Treating a groin disruption can be challenging as there are no tests or x-rays that will truly prove its diagnosis. As a result, it is often misdiagnosed and treated initially as a pull or strain, which involves a conservative treatment approach. Often a groin disruption will not heal on its own, even with conservative treatments. Therefore, surgery is often used to fix the injury and permit you to return to your daily routine and sports activities. Your doctor will consider your activity level, your age, the location and severity of your groin pain, as well as how long you have had it, the symptoms you experience and any other associated groin injuries when determining the best treatment for you.
Rest is vital for a groin disruption to heal, if you continue to energetically participate in activities that cause pain, the discomfort and degree of damage can worsen and last for a longer period of time. You will often notice groin improvement after 3-4 weeks of conservative treatments (before and/or after surgery). The more diligent you are with your treatment and rehabilitation, the faster you will see successful results.
