Self-care for the client/patient during the acute stage of an adductor strain (groin pull) is RICE: rest, ice, compression, and elevation.
Once chronic, manual therapy for an adductor strain is geared toward decreasing muscle tightness, myofascial trigger points, and fascial adhesions.
During the acute phase of an adductor strain, active adduction range of motion and manual resistance to adduction will increase the client/patient’s pain.
The most common tight adductor symptom – also known as a groin pull – is pain in the medial thigh at the site of the strain.
An adductor strain, also known as a groin pull in lay terms, is a strain of the musculature that does adduction of the thigh at the hip joint.
