Long-standing adductor-related groin pain
The beneficial short-term effect seen with a specific exercise therapy programme aimed at improving strength and coordination of the muscles acting on the pelvis was shown in one study to be highly effective.  A follow-up study has shown the effects have lasted over a 10-year period. 
Certain conditions, such as tension-sided femoral neck stress fractures, require prompt recognition and timely surgical management to avoid complications and added morbidity.
Femoral-neck stress fractures
Medial (compression)-sided femoral neck stress fractures are inherently stable and have an excellent prognosis for healing with conservative measures.
Their lateral (tension)-sided counterparts are potentially unstable fractures at increased risk for displacement leading to significant morbidity. However, prompt surgical treatment with internal fixation drastically decreases the risk of displacement, with minimal added treatment-related morbidity.
The long-term prognosis following early identification and appropriate treatment of these injuries is highly favourable. The risk of recurrence of a femoral neck stress fracture is low provided that the patient is compliant with his or her restrictions and treatment plan.
