That Niggling Groin! – part three

Hip and groin anatomyOnwards and upwards (or downwards as the case may be) for our series on groin and hip pain.

So why do groins take so long to improve sometimes?

Unfortunately athletes with groin pain often keep training or playing as it gradually gets worse.  They stop when the pain just stops them from continuing.

When the condition reaches this stage, rehabilitation and rest periods are lengthier than if the problem had been addressed earlier.

The key to getting on top of these is getting the classification right.  In order to do this, it takes thorough history-taking, and really good clinical testing.

Quite often adductor and iliopsoas-related pain go hand in hand.

The classification then dictates what the right rehabilitation is going to be.

Rehabilitation often includes quite specific exercises.  Modification of your training methods without provoking further pain is often critical to getting the best and quickest result.

 

If you suffer from groin or hip pain that isn’t improving, or you don’t know what you are dealing with, why not give Steph a call on 8356 1000 and have a no-obligation chat with her to find out if it is something that she can help with.
