Groin Strains

Groin Strains

A groin strain is an injury to one or more of the muscles that make up the groin region which is located on the inside of the leg. A groin strain can occur in a number of different ways such as direct impact trauma to the groin area and as a result of excessive loading of the muscle during activity but it is often hard to diagnose the route cause of the injury especially for minor strains as many people continue to exercise with a minor strain. Groin Strains will be classified in 3 grades depending on severity with grade 1 being no loss of function and grade 3 complete functional loss and a complete muscle tear.

Common Causes

Common sports that cause hamstring tears:

  • Football
  • Fell Running
  • Ice Hockey
