Groin Pain

Groin pain has many causes including strains, swollen glands or a hernia – a condition in which an internal organ or piece of tissue protrudes through the muscles of the abdomen wall.


Groin pain is commonly the result of a muscle strain in the inner thigh – usually sport or work-related – and is often accompanied by swelling and bruising. Hernias are usually brought about by strenuous activity or heavy lifting, resulting in a painful bulge under the skin in the abdomen or groin.

Recommended treatment

 Treatment can include one or more of the following:

  •  Rest
  • Ice therapy
  • Compression and elevation
  • Stretching exercises
  • Physiotherapy
  • Ultrasound
  • Taping the groin area
  • Sports massage
  • Surgery – if the muscle has torn completely
  • A structured rehabilitation programme
