Conservative Treatments for Gilmore's Groin

RICE

This philosophy is used to decrease inflammation and relieve pain for chronic or acute Gilmore's Groin within the first 48 hours of a flare-up.

  • Rest and limit your activity. Use crutches or walking supports to help alleviate pressure if required.
  • Ice your groin and abdominal area 2-3 times/day for approximately 15 - 20 minutes at a time to help reduce blood flow and fluid build up. Gel packs are a better option than frozen peas if possible, as they mold to your body shape and are reusable (do not apply ice/gel packs directly on your skin, instead wrap cold compress in a wrap or cloth). Utilizing 2 gel packs with a wrap will allow you to cover your entire groin, pelvic and thigh area at one time.
  • Compress the area if possible by adding light pressure to minimize swelling (make sure the compress is snug, but not too tight as it could cause numbness, tingling or more pain). Neoprene groin strain braces that wrap around your groin, hip flexor and adductor muscles are very useful.
  • Elevate your leg above chest level to relieve the pressure from swelling and allow fluid to drain from your injured area. Gentle massage around the groin and pelvis area will also help to prevent stiffness.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound is a great therapeutic option to decrease inflammation, pain and soft tissue (muscle, tendon, ligament, nerve and connective tissue) damage experienced with inner thigh (adductor) and hip flexor pain that may be associated with Gilmore's Groin. This can be received using a portable, home ultrasound device (self-administered) or by seeing a physiotherapist. The treatment is easy, painless, safe, and generally requires between 5 - 10 minutes, 3 times a day. It is based on a form of deep tissue therapy, which is generated through high frequency sound waves (that we can not hear). These waves send vibrations deep into your body and raise the temperature of your soft tissue. The waves are delivered through a hand held transducer and medicinal conductive gel that are used together in a slow, circular motion on your skin over the injured area. You may experience a slight tingling or warm sensation during the process partly due to phonophoresis - a secondary enhancing, therapeutic effect of ultrasound. Do not use ultrasound over the genital areas and please seek the approval of your physician before using ultrasound!

Success

Ultrasound therapy increases collagen and tissue elasticity, which in turn promotes blood flow (circulation) and brings oxygen and nutrients to your injured area. This cleans your tissue by getting rid of cell waste products and helps your injury to heal. If not treated properly injured tissue can heal with a weakened state, which can lead to scar tissue or calcification. If used on an ongoing basis, ultrasound will help to increase your range of motion by breaking down any scar tissue that may form in your upper thigh muscles and hip flexors. Ultrasound waves penetrate deep into your tissues, repair and relax your muscles and other tissues, decrease chronic inflammation and pain, and accelerate your recovery rate, so you can return to your daily activities as soon as possible.

BFST™ - Using Your Body's Natural Healing System

Inferno Wrap providing superior blood flow stimulation.

Your body can heal itself! In fact, your body starts healing itself the moment you are injured and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen. Your blood is the transport mechanism for everything that is good inside you. It carries oxygen, nutrients, water and antibodies. Proper blood flow is essential to healing. Unfortunately, when you injure your body you stop moving and the swelling sets in. That means your vital blood flow can be reduced to a trickle! If you want to heal quickly, you need to keep your blood moving and that's where Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™, or BFST™, comes in.

Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ promotes the flow of blood through the injured area without the need to exercise your already damaged tissue. You can really feel it work. Within moments of applying an Inferno Wrap™ you can feel the healing sensation and the increase in blood flow. During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, your injured area will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest. It's a soothing sensation and extremely effective. With BFST™ your injury is constantly being fed with healing, nutritious, oxygen and energy filled blood. This is exactly what your body needs to heal.


How An Inferno Wrap™ Works

Our Cold Compression Wraps are recommended as the best by the Mayo Clinic, and countless medical professionals. That's why we sell them, because they are the best. We have noticed over time that our customers are so fond of our cold wraps that they are frequently coming back and ordering a second one - this way they can cool one while wearing the other. The wraps are becoming very popular with baseball and soccer trainers, and the wraps can be conveniently stored in a cooler for quick application on the field when needed.

xyliss ultrasound

Ultrasound therapy is also a helpful tool for pain prevention of groin injuries, and having a portable ultrasound device at home can be a powerful and convenient treatment tool. If you have symptoms or are recovering from a groin injury, using ultrasound on a regular basis before your activity or throughout the day will help relax your muscles, tendons and tissues, diminish pain and inflammation, soften scar tissue and contribute greatly to the healing of your injury.

If you suffer from mild inflammation or pain after certain activities or movements use ultrasound therapy when you complete the activity and then rest and elevate your area of injury. Limit the application of ultrasound to a couple of treatments per day (the manual will recommend treatment frequency depending upon the injury). In between ultrasound treatments, maximize your pain relief and injury recovery by using an Inferno™ Personal Therapy System. Proven Performance, Proven Relief - only found at MendMeShop.com. If you have been given a treatment plan by your health professional, make sure you adhere to it to ensure pain free living. In general, people who are committed to their therapies and exercises will have the best medical outcomes.

Dear MendMeShop,

I had a very painful torn plantar fascia where it inserts into the heal. Basically I twisted my foot coming down the steps and then had to downsize from a larger house to a smaller house. I was on my feet everyday after work for a month to move which made the tear worse. Then I got misdiagnosed by my doctor who ordered no testing.. I was in agony until I found the mend me shop website. I ordered the plantar inferno wrap and have used it religiously every morning and evening and noticed a gradual improvement immediately. It also feels nice and toasty on my foot. I did finally go to the podiatrist and was in a CAM Boot for 10 weeks, along with my inferno wrap use. I know that the inferno wrap works because I felt no improvement until I started using it. I highly recommend this product for anyone suffering from plantar fascia pain or injury. I would say I am about 80% healed and continue to use this great product--and my physical therapist approves and has encouraged me to continue to use the product.
