    How long does a pulled groin take to heal?

    I pulled my groin muscle either doing cardio or leg presses about a week and a half ago, I havent done any running or leg work in about a week and it still hurts. How long does this type of injury take to heal? I start training in MMA next Friday and I want to be healed by then. Is there anything I can do to speed up the healing process or excercises to help strengthen the muscle or something?

    I would say for now just to ice it and have lots of rest. Skip MMA if you have to; healing your injury should be priority number one. Sorry man.

    Depends on the severity of the pull and where it is. The groin area covers quite a bit of area.
    My pull took about 2 months to get to a point where sudden direction changes didn't send a shooting pain to my testicles and up my stomach. It's been about 9 months since the pull and I feel a twinge every now and again. From what the doctor told me and what I've read, once you have experience a decent pull it never really heals 100%.
    A good stretch routine is a ncie start to prevention. Unfortunately there is no magic pill.But there is definately life after a groin pull !

    Groin pulls can take a long time to recover as the other poster said. Make sure you ice it when you get a chance.

    Warm bath in morning, ice bath at night.

    I always stretch my groin pulls so they stay loose. Seems to work as I've had many of them.

    Rest, do not run, train or w/e. They WILL become nagging injuries if not rested right now.
    A lot of people have been looking at too many competition condition bodybuilding photos and have a distorted sense of what "fat" is. - SideFX
