Class overview

The diagnosis and treatment of groin pain is difficult because the anatomy of the region is complex, and because two or more injuries often co-exist. However, complex doesn’t always have to be complicated. This Masterclass aims to shed light on this challenging condition by teaching you a systematic approach to groin pain. The lecture series covers several important topics such as groin pain aetiology, characteristics, subjective and objective examination, and management. Finally, the Masterclass concludes by discussing evidence-based strategies to reduce the risk of groin pain.
