This Kinesiology taping technique helps alleviate pain from adductor strains and from groin pulls and strains. The symptoms usually present with pain either at the origin in the groin area, in the middle of the inner leg, or at the insertion near the inner knee. Adductor and groin strains are commonly due to tissue overload starting with faulty biomechanics in the feet and overpronation, causing the muscles of the inner leg to work beyond their capacity. This is why my foot taping technique, my custom orthotics and stability/motion control shoes will usually improve and prevent adductor/groin strains. Weak glutes (abductors) can even be the source of groin strains. The adductor muscles should never be a major source of power during running, even though they are common running-related injuries.
