Groin rehab & its need:
Sports or leisure activities (such as gymnastics, basketball, triathlon, wrestling, and football), work-related activities, and motor vehicle accidents are the most prevalent causes of groin injuries. It happens when the muscle-tendon unit becomes inflamed as a result of an injury. This often presents as discomfort in the adductor area during resistance testing or probing of the adductor tendons. Groin rehab is required to heal faster and return to sports or employment as soon as possible.
Cause of groin strain:
Athletes who participate in sports that require repetitive twisting, turning, running, and kicking, such as football and hokey, are prone to groin injuries.
Your groin discomfort may be caused by an injury to another region of your body, such as torn muscles, ligaments, or tendons, rather than an injury to the groin.
Groin strain (an injury or tear to any of the inner muscles of the thigh), avulsion fracture (when the tendon that connects muscles to the pubic bone is torn), stress fracture of the femoral neck, osteitis pubis (chronic inflammation at the pubic symphysis joint), hip labral tear, and other groin-related injuries
Clinical presentation of Groin Strain:
- groin ache that is excruciating,
- Inner thigh tenderness and soreness along the tendon or at the insertion,
- Adduction aggravates the discomfort,
- Localized soreness due to bleeding,
- difficulty contracting the hip abductors.
Groin Rehab includes:
- Changes to the training load.
- Avoid NSAIDs for the first 48 hours and instead employ cryotherapy and compression bandaging (using a short stretch bandage that causes high dynamic pressure). Early movement may be beneficial, but avoid stretching and massage over the next 96 hours.
- A physiotherapist at Elite Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Centre utilizes a customized mobility training program after 48 hours.
- Start with isometric, then concentric, and finally eccentric hip muscle strengthening exercises. Hip adductor and external rotator strength are examples of strengthening exercises.
- Eccentric abdominal exercise in both uniplanar and multiplanar planes.
- Hip joint mobilization- hip mobilization is a one-of-a-kind treatment for increasing joint ROM. Our highly skilled physiotherapists have extensive expertise with this technique and have used it effectively for many years.
- Mobilization of the lower spine.
- Hip muscle flexibility training consists of stretching the hip flexors, external rotators, and gluteal muscles.
- Training for neuromuscular control.
- Physiotherapists do bilateral and unilateral dynamic force reduction training (landing mechanism).
- Re-education of posture.
- Dry needling, muscle release, Myofascial release, and soft tissue mobilization are examples of manual therapy.
- The home workout regimen consists of lateral lunges (3×12 on each side), single-leg barbell high step-ups, bridging, sumo squat with weight, theraband movements, dead bugs, reverse planks, and Copenhagen planks.
