RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
dr muschaweck (munich) doesn't call the sports hernia a sports hernia. she calls the injury sportsman's groin. she says it is not a hernia but similar. the surgery is done via hernioplasty. it does involve the inguinal canal but the posterior side.
sportsmans groin injuries can start out small and with some people the injury never really progresses to get all that much worse and with some the injury can get full-blown and cause serious pain and may trigger other musculoskeletal imbalances.
women and men alike can get the injury but i think men are more prone since in general men do more heavy labor/moving things around, and men also have a different setup with the inguinal canal, making them more prone to injuring the tissues down in there.
muschaweck is the world's most knowledgeable surgeon regarding this injury. that is why i went to her.
almost 14 weeks post op and i am getting better every week. swimming 3 days a week now without much pain. it is going to take time for my body to readjust and get back into balance, but the progression is getting faster and the pains (esp nerve pains from the injury and surgery) have mostly gone away.
