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.
