If you’re among the many people who suffer from occasional (or chronic) groin pain, you may be wondering whether there’s anything you can do to get relief. The good news is that there are several treatments which can help, including chiropractor treatment, physiotherapy and massage.
Chiropractic treatment is a drug-free, surgery-free approach to healthcare that focuses on treating musculoskeletal conditions with manual manipulation and adjustments. In other words, our qualified and experienced chiropractors use their hands to manipulate the muscles and joints in order to promote healing. When it comes to treating groin pain specifically, we’ll often focus on providing relief for sciatica and herniated discs – two of the most common causes of this type of pain.
To treat sciatica, our chiropractors will often utilise manual manipulation and adjustments to relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve, and this will help reduce irritation and inflammation so that you can begin to experience relief from your symptoms. The process is similar for herniated discs.
We might also utilise other treatment modalities like targeted exercises and stretches, electrical stimulation therapy, cold laser therapy, and more.
There are several benefits of using physiotherapy to treat groin pain. First, it can help to reduce the inflammation and swelling around the affected area. Second, it can help to stretch and strengthen the muscles in the area, which can help to prevent further injury. Finally, physiotherapy can also help to improve circulation and increase range of motion.
All of these benefits work together to help alleviate the symptoms of groin pain. If you’re suffering from groin pain, consider meeting with a physiotherapist to see if this type of treatment is right for you.
There are a number of different types of massages that can be effective in relieving groin pain. Swedish massage is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes and light pressure to relax the muscles. Deep tissue massage is a more intense form of massage that uses slow, strong strokes to target deep muscle tissue, while sports massage is another option that can be beneficial for athletes or those who have sustained an injury to the groin area.
At SA Wellness Centre, our qualified and experienced massage therapists will work closely with you to determine which form of massage treatment will be most effective for your specific condition.
