What Is a Sports Hernia?

A hernia occurs when there is an unnatural opening in the abdominal or pelvic wall.  A SPORTS HERNIA is the common name given to a condition called ATHLETIC PUBALGIA.  This occurs when there is inflammation and/or disruption of the insertion of rectus muscle or the adductor muscle at the level of the pelvic bone.

Sports Hernia Symptoms

SPORTS HERNIA or ATHLETIC PUBALGIA can give acute or insidious pain.  It generally presents as pain in the lower abdomen/groin which lingers.  It does not present as a lump in the groin as may be the case with an Inguinal Hernia.

Sports Hernia Treatment Options

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms you should seek the opinion of a physician specializing in this area.  Once the diagnosis is made treatments include rest, anti-inflammatory medications and PT.  Depending on you individual situation, surgical repair may be suggested.
