Differential Diagnoses

70% of groin pain in footballers is adductor-related groin pain; however there are a number of other conditions around the hip and groin that the player may be presenting with. Both Andrea and Liam will walk you through the key things to know when it comes to differentials.

Clinical Assessment

The groin is a complex region, meaning your palpation and clinical assessment skills need to be first class. Learn and improve your assessment skills by seeing what assessments the experts do and how they perform them


Rehabilitation is the cornerstone to a great outcome for athletes presenting hip and groin pain. Andrea walks you through her processes with modifications and progressions to suit each of the common presentations of athletic hip and groin pain.
