Pain in and around your hip and groin
Pain in the hip and groin is often caused by a case of inflammation (tendinitis) of your tendons. If this is the case, you will be able to trigger the pain by touching or applying pressure to the sore muscle or tendon. Depending on the cause, the pain may be in your groin, on the inside or outside of your hip, as well as the back side of your hip.
Find the right program for you
Why does it hurt?
In most cases, the pain is caused by an inflamed tendon, and this may itself result from many different activities. Football, handball and other kinds of sports that involve quick changes of direction are common sinners. Other common causes are:
Acute injury: Muscles or tendons in the area around your groin and hip are damaged due to a sudden and overwhelming strain.
Excessive strain: Muscles and tendons are subjected to an unaccustomed strain over a longer period of time.
Degeneration: Muscles and tendons become weaker and stiffer with age, which naturally increases the risk of injury.
Pain and inflammation are your body’s way of telling you to ease the strain on your groin and/or hip. Two things are critical in treating your pain:
Reduce the frequency of the activities that led to your injury. Particularly the kind of sports or movements that require many and quick changes of direction.
Perform exercises that stimulate the muscles and tendons in the area around your hip and groin.
