Thigh and Groin Pain
Thigh pain is caused by muscle strain which are common in explosive sports such as sprinting, involving especially the hamstring muscles. Other causes of pain are stress fracture, sciatica or compartment syndromes. The most common cause of groin pain is strain of the adductor muscles of the leg at the tendon and muscle junctions. Groin strains are common in soccer and when injured it is particularly important that you warm up with a fast walk before you start with exercise. Your physiotherapist will help you achieve a proper rehabilitation of your injury ensuring the exercises are performed with good technique.
