1. Epidemiology and Comorbidities

This chapter will identify adductor strain epidemiology in American football, Australian rules football, soccer, and ice hockey. It will discuss overlapping conditions of pathology surrounding the pelvic girdle. In addition, proper terminology when referring to injuries to the groin will be discussed.

2. Risk Factors and Screening

This chapter will focus on both intrinsic and extrinsic risk factors for adductor strains. Risk factors include age, previous injury and playing surface. Screening we will cover includes range of motion, strength and the absolute ratio/muscle imbalance.

3. Rehabilitation

This chapter will focus on a strategy for injury prevention for athletes. It will describe programs designed to decrease adductor strain risk in ice hockey and soccer players, and consequently demonstrate the effectiveness of these programs. During this chapter we will also review movement biomechanics and possible mechanisms of injuries for adductor strains.

4. Principles of Rehabilitation and Return to Play

This chapter aims to discuss principles of rehabilitation for adductor strains. Emphasis will be put on the pathology of the healing muscle and the difference between passive therapy and active therapy. It will review each phase of rehabilitation and provide clinical milestones to progress through phases of rehabilitation.
