Adductor Muscle Injury
An adductor strain refers to an injury of the adductor tendons located near the groin. The adductor muscles are responsible for movement where the thigh is brought inwards towards the midline of the body. Adductor strains are caused by sudden contraction of the adductor muscles resulting in a sudden pulling sensation in the groin. They are typically associated with sports involving kicking, sprinting, skiing and/or jumping (like soccer and football).
