Adductor tendinopathy

What is an adductor tendinopathy?

The adductor muscles are a group of muscles which attach from the pelvic to the knee. There are 5 muscles within this group. A tendinopathy is described as chronic overuse of the tendons and the soft tissue around the tendons.

Adductor tendinopathy is over use of the adductor muscles on the inner thigh or groin region.  It is different to an acute adductor injury/strain.

Further information about both of these conditions and how to improve symptoms can be found below.

When to seek advice

If you have severe pain affecting your sleep and daily activities, if you have had a serious injury or you have symptoms that have not improved with self-management, you should contact your GP practice. If you have a red, hot swollen joint please ring 111
