What is an adductor strain?

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.

What are the symptoms of an adductor strain?

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.
