There are No “Stupid Questions”
Sports hernias are some of the most common injuries suffered by athletes, but some of the least understood by physicians. In all sports, injury prevention is key, and avoiding sports hernias is no exception. But how can athletes work toward preventing sports hernias while knowing so little about the injury itself?
Sports hernia injuries are complicated. They’re painful, they’re difficult to describe, and they don’t go away, no matter how much you ice that area. Recovery is often a long, frustrating path. Even the first step, finding a doctor with the right expertise to diagnose a sports hernia, can be more difficult than expected.
