groin strain

groin pain of insidious onset induced by sports exercise, relieved by rest but rapidly recurrent during next period of sport; pain increases and occurs earlier in exercise as injury becomes chronic, to the point of constant dull ache with only gentle activity; symptoms can be induced by passive limb abduction and external rotation at hip joint; treated by rest, physical therapies and anti-inflammatory agents, and bespoke orthoses to address limb pathomechanics; prevented by pre-exercise stretching and resistance strength exercises to condition pelvis and lower limb
