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. The condition is diagnosed through a combination of patient history, clinical tests, and MRIs. The groin pain may occur only after activity or it may be described as occurring with activity but without restricting movement. More severe pain will restrict activity; some athletes with adductor enthesis have chronic (constant) pain that may get marginally better but never goes away.

When life gets you down, let the power of music wash over you and give you some words to live by. Sure, the pain can feel like unbreakable chains that tie you down while life passes you by. Don't let pain "step all over you". Ask yourself, "Are you going to let (it) hold you down and make you cry"? With an open heart and open mind, the doorway of change can open. No one can open doors "expect for you." You just have to "hold on for one more day".
"Don't you know things can change"? Those unhappy days, those incredible messes can turn around and go your way. Maybe you were teased, abused, attacked, or injured? Lose the blame and let those worries pass you by. It is worth your time to "break free from the chains". You can change your life. Make up your mind to "hold on for one more day cause it is gonna go your way". Yeah, there is pain, but you need to hold on because "thing'll go your way". Just hold on for one more day.
