Considering Mesh Repair for a Sports Hernia?

…We’ve Got Some Recommended Reading For You

While getting a correct sports hernia diagnosis can be difficult, sports hernia repair surgery is more straightforward. There are two types of procedures: traditional open surgery and mesh repair. Using mesh to repair sports hernias is a newer approach that claims to give an advantage over traditional repair methods. Claims is the operative word there.

Before settling on one solution, it’s critical to speak with your sports hernia specialist. Rest and physical therapy, the most common treatments, are not complicated. Sometimes though, surgery is needed to fully repair the muscle tear. Surgery can effectively treat a sports hernia, but it’s important to choose the right approach of the two available.

Need a New Resolution Already?

How About Lowering Your Risk for Sports Hernia Injuries?

Resolutions often focus on being healthier, both physically and emotionally. Get fit. Eat better. Spend more time with family. Drink more water. New Year’s resolutions always seem to follow the same pattern. Change your habits, and you will change your life.

But when we flip the calendar to February, those vague goals are replaced by former bad habits and dealing with everyday life. So this year, consider making a different type of resolution, one that is short and simple, but will have a significant impact on your life. This year, resolve to reduce your risk of a sports hernia injury. Not an athlete? That doesn’t matter.

Anyone can sustain a sports hernia, from professional athletes to Netflix bingers. A sports hernia is one common injury that spans all ages and activities. One occurs when the groin muscles tear. Muscles can tear…
