Do You Have A Sports Hernia?

Sports Hernia patients are predominantly men, although women can also suffer this type of injury. Athletes participating in extreme and repeated twisting-and-turning sports such as football, hockey, soccer, and tennis are the most likely to be injured.

Symptoms of a Sports Hernia include:

  • Pain in the lower abdomen
  • Pain in the groin
  • Pain in the testicle (males)
  • Persistent pain lasting over a month

Athletes report chronic inguinal or groin pain but experience relief from rest. But the pain recurs when the Athlete returns to exercise. Most Athletes do not remember a specific accident that started the problems, but they recall multiple small injuries over the years. Athletes commonly are misdiagnosed as a groin pull or a strained abdominal muscle. If you believe you have a Sports Hernia, then make an appointment with Dr. Brown. He will give you the answers you need. He will begin with a comprehensive evaluation and physical examination followed by treatment recommendations and thorough recovery strategy.
