Adductor Muscles and Groin Strain: Understanding the Anatomy and Causes of Pain New York, NY
running sports injury with male triathlete runner

The adductor muscles are a group of muscles located in the inner thigh that are responsible for bringing the legs toward the midline of the body. These muscles are important for many activities, including walking, running, jumping and kicking. However, they are also prone to injury, especially in athletes who participate in sports that involve sudden changes of direction or repetitive kicking motions.

Core Surgical in New York City can perform adductor surgery to repair a strained brevis, longus or magnus muscle or tendon to relieve groin pain.

What is a Groin Strain?

One common injury that affects the adductor muscles is a groin strain. A groin strain is a tear or pull of the muscles that attach to the pelvis and run down the inner thigh. Depending on the severity of the injury, it can range from a mild strain to a complete tear. Groin strains are common in sports that require quick movements, such as soccer, basketball and hockey.

Symptoms of a groin strain may include pain and tenderness in the inner thigh, difficulty walking or running, and swelling or bruising in the groin area. If you experience these symptoms, it is important to see a specialist at Core Surgical in NYC to determine the severity of the injury and to receive appropriate treatment.

Treatment for a groin strain typically involves rest, ice, compression and elevation of the affected area. Anti-inflammatory medications may also be prescribed to reduce pain and swelling. Physical therapy may be recommended to help strengthen the adductor muscles and prevent future injuries. In severe cases where the adductor muscles or ligaments are severely damaged, surgery may be necessary to repair the torn muscle.

Could I Need Adductor Surgery?

Adductor surgery can repair strained adductor muscles or tendons. The type of surgery required will depend on the severity of the injury and the specific muscles or tendons affected. Your Core Surgical specialist may remove damaged tissue, reattach torn muscles or tendons or use grafts to replace damaged tissue. The surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and may require a hospital stay of several days. It can also be needed in conjunction with a hernia repair surgery.

Recovery time will vary depending on the extent of the injury and the type of surgery performed, but physical therapy is often recommended to help patients regain strength and mobility in the affected area.
