Effective treatment for adductor strains

There are many causes of adductor strains

Causes of an adductor strain injury can be a variety of factors, such as participating in rigorous activities without proper warm-up, an imbalance between opposing muscle groups, or continuously using the same muscles or working on one side of your body while neglecting the other. It’s best to see a chiropractor or physiotherapist to evaluate your condition and develop a plan to treat it. In most cases, chiropractic treatment and/or physiotherapy in combination with massage therapy will bring relief. This combination helps heal tightness and soothe tender spots while strengthening the adductor muscles with specific stretching exercises.

An adductor strain is a common sports injury that involves an overstretching or tear of one of the adductor muscles of the inner thigh. The adductor muscles are integral for running and jumping activities, helping to move the leg inwards toward the center line of the body; when these muscles are strained, it can cause sudden sharp pain in the area. Many athletes experience this type of injury when changing direction quickly, stretching too far to reach a ball or object, or overworking in training. An adductor strain can be managed with rest and rehabilitation exercises provided by a chiropractor or physiotherapist specifically targeting the adductors. Additionally, icing and anti-inflammatories may help reduce symptoms and aid healing.

Symptoms for an adductor strain may include pain in the adductor muscle during activity, tenderness to the touch, tightness in the area of the strained muscle, difficulty walking or even moving one’s legs, and weakness in the injured leg. In some cases, swelling and bruising may be present as a result of a more severe strain. Adequate rest, chiropractic care and physiotherapy are recommended for recovery from an adductor strain. To prevent further injury to the area, it is important to avoid high-resistance activities and seek professional advice if there is any pain or discomfort.

Treating an adductor strain completely depends on the severity of the injury. Mild adductor strains may respond to rest, ice, compression, and gentle stretching. Moderate to severe strains, however, often require medical intervention and professional care from a physiotherapist or chiropractic or medical doctor. The process typically involves managing pain and swelling with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications or other special prescription drugs as well as strengthening exercises, therapeutic ultrasound treatments, massage therapy, and immobility if necessary. It is important to seek expert medical advice in order to determine the best course of treatment for an adductor strain.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
