RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
lt, i never saw any other docs (cattey, meyers, etc) because i saw dr muschaweck before any other arrangements to see another doc ever happened. i was lucky in that i could travel very little to have met up with her.
go see whichever specialist you live closer to. then take the next step if need be. much depends on what your insurance would cover. mine would cover nothing at all.
if the meeting with muschaweck hadn't been so convenient for me i would have gone to meyers for the exam at least.

bradly, etc. one thing that i have learned via my own injury, and studying the hell out of it, along with the treatments via my phys therapist- the psoas muscles play a large role in the twisting of the pelvis. tight/strained psoas can yeild bad muscular/musculoskeletal imbalances, which make one more prone to sports hernias as well as other groin/pelvis injuries. the psoas is the heart of your core. damage to that muscle and/or the tendons is very painful and may even mimic symptoms of a sports hernia without the full-blown sh.
my psoas was damaged in my accident, never figured out how badly since my insurance refused an mri, saying it wasn't medically necessary (what a freaking joke). the tight psoas caused my pelvis to twist, thus the muscular imbalances, therefore the extra pains and long recovery. apparently the sports hernia takes place in the vicinity of the psoas. a very complicated area of the body.
my psoas muscles on both sides (i had a bilateral sh) have been way tight for some time. it is a slow recovery. i recommend if you are having increasing pains then definitely go to a pt and learn about some exercises/stretches to start loosening up the psoas and see if that helps with your symptoms. make sure the pt has experience in trigger point release massage and manual therapy (not like lou ferigno with a weight room, in other words, if that makes sense, that is not the type of pt you need).
