RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
slowly getting better.
upgraded to doing more abdominal exercises such as crunches over the weekend without any real issues. i think that maybe most pain is a result of formation of scar tissue and also "working through" scar tissue with exercise. apparently that can equal pain.
oh yeah,started swimming again last week, going again today.

btw, from what i have been reading, a leg-length discrepency can help cause muscle imbalances and whatnot that can also aid in the formation of the sports hernia.
do any of you guys/gals have problems with one of your knees, in particular the knee that is on the same side of the hernia (or if you have both sides affected with pain, does one knee bother you more than the other?). i am wondring if leg length difference is hard to see. a doc once told me that i did have a longer leg. i also, within the past 5 years, have developed problems in the "longer leg" knee. all before the hernia. and the knee still hurts after two surgeries....

thanks
