Groin Pain / Strain Galway


The groin muscles are situated on the inner aspect of the thigh. They are responsible for moving the leg inwards and across the body (adduction) and stabilising the pelvis. During running (in particular changing direction) and kicking the groin muscles contract. If too much tension is placed onto the muscles during these actions some or all of the muscle fibres can tear resulting in pain and loss of function. The symptoms of a groin strain are a sharp pain, tightness or pulling feeing on the inside of the leg, limping due to pain and pain during running, jumping, changing direction and kicking. Physiotherapy for groin pain can range from ultrasound, taping, soft tissue massage, stretches, biomechanical correction, rehabilitation programme to improve strength, balance, flexibility and core stability.
