      Hello Maureen I’m afraid we can’t diagnose over the internet as there is too much scope for error. In this case, the groin and back pain could be as likely due to an infection as it might be tissue strain, so you’ll need to see your doctor.

      Hello John That’s no bad thing insofar as the pain isnt permanent. I’d recommend being careful with your posture while lifting or carrying and consider taking some Glucosamine if you’ve had this work for a few years to prevent or delay any wear and tear in the spine.
