Adductor ‘Groin’ Strain

An adductor groin strain involves damage to the muscles, tendons and connective tissues of the inner thigh.

They are often caused by over stretching, or sudden ‘ballistic’ movements such as kicking or jumping.

Damage generally occurs at the point where the muscles insert onto the bone at the front of the pelvis.


The following symptoms are associated with an adductor groin strain:

  • Acute pain at the top of the leg between the inner thigh and hip joint.
  • Swelling, redness and heat around the affected area.
  • Pain when attempting to stand, weight bare or walk.
  • Pain which is worse when squeezing the knees together.


Groin strains in most cases are not serious. However, without treatment recovery times are long and the risk of re-injury is high.
