Pelvic, abdominal and groin pain

David Galea (MSc, MCSP, Senior Physiotherapist)  

INTRODUCTION

The term 'groin pain' is often used to describe a multitude of pelvic and groin injuries and covers a wide variety of injury scenarios (see Table 1). The complex anatomy, the possibility of co-existing injuries, and the various sources of origin, present the clinician with an immense challenge.

THE THORACIC SPINE, THE LUMBAR SPINE, THE SACROILIAC JOINT (PELVIS), THE HIP JOINT AND THE ABDOMINAL VISCERA SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS A POSSIBLE SOURCE OF GROIN PAIN.
