Groin injuries most often occur in the attempt to move fast. Sports that involve sprinting like football, soccer, and ice hockey, groin injuries can take place due to a lack of warming up. The muscles of the groin are known as the adductors of the leg which are strained (pulled) causing discomfort and pain in the area. Initially (first 2-3 days), treatment includes Protection, Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation (PRICE) which helps reduce the inflammation that has occurred and allow some healing to take place. After the initial period is over, more active treatments are usually required if the groin has not begun to feel better. Active Release Techniques® (ART®) has proven to be an effective method of treating the muscles strained in the groin injury.
