Pain in the groin region is a common symptom in general and specialist practice. Besides specific structural problems, e.g. hernias, degenerative articular or visceral pathologies, that need specific treatment, or have to be excluded via a careful diagnosis, groin pain can be a referred pain symptom caused by highly variable intersegmental convergence mechanisms of a segmental dysfunction from the thoracolumbar down to the sacrococcygeal junction.

Besides that, peripheral nerve pain syndromes, local myofascial lesions (e.g. tenderpoints) can cause the same clinical signs of regional pain in the groin.

Aim of this presentation is to give a structural overview of the possible mechanisms causing this regional pain syndrome, that can be diagnosed as a specific functional problem and treated via Manual Medicine.
