Get the Best Hip and Adductor Muscle Treatment in Malaysia

Hip and thigh pain is common among athletes and nonathletes alike. To recover, you need targeted treatments that focus on fixing and repair of the damaged tissues. 

Physiotherapy and chiropractic treatment can be commenced as soon as possible when an acute adductor strain in the hip is present. Patients typically present with inner thigh pain or groin pain near the inferior pubic bone. The strained adductor muscle can be very tender upon palpation and stretching of the adductor muscle can reproduce the pain. The initial treatment approach is to reduce swelling and bleeding at the injured site. Therapeutic modalities that help to promote soft tissue healing can be used.

What is the best home care for strained hip and thighs muscles?

Active pain-free exercises and progressive strengthening exercises for the adductor muscle can be commenced with care after the first 48 hours of injury. Functional strengthening that involves more aggressive movements such as stationary bike, swimming pool running, jogging, or swimming can be part of the treatment in the later stage. Once the full passive and active range of motion of the injured hip returns to normal and with full strength, the athlete can return to progressive sport-specific training that involves a sudden and rapid change of direction.

Exercises such as running in a straight line or figure of eight and kicking should be avoided in the early stages of rehabilitation. Early return to these exercises without sufficient rehabilitation may predispose the athlete to recurrent adductor muscle strain. The treatment for adductor muscle strain should include management of the associated low back pain or pelvic imbalance at the same time to prevent chronic recurrent pelvic and hip injuries.

Fix and Repair Adductor Muscle Strain in Malaysian Athletes

What should you do for an Inner Thigh Pain?

Adductor muscle strains are prevalent among athletes whose running involved sudden changes of direction. The location of the pain is usually elementary to identify as the pain generally present at the belly of the adductor longus at the inner thigh or near the origin on the inferior ramus. The pain usually will start immediately after the injury. Physiotherapy and chiropractic care can help to increase the healing rate and reduce the time required to get back to sports. Stretching of the adductor muscle with passive hip abduction can cause pain. Resisted adduction will cause active contraction of the muscle can cause pain at the injured site too. For targeted hip and inner thigh pain, call our center at 03 2093 1000. 

What is the Best Home Remedy for Inner Thigh Pain?

PRICE regimen for acute injury should be initiated within 48 hours after the injury to reduce the swelling and bleeding at the injured site. PRICE regimen includes protection, relative rest, ice, compression, and elevation. Early stretching of the adductor muscle is not recommended for treating acute muscle strain as this may cause chronic tendinopathy of the adductors in the future. Progressive strengthening exercises such as pain-free range of motion (adduction and abduction) can be commenced after the first 48 hours if there is no other re-injury of the adductor muscle. Resisted adduction/flexion of the hip with a resistance tube or lightweight can be included if active abduction and adduction are not causing any pain. Stabilizing exercises such as pulleys with other leg and one leg squat is recommended to strengthen the core muscles and the adductor muscles at the same time.

Hip Pain and Groin Pain Treatment for Athletes in Malaysia

What caused your Groin Pain?

Sudden onset of hip pain is quite common in athletes who are involved in sports that require a lot of twisting, turning, and kicking. Athletes who are actively involved in sports such as football are at a higher risk of sudden hip and groin pain due to musculoskeletal injuries. The presenting symptoms may vary according to the structures that are damaged. Adductor muscle strain is one of the primary cause of inner thigh pain. Injury to the hip joint, such as a labral or chondral tear, can lead to severe hip and groin pain. Damage of the muscles and bursae associated with the hip joint can co-exist with a hip joint injury.

The location of the pain is the most useful sign to localize the area abnormality. Differential diagnosis can be made based on the site of the pain. The adductor muscle, iliopsoas, and rectus femoris are the more commonly strained muscles. A strain of the muscles mentioned above can cause pain at the inner thigh or groin region.

There are more severe causes of hip and groin pain that should not be missed by the health care practitioners. Intra-abdominal abnormality such as appendicitis or urinary tract abnormality can sometimes refer pain to the inner thigh and hip region. Rheumatological disorders such as ankylosing spondylitis can cause hip and groin pain as there is tightness in the hip flexors.

Posterior Thigh Pain and Hamsting Muscle Strains in Malaysia


muscle injury

What is the Best Treatment for a Pulled Hamstring Muscle in Malaysia?

A hamstring is a group of muscles located in the lower part of the buttock, and it extends all the way down into the back of the knee. It plays a primary role in extending the hip, bending the knee and rotating the leg. These actions are involved in several activities of daily living, such as running, walking, and jumping. Therefore, hamstring muscle strain is a prevalent injury among sprinters, hurdlers, long jumpers, footballers, Australian football, and field hockey players. These activities commonly involve a lot of high-speed running and forceful kicking. Hamstring strain can have a severe impact on the performance of the athlete, and absence days of training can be quite high too. Recurrent injury of the same muscle or associated muscles can happen as a result of inadequate post-injury physiotherapy and rehabilitation.

Biceps femoris of the hamstring muscle group is the most commonly injured muscle. The musculotendinous part of the biceps femoris is at a higher risk of injury, especially during a sprint. This injury usually presents as a non-contact injury. The hamstrings are likely to reach its point of failure during the terminal swing phase just before foot strike as this is the point of maximum eccentric contraction. During the terminal swing phase, the hamstrings are undergoing eccentric contraction to decelerate the swinging tibia while extending the knee to prepare for heel strike. During the initial stance phase, the hamstrings are now working concentrically to extend the hip joint.
