Acute Groin Strain - What it is

What is Acute Groin Strain?

Injury can occur if the adductor muscle is overstretched or forcibly contracted, or a combination of both. An acute groin strain can occur during a rapid change in direction while running.

It is typically felt as a sudden pain or initial tearing sensation along the inside of the thigh, or in the groin region.

What should you not do?

In the first few days after the injury, you should avoid activities that increase blood flow to the muscles as these can prolong bleeding in the muscle. This can result in further pain and prolongs the recovery period. Excessive physical activity, heat rubs, massage, hot showers, stretching of the groin and alcohol consumption should also be avoided.

If you have severe pain, sudden onset of muscle weakness, or difficulty walking, we recommend seeking immediate medical attention for evaluation.
