    inner thigh muscle soreness
    An_247812 posted:
    Working at getting fit and developed a strain in the upper thigh (inner) muscle. Any idea on treatment.

    R.I.C.E always works. Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate.

    For a light strain, a cold pack and a few days off may be all it needs. Next time warm-up more thoroughly. Inner thigh muscles are mostly to move the leg from a side stretch to the centerline. You could have bothered this area with squats or lunges possibly., or some sort of fast motion after working with weights involving the same muscles.
