Osteopathic Treatment for Groin & Pelvic Pain
Groin strains tend to be part of the life of young, athletic sports people and occur as a result of stretching too for the ball in a game of football, rugby or racket sports. The same may be true of the older, active individual and may indicate a degree of arthritic change in the joint but, in general, if the problem has suddenly come on after any form of physical activity, it usually indicates the supporting muscles have become tight in an effort to protect the joint from further damage. Generally, careful applied work to the area will reduce the pain and allow you to return to normal activities.
Pelvic problems are often a result of a bad back, or may even cause a bad back. For mums, they can be as a result of a difficult pregnancy or labour. As a practice, we have considerable experience of treating these problems.
