I strained my groin while running. I can do all regular day to day activities, but can't run. It's been two months now. Any suggestion how to improve things?

Aside from a visit to your dr. for assessment, utilize R.I.C.E.S: Rest, Ice Compression, Elevation, Support. Try to avoid heat for first 72 hours or so. I would refrain from running.

Hello and thank you for posting!

Here is some information that I found on groin pulls and possible treatments . As the previous poster stated, ice is a good option, as well as a compression bandage or tape, and slowing introducing stretching and strengthening exercises. Be sure that you don't rush things, healing takes time. If you are in a lot of pain, or it lasts longer than six months, you should see your doctor to assess what next steps might be right for you.

Best wishes,
Atti
