Adductors (pain) - Definition

March 2017


Definition


Pain in the adductors, the term commonly assigned to the adductor muscles in the thigh, is generally caused either by tendonitis, which is an inflammation of the tendons, or by a pulled groin, an irritation of the pubic joint, where the thigh's adductor muscles are attached. These problems are very frequent among athletes, especially those in track and field and hurdles, soccer, dance, or tennis. Anti-inflammatory drugs and a temporary cessation of the sport generally suffice in getting rid of the pain.
