bend at the knee . It does not seem to have recovered noticeably after stretching and abstaining from working out for almost two weeks. I tried to work out today, and noticed there was a bruise that I had not seen there previously in the center of my inner thigh.

Thanks for writing to us.
It seems that you have injured your muscle and there is a hematoma too in that area. Such soft tissue injuries do take 3 to 4 weeks for proper healing that too if you provide full rest to the area. Avoid all types of exercises and take mild anti inflammatory drugs for recovery.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
