The “Adductor” muscles are the muscles of your inner thigh that attach from your pubic bone to your inner knee, that perform the movement of closing your legs, crossing your legs, swinging your knee and leg from one side to the other across the front of your body such as kicking a football with the inside of your foot. An Adductor Strain is when you stretch the muscles and tendons of the Adductor muscle beyond their normal anatomical limit.
Pain in your inner thigh can be a sign of adductor strain. The muscles of the inner thigh can also be very tender or painful to the touch, especially harder pressure over the area. A severe strain can cause swelling in the area.
