What are Groin Injuries?

A groin pull or strain results from muscles being stretched beyond their capacity or subjected to a sudden, forceful contraction. Athletes, especially those engaged in high-impact sports, find themselves at a higher risk.

The spectrum of groin pain varies, presenting either as a sharp sting or a lingering ache, and its intensity can fluctuate with different movements. Understanding the nature of these injuries is crucial, as they can range from simple muscle strains to more complex conditions like hernias.

Different Types of Groin Injuries

Groin pain in athletes is often categorised as either primary or secondary.

Primary Groin Pain

Primary groin pain arises directly from an injury or a medical condition, and it's not linked to any previous surgery. This type of pain is most commonly experienced as a groin strain, which is a pull in the muscles of the groin area. It's something we frequently see in sports that involve a lot of sudden changes in direction, kicking, pivoting, or sprinting. Sports like soccer, hockey, football, basketball, figure skating, and tennis are particularly known for this risk. However, it's worth noting that groin strains can occur in other scenarios as well, not just in these sports.


Secondary Groin Pain

Then there's secondary groin pain, which is a bit different. This type of pain develops as a complication of a surgical procedure. It's not as straightforward as a muscle strain but can be equally concerning.
