Dear MendMeShop,

Paul, The things I ordered from you seem to help and I am glad to have them. It has been really hot weather here so I don't use it as often as I should but it has relaxed the shoulder and I have a lot more movement. Thanks for your help, you speak the truth. I am telling others of your products.

Progression of a Groin Pull

This can be classified into 3 grades of groin pull or strain severity:

Groin injuries can occur in any sport.

Minor - Grade 1 Groin Pulls involve stretching of your groin muscles which results in slightly pulled muscles or very small tears in your muscles. You will generally feel mild cramping which will be a little tender or uncomfortable, but will involve no swelling or no loss of strength.

Moderate - Grade 2 Groin Pulls are more painful and involve a partial tearing of the groin fibers in your muscle, tendon, or at the tendon attachment to your bone. You will generally experience some pain, along with swelling, decreased range of motion and strength, as well as difficulty walking or running. Your groin muscles will often be painful when you touch them.

How to Order

Severe - Grade 3 Groin Pulls involve a complete tear (rupture) of your groin muscle fibers generally at your muscle/tendon and bone attachment; it is very painful and less frequent than the others. You will tend to experience a burning or stabbing pain, a lot of swelling and minimal strength, which may prevent you from walking without assistance or make it impossible for you to run. Bruising in the injured area is common a few days after the accident. This type of pull or strain may require a surgical repair.

Should you seek medical attention?

Seek medical attention to have a correct diagnoises.

This is up to your discretion; however any continued discomfort in your groin or pelvis area should be investigated. If you continue to experience the groin pull symptoms and have tried the suggested conservative treatments, it is recommended that you seek professional medical attention. If you experience any of the symptoms noted below it is recommended that you seek immediate attention:

  • Severe pain and tenderness
  • Problems or swelling in or around the genitalia (penis, scrotum, testicles).
  • A cut, lump or bulge or bleeding in your groin area.
  • Major hip/thigh movement problems causing a severe limp and/or "popping noises"
  • Urinary problem.
  • A groin rash.
  • Postoperative problems after a groin operation.
  • Exposure to an STD.
  • Groin pain has not improved after 1 week, where symptoms are more severe or frequent.
  • Signs of shock (lightheadedness, restlessness, shallow breathing, sweating, weakness, nausea) or a severe fever.

Dear MendMeShop,

MendMe products are the Cadillac of at-home treatment options. They are robustly constructed to provide superior heat or cold contact to the injured area and the fit is incredibly precise and adaptable. My husband and I use them repeatedly as typical ageing athletes with lots of old injuries. I have loaned them to friends on my paddle tennis team and everyone raves. Yes, they cost a bit more but save untold thousands in visits to chiropractors, physical therapists and doctors. We are among the sites biggest fans.
