No statistics: No clear statistics available for this injury, however, runners make up a large portion of my practice. Based on my personal experience I would say this is a relatively uncommon injury but when it does occur is very frustrating to treat because recovery usually takes several weeks to at times months for complete resolution. One of the biggest issues is trying to get a runner to stop running.

It has been reported that muscle injection sites have atrophied in such a way as to "crater".

I regrettably got a corticosteroid ing into my left adductor tendon 2 yrs ago-now the fat is gone and it is weak/shrunk. Is this permanent?

Yes and No: The fat being gone is permanent, although some cosmetic surgeons are having some success with fat transfers. You may want to consult a specialist. As far as the weakness, see your doctor about a referral to physical therapy. They should be able to help return the strength and flexibility to the area.
