    I recently started playing tennis again following a layoff of about two months.

    On resumption yesterday I had no physical side effects apart from a stomach strain on my left side ( I am right handed) which I attribute to serving following not having served for two months.

    I only experience pain when I serve – there is no residual pain.

    I would appreciate someone answering the following queries from anyone who has had a similar experience:

    How long is the pain/strain likely to last.
    Is there any treatment I can administer.
    Is it ok to hit groundies with the strain if there is no pain.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've strained my left oblique serving before. Fortunately, it only took a week for it to heal.

    Thanks Mikeler - did the srain heal on its own without any medication type assistance?

    There is no medication for this purpose. Physicians describe the treatment as "tincture of time."
