If you have pulled your groin or thighs, place an ice pack on the area that hurts most. Keep doing this throughout the day to ease the pain and reduce inflammation. Aim to apply the ice for 10-20 minutes and leave about 45 minutes in between applications.
Sprains are typically less serious, and you can usually recover quite quickly from them. That being said, make sure you speed up the healing process by using ice packs and keeping the affected body part elevated. Avoid returning to your sport too soon. And make sure you allow adequate time for your sprain to fully heal.
