A groin strain is an overstretch or tearing injury to the muscles of the inner thigh or front of the hip. Groin strains typically occur from overuse of the muscles or a sudden contraction of the muscles. Groin strains lead to pain that increases with walking, lifting the knee and/or moving leg away from or toward the body, tightness in the groin area and weakness in the involved leg.
The Physical Therapists at Apple Physical Therapy will design a personalized treatment plan specific to you and your injury that will include special strengthening exercises to your legs and core musculature. We will include manual therapy techniques such as massage and gentle stretching techniques to improve healing of the injured muscle and to restore normal motion. If necessary, your PT may elect to use modalities such as heat and/or ice to help reduce pain and ready the body for exercise.
