Athletic groin pain (AGP) is prevalent in field sports that require rapid changes of direction. The purpose of this study was to investigate the kinetic and kinematic changes that occurred in an unplanned reactive cutting manoeuvre following a successful rehabilitation intervention. Kinematics and kinetics were analysed using statistical parametric mapping in 23 patients before and after an exercise intervention programme. Significant improvements were found in all subscales of the Copenhagen Hip and Groin Outcome Score and biomechanical changes were identified at the pelvis, knee and ankle. These findings provide insight into mechanical variables of potential importance in AGP as identified during a manoeuvre based on a common sporting task.
