How do you treat a groin injury? Hip or groin pain is a common complaint for which people are referred for physical therapy, with the hip region being involved in approximately 2% to 11% of running injuries (Carlos A. Guanche M.D., 2005).

It is characterised by pain in the groin area, which can range from mild to severe. Groin pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including overuse, prior injury or underlying medical conditions.
