When you pull a groin, it can be very painful. You can have a strain or sprain in your inner thigh muscles. Here are some simple stretches to get your groin sprain or strain feeling better.
The first stretch is a simple butterfly stretch. Sit on the ground, and put your feet together pulling them towards your body. If you need more of a stretch, you can place your elbows on your inner thighs, and apply gentle pressure downwards. Hold the stretches for 30 seconds, doing 3 of each set. Next, you are going to sit up on your knees in a tall kneeling position. Bring your good leg out in front of you at a 45-degree angle and the lean forward. If that is not enough stretch, you can lean out to the side over your knee. The last stretch is a standing lunge at a 45-degree angle. Point your toes in the direction you are going, and then lean your knee towards your toes.
