groin pain

groin pain

is most common in dynamic sports where quick turns are made, such as football, martial arts and skiing. The cause can be difficult to identify. Sporting causes include strains of the muscles in the area (e.g. the adductors, gluteal muscles, iliopsoas), bursitis, osteitis pubis and hernias. Abduction of the leg against resistance is restricted by pain. Because there are more serious causes of groin pain, a full clinical examination must be carried out if the pain is persistent. Treatment can be difficult and requires a formal rehabilitation programme to prevent a chronic condition. See also groin strain.
