Groin Injury

Related Content

If muscles and tendons are tight, they're more prone to injury, resulting in injuries to the groin, among other things. If you're feeling pain, tenderness, stiffness, popping and/or weakness in the groin area, you may have a groin injury.

The physicians of Jefferson's Sports Medicine Center will diagnose your condition and help minimize your pain by introducing stretching and strengthening exercises or recommending hot and cold compresses, rest or pain-relief medication.

Our Center physicians, trainers and therapists have extensive experience in adolescent and adult, amateur and professional sports medicine and treat public and private school athletes and numerous collegiate and professional sports teams, including the Philadelphia Eagles, Phillies, Flyers and Sixers; the U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team; the Pennsylvania Ballet; and numerous visiting professional athletes and performers.

In fact, we evaluate more than 40,000 athletes and perform more than 3,000 reconstructive surgeries related to athletic injuries annually.
