There are many caused of pain in the area near the shoe. We will state a few of them which are the most frequent, so you can spot the problem more easily and proceed with the treatment. One of the causes for the pain in the upper inner thigh muscle is extreme use of that muscle. Adductor muscle is the location of your pain. It is mostly used when we run and move toes. It is located throughout the inner thigh. The pain and problems can be produced because of the groin pull, improper foot balance (balance restores by the adductor tightening), and most commonly, by running on wet and slippery surface. The treatment will have to start with absolute rest and no running for a least a week. When a week passes, try to do some stretching exercises for your leg, such as inside leg raise. These exercises need to be performed for 7 days, after which you can start to jog easily, and from then steadily increase the rate of exercises in order to repair your adductor.
If the problem was caused by improper balance, try putting a wedge in your shoes. This will regain balance and decrease the pressure on the adductor. When you experience a sudden and acute pain in the front of the thigh, chances are you have torn or pulled your quadriceps. The culprit for this is the hamstring which overpowered it and provoked the tear. The first thing you have to do when this occurs is to apply something cold for fifteen minutes. Wrapping your leg with a cold, wet towel is enough if you don\'t have an ice pack. After this, you need to put an Ace bandage. This will help the muscle by making it more compressed. Taking ibuprofen before eating can produce some positive effect. But never do this before running, since you can continue running, but carefully. The pain and discomfort should be gone in a week or two. People can also tear or pull hamstring. It is very similar to sciatica, but we will state the differences.
Sciatica causes pain in the outer thigh and sometimes lower back and hip, while hamstring causes pain in the back of the thigh. There is also a visible difference. Both conditions produce pain while stretching your leg to full extent, but if a lump is present on the back of the thigh, it\'s a hamstring tear. Sciatica can be aggravated if an individual is treated for hamstring tore. Therefore, it is very important to diagnose the problem properly. The tore is usually caused by extending the leg too much or too quickly or running on the banked area. The treatment consist of the taking of ibuprofen before a meal (not before running), putting ice packs for fifteen minutes and doing exercises that will stretch your hamstring. But, this has to be done carefully and gradually. Be careful not to over-strain the hamstring. If it is nothing serious, just a cramp, problems should disappear after three days, but in more serious cases, treatment will take seven to ten days. If these treatments aren\'t giving results, seek for medical attention.
