Adductor Tendonitis

Adductor Tendonitis

Adductor tendonitis is the inflammation of the adductor tendons. The adductor muscles are prone to sport-related injuries, as the tendons often need to rapidly shift to the opposite direction.

The following sport activities often cause adductor tendonitis: basketball, football, baseball, hockey, tennis, skating. The hip adductors are often injured due to extreme turning or jumping. Excessive colliding force can lead to tendon tear and other serious injuries.

The common symptoms include: groin muscle tightening, groin muscle pain, muscle bruising or swelling. The adductor tendons tend to have poor healing ability, because their blood supply is poor.
