No real suggestions i'm afraid other than ice the area to reduce swelling.

About 18months ago i managed to get a 'double' groin strain which, both adductor muscles at the same time. All i could do was let it heal, and regularly sit in a bath of cold water. A few gentle stretches helped ease it slightly then very slow progress back to fitness. Listen to your body.

It took me 5 months to sort mine out. If it hurts I would leave it. I bought a groin support from physio supplies and the problem pretty much disappeared in this area. Mine was due to poor biomechanics in the right leg.
