GROIN INJURIES

It can mean a lot of things

The groin area includes the lower abdominals, the hip, the adductors, the upper thigh, the inguinal region, the perineum and the inner thigh. It can be a strain, a sprain or a tear.

It can be described as tendonosis, tendonopathy, tendinitis, osteitis pubis, athletic pubalgia, sportman’s hernia, or perhaps simply groin pain.
