Pulled groin

Hey guys and gals so I pulled my right groin coming out of the hole on one of my last reps in a 5x5 back squat workout. I immediately felt it so it wasn't something I noticed the next morning. This was about 2 weeks ago and I've rested it for the first several days and then started doing light cable adductor movements and did light leg extension once so far. While my ROM has gotten way better and pain subsided I feel like I've hit a wall in terms of recovery. What hurts most is extending my leg from lying down or seated. I'm definitely not an anatomy expert so in layman's terms I'd say I feel it especially in whatever runs down the middle left (inner) thigh, high up by my hips and extending about 1/3 the way down. Air squats are fine but as soon as I put an empty bar on my back it hurts while getting close to the bottom/coming up.

Without sounding too blunt........what should I do? I'm scheduling a PT session but that probably won't happen for another week due to my personal schedule.

Thank you for any responses.

Re: Pulled groin

Have your glutes been functioning properly leading up to this?

Re: Pulled groin

I pulled my groin last summer while being awesome. It was a good five months before it stopped hurting/bothering me. It nagged at me constantly. I did nothing different as a result of my injury-it got better. No issues now.

Re: Pulled groin

Interesting. I think I have OK glute activation...never really noticed it. I went into the workout super sore in the adductors from a 40/50 rep leg lever/4-ct flutterkick circuit done earlier in the week...been lifting for long enough to assume it wouldn't be an issue. Oops.
