The iliopsoas and rectus femoris are the major hip flexors. Repetitive stress on the hip flexor muscles without adequate recovery is the major cause of muscle strain. Improper gait can also create this type of problem. This injury often occurs in running, in cycling, and in kicking and jumping activities. The symptoms include pain, tenderness, and inflammation in the groin area.
Dry needling acupuncture is very effective in treating this injury. Needles can be applied to the ARPs on the iliopsoas muscle, the adductor muscles, the rectus femoris muscle, and the iliotibial band. The hamstring muscles may need treatment, too. Two treatment sessions per week should be offered.
