The ‘big three’ when considering ongoing chronic groin pain are:
- adductor tendinopathy (disease of the tendon, either inflammation or damage to a tendon)
- osteitis pubis (injury to the cartilaginous joint of the pubic symphysis), and
- inguinal (sportsman’s) hernia

The examination needs to focus on the groin, hip & sacroiliac areas. I’ll teach you the best way to improve strength and inhibition of the adductor muscles.
You’ll need to learn proper stretches and strength training .
