How can a pulled muscle in the hip area be treated?

I fell two months ago, (basically did the splits!) didn t hurt much at time but week later I had a pulled muscle in my inner hip/groin area. hurts with movement of getting out of bed or out of car where I have to move my leg sideways. Do I just take it easy and wait for it to heal? Doesn t hurt when walking or standing but when I move just so it really hurts!

Dear patient

It seems you have pulled adductor muscle of thigh. This will heal with time and till that time around 3 to 4 weeks you need to avoid activities which leads to pain like separation of legs apart. Do ice fomentation and take tab Ibuprofen 400 mg thrice a day for initial 5 days. If not helping please consult orthopedic surgeon nearby your area.


Take Care
