PowerTalk : How to Approach Groin Pain in Runners

Direct aanmelden



There are multiple causes of groin pain in runners including musculoskeletal causes (hip pathologies such as OA, FAI Syndrome, adductor pathologies, osteitis pubis) and non- musculoskeletal causes (inguinal hernia, genito-urinary disease, etc). Due to the complex anatomy and multiple referral patterns from various sources, identification of source of symptoms can be very challenging for the therapist.

In this PowerTalk, a systematic and evidence-based approach will be discussed in approaching this complex region, including early identification of red flag pathologies such as stress fractures and malignancy. There will be detailed discussion on MSK pathologies including osteitis pubis, adductor-related groin pain and how to differentiate these from other causes such as FAI syndrome and sports hernia. An overview of management strategies of osteitis pubis and adductor related groin pain will be discussed along with progression of rehabilitation and return to running.
