Women Get Sports Hernias

You are a woman and are suffering from inguinal and groin pain. Unfortunately, you have been told that women do not get sports hernias.  To add to the problem, when you see your surgeon, he/she only talks with you for a few minutes and barely even examines you. You are told to rest. You are told to take some Advil. You are told to try physical therapy. In short, go away and do not bother me anymore. Then the doctor rushes off to see one of the male patients.

It is true that fewer women than men get sports hernias, but it is also true that women push their bodies just as hard as men. And women often suffer from Sports Hernia injuries. Over ten percent of the athletes that I take care of are women. And if a female athlete does not improve with conservative treatment then surgery is the best option, just as it is in men.

The results of surgical repair are excellent. Women recover quicker than men. And women certainly bitch less after surgery.

Let me know if you need help or have questions, it is important that you receive accurate information.
