|Subject: ||RE: hip/groin/glut pain|
This isn't a particularly easy injury to diagnose via LetsRun (not to criticize). But you have to give literally every detail possible to even come close to getting a HELPFUL suggestion as to what could be wrong.
You say that you developed pain AFTER an easy "run" and strides approximately "2 weeks ago". I put those two parts in quotes because if you developed it after one single training session, I would consider it to be a more acute injury vs. a chronic injury. Unless you had been having pain or discomfort (i.e. tightness, crampy, pinchy, achey) feeling in your hip/groin area for a few weeks or even months prior to this "adductor strain", then it's not likely you have a labral tear. I say this because to tear your labrum takes a good amount of force or repetitive stress ALONG with biomechanical issues (i.e. bone problem such as impingement and/or poor stride mechanics). You should have a much more gradual onset of discomfort (tightness/aching) that would progress into more painful symptoms (stabbing/pinching) as the injury progressed.
Did you feel any discomfort before you did the strides? Did you notice it while you were running or only after? And describe your hip and glute pain and groin pain in DETAIL. What part starts to hurt first? What exactly does it feel like? Have you tried to run on it? What does it feel like when you are running. What does it feel like when you are not running? And does it hurt during any other daily movements (i.e. sitting, standing, laying down, walking, lifting/carrying things, going up/down stairs). And if so, what does it feel like during those movements? Giving information like that will help a lot more than simply saying your groin and hip hurt.
