Groin strains

Strains affect every player but there are ways of reducing the risk.

Groin strains can affect every player, especially those inclined to pivot and change direction quickly. The start of the season is prime time for the problem as a lack of conditioning increases susceptibility to the injury, which usually occurs when the adductor muscle is stretched beyond its limits. The term 'groin strain' is a bit of a misnomer, as the stabbing pain that results is a sign of muscle fibres being torn, completely at worst.
