1) You really need a sports physiotherapist, if you can afford one. Doctors don't usually have the specialised knowledge of how to rehabilitate an injury, which is a complex process with several phases.
2) I'm currently rehabilitating a chronic groin muscle strain using an excellent self-help book called "Treat Your Own Strains, Sprains and Bruises". The book is available from Spinal Publications Ltd, P.O.Box 93 Waikanae, New Zealand or in the U.S. from OPTP, PO Box 47009, Minneapolis, MN55447, USA , or so it says on the back cover. The edition I have was published 1994.
3) It's really important to either get very detailed professional advice, or a very good book to guide you. If you don't & try to "wing it", then you're likely to either re-injure yourself, or fail to properly stretch the damaged area, leaving you with a shortened range of movement and thus prone to injury again.
