Marathon Runner
RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
Had lower addominal pain after running a marathon 3 years ago. Rested the injury for a month before going to doctor and was sent to physical therapy. After 6 weeks the pain was worse. MRI, CAT Scans, and traditional hernia physical showed nothing. I could not raise my legs off the ground while laying flat on my back. This also caused sharp pain in groin and lower ab. Saw a general surgeon in Rochester, NY (Dr. Joeseph Johnson) who told me I had a Sportsman's Hernia. He claimed I would be running 4-6 weeks after surgery with no pain. He had done several of these surgerys on Professional Soccer Players from our local Rochester Rhinos team. He was right and I've been running pain free for 2 1/2 years now. You need to find a doctor that is knowledgable with this type of injury.
