Mike in Denver,
I've read one safe way to self assess a SH is no improvement in groin symptoms after 4-6 weeks of rest. Based on your post, it is likely you have a SH, though you need to visit a SH specialist in order for proper diagnosis.
As for fixing it w/ PT, I personally don't think it is possible based on both experience and some research of the injury itself. A SH involves muscle tears that don't heal themselves. My guess is a muscle sprain that began to cause SH related pains could be overcome, but a ripped muscle, I've been medically advised, can only be repaired surgically.
