Groin pain is a common complaint for many Australians. It is a complicated condition, generally caused by abnormal muscle forces, impacting the joint, tendons and muscles at the front of the pelvis.
Groin pain is usually caused by repetitive sports such as running or sports that require you to suddenly change directions such as netball and football.
Groin pain can present both gradually or suddenly. It can be a complex pain to diagnose, as pain can present in multiple locations throughout the area. Generally, if you are suffering from groin pain, you will feel pain in pubic bone at the front of the pelvis if firmly pressed or in the groin muscles when pressed.
The bad news is that ignoring it won’t help make the problem go away. The good news is that there are successful treatments for groin pain, and with physiotherapy intervention, the majority of people will make a full recovery.
If you think you are suffering from this condition, please get in contact with SportsCare Physiotherapy to start your recovery.
