Question:

I have a stabbing pain near my groin area of right leg that radiates down the front of my thigh to my knee when I walk. It literally takes my breath away. I’ve been stretching it & rolling on a foam roller but it’s relentless.


Answer:

Thanks for reaching out. Without doing a detailed physical exam it is difficult to provide a specific answer. The symptoms you are describing can often originate from the hip, back, or muscles and nerves that run through your leg. Through an examination a physical therapist will be able to determine from which region your pain is stemming and provide specific exercises and treatment accordingly. Patients seen for similar complaints are often provided with a combination of hands on treatment, strengthening, and stretching based on your specific needs. During your examination the physical therapist will be able to determine whether you will benefit from physical therapy or require further medical workup.
