Hi everyone, first post on this site.
I managed to pickup this injury at a 10k in July 19, was in a lot of pain after the race but more my feet/ankles, took a week off then felt sharp pain in my groin area so i went to my GP, she advised me to take 4 weeks off any activity which i did....still there and i took another 2 weeks and it was still hanging around.
I'd already booked my first half marathon Bournemouth in October and i was able to do little training, managed to complete it in 2:20 and my quads were awful but no groin pain for a few days! Then it slowly started to appear again when i wasn't even exercising so i got myself referred for physio to try and get rid of it completely.
Been on physio now for 2 months and its no real different to when i started i have to say, its up and down different days but i still cant shake it, been doing the physio exercises 4-5 times a week and doing a couple of spin classes to stay fit (don't know if these are doing any harm) but my abductor is strengthening, when he told me to start doing leg press i could do 100kg now i can do 130kg.
Its never actually pain now its a constant numbness which is there almost all of the day, i cant lay on my right side when sleeping for too long or it aches more. My physio did tell me i could keep running once a week but i stopped that a month ago as it ached quite a bit more afterwards. The injury is so frustrating and its starting to make my temper short with people as all i want to do is go out and run and do Amsterdam Marathon this October.
Physio exercises ive been doing are leg press
squats with pilates ball between thighs
squeezing pilates ball between legs
resistance band with leg pulling across
leg on bed and pulling myself up from a side position with top half of leg and elbow
Long post i know, any advice would be fantastic, thanks guys
