All good things come to an end. I find that most good players have a hard time accepting the end. It's tough giving in to the eneveltible.

Here are some symptoms of a groin pull:

Pain and tenderness in the groin and the inside of the thigh
Pain when you bring your legs together
Pain when you raise your knee
A popping or snapping feeling during the injury, followed by severe pain
Groin pulls are often divided into three degrees of severity:

1st degree: Pain, but little loss of strength or movement
2nd degree: Pain and some tissue damage
3rd degree: Pain, loss of function, and a complete tear of the muscle
To diagnose a groin pull, your doctor will give you a thorough physical exam. Tests like X-rays and MRIs (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) may be needed to rule out other problems.

What's the Treatment for a Groin Pull?

Happily, a groin pull will usually heal on its own. You just need to give it some time and rest. To speed the healing, you can:

Ice the inside of your thigh to reduce pain and swelling. Experts recommend doing it for 20-30 minutes every three to four hours for two to three days, or until the pain is gone.
Compress your thigh using an elastic bandage or tape.
Take anti-inflammatory painkillers. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), like Advil, Aleve, or Motrin, will help with pain and swelling. However, these drugs can have side effects; they should be used only occasionally, unless your doctor specifically says otherwise.
Practice stretching and strengthening exercises if your doctor recommends them.
Most of the time, these conservative treatments will do the trick. But not always. If these techniques still haven't helped after six months, you may want to think about surgery. While surgery may give you relief, it's a last resort. Not everyone can return to their previous level of activity afterward.

So, talk over the pros and cons of surgery with your doctor. You should also consider getting a second opinion.

When a Groin Pull Feel Better?

Everyone wants to know how quickly they can get back in the game after a groin pull -- and how soon the pain will go away. But there's no easy answer. Recovery time depends on how serious your groin pull is. It may take four to six weeks, but that's just a rough estimate. People heal at different rates.

Pulled groins happen at Rick's all the time..generally all that is needed is 10 minutes to gather them selves then they walk out just fine.
