RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
lt, thanks a lot for your excellent input!
no worries about me being ready to explode or anything, quite the contrary as i am just fascinated with the human body and biomehanics (this injury has lead me to working on applying to grad school).
i am confused if you were asking me if the hoffbrau haus still is up and running. for sure it is, very loud and full of cheer (or prost?) and blaring brass instsruments.
i had a great time at the beer gartens and various ice cream places. not to mention i was lucky to meet some very cool people. if by chance you go to munich, i recommend paulaner haus, great food and excellent beer. the beer and brat combo at the cafe under the hacker-pschorr tents by the glockenspiel is the way to go for food, suds, and people watching.

this is a great thread- i have learned more about the pelvis and lower abdomen from here than all my docs combined. i wonder how many sports hernias (or beginning of sports hernias) there are in the us. seems to me that it creates several varieties of pain and dysfunction symptoms. i am glad that i am way over the worst (i won't even bother with describing when i was at my worst in summer 2005). the surgery was necessary, but i have the feeling i have a way to go before i can be active again. the hangliding lessons will have to wait till later.

i appreciate your sending me that article and keeping up with helping with everyone's curiosities about this injury and related syndromes. this info is pretty elusive...
i am curious, lt, how long have you been injured and has your pain been limiting you from doing normal activities, too? i know when it was really bad i couldn't walk. at all. but i must say i don't really have adductor pain anymore post-op, i think, i can stretch my adductors and don't have a pain reaction. my pains are localised mostly in the lower back like you say, and along the inguinal ligament, off the pubic bone, and a bit in the perineum. mostly on the left. most pains that are left seem to be the two lumps at the ligament, though. the problems assicated witht the pelvic floor seem to be gone.

i too wish that dr meyers could give us all some input, he seems to be the expert in the states. 13 variations? holy cow! i'd be really interested in learning about those. fascinating stuff, really.
