I just injured my groin area squatting. Not to wide just a bit outside shoulder width. As I was coming up I felt about a bit less than midway beween my manly bits and knee like a spasm or tearing sensation and I had to dump the bar. I can walk fine pain free, but I am aware of it when walking. Bodyweight squats feel uncomfortable most notibly as i ascend. What type of rehab usually works to get back to the swing of things with this injury. Also I pull sumo should I set that aside until much later into the recovery. Thanks.

For now forego the sumo pulling and try conventional to keep up some strength in the area.
I've had good success with this stuff on me by avoiding aggravating exercises, using loose briefs for regular squatting, and doing bw squats for high reps wuth a mini band doubled around my knees.
I do 25 rep sets, sometimes 20, for a total of a hundred reps a a day. This makes sure your hips are firing and helps take strain off the adductors.
I found one week or so things seem to ease off and I could squat again with my briefs. I like them loose, where you can slide them right on over shorts. Not so tight where you get a huge carry over. I felt like tight briefs seemed to pull on my injured area while a looser pair gave me the desired protection.
