Many peripheral nerves cross or innervate the anatomic structures of the inguinal region. Paratenonitis associated with intratendinous degeneration. Posterior inguinal wall and conjoint tendon weakness determine groin pain, without a clinically apparent hernia This case report describes a case of clinically suspected adductor tendinopathy in an amateur athlete confirmed by MRI Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

Surgery may be recommended to treat tendon tears, or severe and persistent tendinopathy. The Serial coronal T2 MRI, located at the level of the body of the pubis and the attachment of the adductor tendons, demonstrated an addutor bright signal within the bone marrow of the body of the pubis bilaterally and the adductor longus tendon at its attachment to the body of the pubis Adfuctor 2.

The abnormal tendon is compatible with degeneration and micro tears, as they generally coexist. Adductor Magnus is the largest muscle of the group, sitting posterior to the others.

In this area tendinopatyh are many ligaments, muscles, tendons and fasciae which are inserted on adducfor pubis or on the symphysis pubis.


Rehabilitation measures, particularly in acute phases, consists of postural balance techniques through global and site specific stretching, the use of mechanical and proprioceptive orthotic insoles and, if necessary, global adductog reeducation RPG 41 Fig. Pain relief is recommended aductor the first instance, although NSAIDS may be ineffective due to non inflammatory nature of the injury.

Br J Sports Med. Results of inguinal canal repair in athletes with sports hernia. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. The use of radiography, magnetic resonance, and ultrasound in the diagnosis of hip, pelvis, and groin injuries. Stage 2 can be difficult to distinguish clinically and some reversal may be possible, but load management for the long term health of the tendon is advised to stimulate the load structure.

The inguinal canal is bordered by the internal and the external orifices and four walls:. MRI is the imaging of choice for detailed morphological and elevated contrast resolution images. Decontracting massotherapy is important to relax tight muscles, such as adductors, in rectus-adductor syndrome, and for muscle stretching.

T1W sequences are properly anatomic ones showing a good anatomical representation of the examined structures. Individuals may respond well to rehabilitation programmes or the in some cases the tendon may be unresponsive to a range of treatment.

There are several review articles examining groin and hip pain with associated adductor pathology. Pharmacotherapy consists of systemic administration or local injection of Tendimopathy, corticosteroids 39 and, recently, supplements aimed at muscles and tendons hydrolized collagen, vitamins, Methylsulfonylmethane, Arginine, Ornithine and platelet derived growth factor PDGF They are used when we cross our legs and help to balance the pelvis in standing and walking.

J Orthop Sports Phys Ther. In the asductor, reactive stages, the key is to modify the load to a tolerable level whereby the tendon can recover and heal.

In advanced stages the pathology could progress bilaterally affecting social life and everyday activities such as climbing stairs, or getting up from a bed or a chair.
