Groin pain occur from a tear or strain in one of the adductor muscles, there are muscles found in the groin area, they run from the inner thighs to the inner side of the knee and are responsible for movement of the legs  and giving stablity to the pelvic region.

This strain or pull on the groin muscles occurs from constant over use, stress or rapid movement, which builds up pressure on the adductor muscles and finally causing them to strain or pull beyond its limits. This is accompanied by swelling or tenderness of the small fibers and ofcourse groin pain. This is common in athletes and sportspeople, it’s usually triggered by insufficient warm up exercises.
