  • Maintain good strength of lower body musculature
  • Train in multiple planes and load the muscles in a sport specific matter
  • Increase general endurance as the chance of injury increases when training results in muscle fatigue

  • Increase general endurance as the chance of injury increases when training results in muscle fatigue
  • Maintain equal bilateral strength to avoid compensations
  • Increase core strength

Groin Strain:

  • Maintain good flexibility of lower body musculature
  • Perform a well-rounded, dynamic warm up prior to activity
  • Perform static stretching after activity
  • Maintain good strength of lower body musculature
  • Train in multiple planes and load the muscles in a sport specific matter
  • Increase general endurance as the chance of injury increases when training results in muscle fatigue
  • Maintain equal bilateral strength to avoid compensations
  • Increase core strength

Snapping Hip Syndrome:

  • Proper warm up before sports activities
  • Stretch tight muscles (hamstrings, hip flexors, quadriceps and calf muscles)
  • Do not play through pain!

Hip Labral Tear:
