Adductor Tendinopathy

The adductor longus tendon (sometimes called the 'Rider's bone') is the thick tendon that can be felt in the lower, inner region of the groin. It attaches to the pubic bone next to the pubic symphysis.

Adductor tendinopathy (or tendinitis) behaves in some ways like other related tendon injuries, such as Achilles tendinitis. However, its bony attachment to the pelvis is unique, and there is a consequential overlap with the condition of osteitis pubis.

It is often difficult to differentiate between adductor tendinopathy and osteitis pubis, as these two conditions can co-exist.
