Groin pain is a difficult clinical problem because of the variety of conditions that are potentially responsible. Much of the "theory" of groin pain is just that, theory, and much needs to be done to document the pathomechanics and symptomatology of this anatomical region. Notwithstanding the above, clinicians should be comfortable in the knowledge that they can provide relief in most cases and a cure in more than a few. The recommended diagnostic approach is anatomical, supported by judicious selection of diagnostic imaging techniques. Management then comprises a considered approach to functional recovery, allowing time to heal, regain strength, and restore mobility. Patients should be reminded that there are no short cuts and precipitate return to sport is not worth the risk in most cases.
