Groin Pain Treatment at SA Wellness Centre in Adelaide

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.

What causes groin pain?


  • Muscle strains and sprains: These are often caused by overuse or repetitive motions. For example, if you play a lot of sports, you may be susceptible to muscle strains and sprains in your groin area.
  • Herniated discs: A herniated disc in your lower spine can put pressure on the nerves in your pelvic area, leading to groin pain.
  • Pinched nerves: Similar to herniated discs, pinched nerves in your lower spine can also cause pain in the groin area.
  • Arthritis: This degenerative joint condition can lead to inflammation and stiffness, both of which can contribute to groin pain.
  • Sciatica: This is a condition that occurs when the sciatic nerve becomes irritated or compressed. The sciatic nerve runs from the lower back all the way through the buttocks and down the legs. When it becomes compressed or irritated, it can cause pain in any (or all) of those areas – including the groin.

Chiropractic treatment for groin pain in Adelaide

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.


Physiotherapy treatment for groin pain

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. 


Massage therapy for groin pain

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.
