A groin pull, also known as a groin strain, results from putting too much stress onto your muscles in the groin and thigh. If there is too much pressure or stress applied to these muscles too forcefully or too suddenly, it can result in the groin to be overstretched or torn.

Groin pulls are a common injury to individuals who play sports that involve running and jumping. A sudden jump or change in direction are particularly common causes. Those who play soccer, football, and hockey are more susceptible to such injuries. 

Symptoms of a Groin Pull

Symptoms of a groin pull include the following:

  • Pain and tenderness in the groin and inside of the thigh
  • Pain when bringing the legs together
  • Pain when you raise your knee
  • A popping or snapping feeling during the injury, followed by severe pain
