Are you suffering from groin pain? Your doctor of chiropractic may be able to help!! Pain in the groin can be a symptom of a wide range of problems such as “issues with the reproductive organs, the renal/urinary system, the lymph glands, a pelvic floor disorder, a hip joint condition, or possible a lumbar disk herniation”.

For a patient suffering with groin pain, your doctor of chiropractic will likely begin by taking the patient’s history as well as conducting a detailed examination. The detailed examination is important to rule out any health issues that may be better suited for the patient’s medical physician to take over care of. Problems addressed by the doctor of chiropractic include: potential dysfunction in the pelvis, hip, and low back.

“Chiropractic care for these conditions will include manual therapies to restore joint motion, specific exercises to strengthen/stretch the affected ligaments and muscles, and recommendations to address inflammation, such as supplements/vitamins or ice/heat instruction”.

One of the major causes of groin pain can stem from a pelvic floor disorder (PFD). “PFD is a common condition that describes the inability to correctly relax and coordinate the pelvic floor muscles”. Pelvic floor disorder can lead to problems such as difficulties with urination or defecation, among over pelvic floor pains.

“Fortunately, once more serious causes are ruled out, it’s possible to resolve PFD using biofeedback, pelvic floor exercises, and relaxation techniques, all of which may be provided by your doctor of chiropractic or in conjunction with a related healthcare professional”.
