Five ideas to reduce groin pain
Richard Carter, UK Chartered Physiotherapist suggests that recreation athletes
1. Raise body temperature and heart rate during a 10 minute warm up period.
2. Stretch the groin area using static stretches - holding each for at least
3. Strengthen the groin area by performing controlled lunges, side steps
4. Perform quick actions that replicate your sport - short sprints, quick
jumps, turns etc.
5. Remember to cool down after exercise or sport.Note: Remember - If you
feel any hint of discomfort within the groin area stop the activity you're
performing. Continuing may result in an injury which could take weeks or
months to resolve.
