RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
I incurred a similar type injury last October (05'). After playing soccer I returned home with a sore groin (and lower abs) and could barely walk the following week. I played through it on the weekends only mustering enough strength to run at 3/4 speed and passing lightly (no ability to shoot at all without pain).

I ended up taking about three to four weeks off and resumed play in a tournament. Things seemed normal until about after an hour of play. Fortunately this was the last game of the season and I was able to rest it two months without playing.

I recently just started up playing again and the first time out it hurt, but the second time round (two weeks later) I noticed more strength in the area. I was a bit sore the next day, but it seems to be improving. I am going to slowly reduce the times between playing.

In some cases like mine, I believe taking time off helps. I'm just a weekend soccer player so this isn't as difficult for me as many of you runners though.
