Pain in thigh / groin - should I stop skiing

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
It’s my last day of my skiing holiday and I have a burning pain in the middle of my thigh going towards my back. It hurts to straighten my leg and put pressure in the leg. Should I take some ibuprofen and ski today or hang up my skis and rest my leg?

Or maybe the real question is -,am I taking a big risk by ignoring the pain and still skiing today. The suns going to be out and the snow is amazing. Thanks!

Edit: firther research from Dr. Google seems to hint at groin strain

"Sun is out" - smother all painful areas in Deep Heat.
Take easy run on "amazing snow" towards nearest bar/cafe. Lie in sun with cocktail/ glass of wine/beer/ hot chocolate and smother face in Factor 50.
Undertake another easy run, take uplift as required and repeat.
Enjoy.
Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Advice taken! So glad I skied. Pain got better with movement and I ended up having one of my best ski days ever. Even went down my first red. Kept shaking my head at the thought I nearly missed all of this. So yes for anyone else reading this wondering if they should ski or not because of pain somewhere - try a couple of runs before deciding. Now on the bus to the airport with a big smile on my face. What a great week its been

As a Sports Therapist generally if you've not had a big crash where something goes twang or snap then you will normally get away with it! If you don't your body will soon tell you otherwise. Avoid the 'fear of making it worse' mentality - as ironically this will make it worse! Get out there, enjoy yourself and leave it to your local caring sharing Sports Therapist to pick up the pieces when you get back.
