Understanding Sports Hernias
I will be doing another webinar for StrengthandConditioningWebinars.com called “Understanding Sports Hernias.”
This is from an article I wrote on the topic:
“An area that has become of increasing interest to me, and to many others in the fields of performance enhancement and physical therapy, is the area of sports hernia. It seems like every week another athlete is having surgery for a ‘sports hernia”. In order to begin to understand the concept of sports hernia, the first thing we need to do is attempt to describe a sports hernia. In the technical sense, the sports hernia is a tear in the lower abdominal wall in the inguinal area. Unlike a classic inguinal hernia there is rarely a significant tear that results in a bulge. Rather there is a gradual onset of pain in the lower abdominal area, usually beginning as groin pain.”
I will be discussing in further detail the definition and reason for the increase in sports hernias, what we can do to prevent them and what we can do to rehab them.
This is a 50 minute presentation with 20 minutes reserved for questions.
