Groin injury rehab?

Yesterday I was playing some indoor soccer and another player collided with me during a clear from the corner. It twisted me around and I didn't feel any pain right away, I felt as if I got really stretched out in my right groin area. A couple minutes later I went to handle the ball with the outside of my right foot and noticed I had something wrong. I have had groin injuries before in wrestling and always just played through the pain so to speak. So my question is:

As far as CF what type of rehab should I do? Wrap it? Ice it. Take it easy. I really don't want to take any days off other than posted on the main site. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Groin injury rehab?

Depends how bad it is.

If there's no swelling then heat, lots of massage, some stretching.

Light activity to get the blood flowing...

Re: Groin injury rehab?

I did stretch it out good a couple times during the day because I really wanted to do the "Fight Gone Bad" WOD. Well the stretching paid off only a little sore in the groin apparently I just needed some sleep and stretching. Groin injuries scare the crap out of me. They have been so bad in high school I could barely walk at times. I appreciate the advice.

Re: Groin injury rehab?

glad to hear its better if it happens again and is v sore ice ice ice combined with v gently stretching aftr bout 2 days when pain limp gone start strengthng wit theraband then move on to cables also start doing body weight squats as early as possible without pain to stretch out muscle again also you may need to strengthen lower abdominals something else is which is important n quick healing is how u lie during night if you lie on that side u will aggravate same with shoulder so lie on other side with pillow between knees will keep pull off the groin or else lie on back wit pillow behind knees to keep muscle in shortened position n u wont wake up as sore.
