6 month groin strain - What can I do?
Losing the will to live now. After what was probably overuse and not warming up properly, my groin strain has been with me for 6 months. I had it before then, but it was a case of one football tournament too many... Some days I can't feel it, other days I feel it twinge if I jog for the train or something trivial like that. I have done everything I can think of.... My own physio for a few months, iced it as per instructions, exercises etc... I have been around various doctors and had an x-ray and MRI scan, both of which have come up with nothing! I have even had two cortizone injections but they have had no impact. None of them can work it out. Playing football is quite literally my life (well nearly, I do have a girlfriend...) and it depresses me to f*ck that I can't play it anymore. Does anyone know what i can do? I've pretty much run out of options and patience... :(

r.i.c.e rest Resting is important immediately after injury for two reasons. First, rest is vital to protect the injured muscle, tendon, ligament or other tissue from further injury. Second, your body needs to rest so it has the energy it needs to heal itself most effectively. Ice: Use ice bags, cold packs to provide cold to the injured area. Cold can provide short-term pain relief. It also limits swelling by reducing blood flow to the injured area. Keep in mind, though, that you should never leave ice on an injury for more than 15-20 minutes at a time. Longer exposure can damage your skin. The best rule is to apply cold compresses for 15 minutes And then leave them off for at least 20 minutes. Compression: Compression limits swelling, which slows down healing. Some people notice pain relief from compression as well. An easy way to compress the area of the injury is to wrap an ACE bandage over it. If you feel throbbing, or if the wrap just feels too tight, remove the bandage And re-wrap the area so the bandage is a little looser. Elevation: Elevating an injury reduces swelling. It's most effective when the injured area is raised above the level of the heart. For example, if you injure an ankle, try lying on your bed with your foot propped on one or two pillows. After a day or two of R.I.C.E., many sprains, strains or other injuries will begin to heal. But if your pain or swelling does not decrease after 48 hours, make an appointment to see your primary care physician or go to the emergency room, depending upon the severity of your symptoms. Once the healing process has begun, very light massage may improve the function of forming scar tissue, cut healing time and reduce the possibility of injury recurrence. Gentle stretching can be begun once all swelling has subsided. Try to work the entire range of motion of the injured joint or muscle, but be extremely careful not to force a stretch, or you risk re-injury to the area. Keep in mind that a stretch should never cause pain. Heat may be helpful once the injury moves out of the acute phase and swelling and bleeding has stopped. Moist heat will increase blood supply to the damaged area and promote healing. Finally, after the injury has healed, strengthening exercises can be begun. Start with easy weights and use good form I would recommend getting a splint to put on your thumb tap ur finger together with other, till better tap toe toe together with other I would recommend getting a splint to put on your thumb u can get from pharmacy for sunburn calamine lotion

You mentioned doctors, but have you tried physical therapy? I had a hip strain that was/is also 6 months, and physical therapy is FINALLY improving matters. I don't know how similar it is, but mine was a strained hip flexor. The therapist is treating it with a combination of heat (not ice), deep tissue massage, and stretches. Progress is still slow, but noticeable. In 3 weeks, I've made more progress than I did in 6 months.
