RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
Johnny sent me an e mail in which he makes a very good point. This thread has been the only source of information for some to help get on the right track to a diagnosis, and solution. It seems that if some of these people in medicine didn't encounter medical text on sports hernia or even soft tissue pelvic damage and resulting rotation, in whatever medical school they went to, then the condition simply does not exist. I read this thread from the beginning, and alot of people CLEARLY had unnecessary text book inguinal hernia repairs for a sports hernia problem. Well, close, is not close enough. Ya, there is some research by Meyers that indicates some got a theraputic effect from the scar tissue that developed from the inguinal repair, but it was simply consequential, or dumb luck. The story that sticks in my mind is the one from someone who posted who lives an hour from Philly, PA, Home of Bill Meyers on the mount. Bill and his sports hernia deal have Rock Star status in Philly, yet the person who posted said he saw a hernia group practice and they were oblivious to the term sports hernia, even though Donavon McNabb was all over the papers with his sports hernia problem and progress. How the hell does anyone or these doctors explain that they didn't know what a sports hernia was, being that they were only an hour from downtown BILLADELPHIA and Bill Meyers?
