Even when you're injured and in pain you need to keep moving to break-up scar tissue that's forming in your tendons and ligaments in you groin. Regular movement can increase healthy range of motion (ROM) of your hip and groin, guaranteeing you a speedier recovery process and return to regular activities. Moving when you're injured is hard. Since moving while injured can be painful most people think it's better to stop moving, rest their leg and hope that their groin injury will heal all on its' own. Even though rest is important to recovery, too much rest during the recovery process will increase the amount of scar tissue in you groin muscles .
I'll use the right leg for our example, as illustrated in the picture [on page 48]. The patient is supine, with the right leg in the same 90-90 position I described above. I am sitting on the patient's right side, with my right shoulder against their posterior thigh. I use both of my hands to grasp firmly around the whole of the upper thigh. My left hand will be the main hand, with the heel of my left hand pushing against the greater trochanter. I pre-tension the area by both lifting the whole thigh superior and taking it into internal rotation to the feather edge of the barrier. I then do a quick thrust into further internal rotation. I really don't use much fine-tuning of three dimensions here; it's a pure thrust into internal rotation.
I am in the uk but had a follow up with my consultant at 12 pick anything up then as didnt have this pain as i have now, and was doing really the same as you quite swollen at top of thigh and cant sleep on operated side as too was lifting my leg fine until 2 weeks ago and cannot pinpoint anything i have done except i am standing all day on my feet now i am back to frustrated now as i am a terrible patient for going to see my gp but if there is no improvement soon i will follow it me posted Gillee how you get on on the 5th x
