Competitive and recreational sports athletes can develop painful groin symptoms from a pulled muscle. The condition is called adductor enthesis . Adductor refers to the group of four leg muscles that attach to the pubic bone in the pelvic/groin area. Enthesis is the place where the tendon meets the bone. Usually this spot is a mixture of fibrous and cartilage soft tissue. Overuse from repeated kicking and/or sprinting sets up an inflammatory response that eventually becomes chronic with telltale changes in the soft tissue structures.

In this study, athletes evaluated and treated at a sports medicine clinic for g...

When PAD becomes more severe, symptoms can include: Pain or tingling in the feet or toes, even at rest Weakened calf muscles Painful non-bleeding ulcers on the feet or toes that do not heal Treatment Treatment for PAD includes both lifestyle mea...
