Groin strain

The inner thigh consists of five main muscles that run from your pelvis to your thigh bone. They help to move your leg closer to the center of your body. Placing too much stress on these muscles can result in a small tear in the muscle tissue. This will heal with time and the information in this booklet will provide more information to help with your recovery.

A groin strain results from putting too much stress on muscles in your inner thigh. If these muscles are tensed too forcefully or too suddenly, they can get over-stretched and a tear in the muscle occurs.
