  • Groin injuries present a challanging task in diagnosis and treatment to the clinician. Many conditions exist or may co-exist.
  • It has been suggested the clinician shoulder first decide whether the patient has pain with bilateral resisted hip adduction (Sizer 2006). Results of this test will give you the following potential diagnosis:
    • Conditions WITH painful resistive hip adduction: adductor tendon injuries, rectus abdominus, obturator nerve, osteitis pubis, ossifying myositis, symphysitis, SIJ dysfunction
    • Conditions WITHOUT painful resistive hip adduction: urological, gynecological, vascular, lymphatic, herniation, hip labral, stress fracture, psoas tendopathy, psoas bursitis, nerve entrapment, incompetent abdominal wall, lumbar or thoracic spine
