Returning the hip flexor muscles to it’s normal length and addressing any damaged (strained) portion of the muscle will relieve the pain. A consultation and biomechanical exam will usually be quick to reveal what caused the strain in the first place.

Thigh & Groin Overview
Sitting (as many of us do for work) predisposes us to straining this muscle due to the frequent shortened length.
Pain in the front of the hip running down the front of the leg and into the knee as well as weakness and giving out of the leg are the most common symptoms.
Muscles of the upper leg (Quads – front of the upper leg, Hamstrings – back of the upper leg, and Groin – inside of the upper leg) are susceptible to injury through both overuse and sudden movement.
Nerve symptoms (numbness, tingling, burning) on the outside of the thigh from the waist to the knee are the main symptoms of this condition.
