Groin Pain Treatment
Groin pain is one of the more difficult conditions to diagnose and treat due to the complexity of this part of the anatomy. The groin, the connection between the lower abdomen and upper thigh, is an intersection of nerves, bone, muscles and other tissues that surround the reproductive organs. To determine the right groin pain treatment, it is vital to obtain an accurate diagnosis. At Core Surgical in NYC, we have a team of groin pain specialists that understand this complex region and possible sources of pain.
It is estimated that one in four people will experience groin pain in their lifetime – this includes males and females. Athletes are more likely to have groin pain or a groin injury. Half of all professional athletes report a groin issue every season, and one in five has been pulled from playing due to a groin injury. Although groin pain and injuries are fairly common, it is also one of the most commonly misdiagnosed conditions. For ongoing groin pain, it is important to see a specialist that can pinpoint the cause and determine the best treatment to obtain pain relief.
Causes of Groin Pain
The possible cause of groin pain varies from a muscle/tendon strain or ligament sprain to various hernias and reproductive issues. Our groin pain specialists have extensive experience in this complex area. Men and women have specific gender-related conditions that can result in groin pain, while other causes can impact both genders. Some of the more common causes of groin pain include:
- Injury to muscles, tendons, ligaments and other soft tissues in the groin
- Inguinal or occult hernias
- Male reproductive conditions like prostatitis and orchitis
- Female reproductive conditions like endometriosis and uterine/ovarian cysts
- Hip impingement
- Pelvic floor dysfunction, psoas syndrome and other pelvic conditions
