This Kinesiology taping technique helps alleviate pain from the most common adductor strain and from groin pulls and strains. This running injury usually causes pain either at the origin in the groin area, in the middle area of the leg, or at the insertion near the inner knee. Adductor strains are commonly due to tissue overload starting with faulty biomechanics in the feet and over pronation, causing muscles of the inner leg to work beyond their normal limits. Adductors should never be a major source of power during running, even though they are common running injury.
