I think I might have a Sports Hernia, but it is too early to tell. I'm really hoping to get through my 15 week outdoor season without injury. If I DO have a sports hernia, will I likely be able to run through it this season and get worked on in July?
I guess what I'm asking is, does this injury prevent you from running, at least in the early stages (first 3 months or so)?
osaru is right, only you can be the judge. But understand that AP is not a static condition. The longer the athlete persists in the sport with the injury, the worse it gets with other problems developing. Meyers told me he's identified 18 unique syndromes under the AP umbrella. Some athletes present multiple syndromes, making the surgey more complex and the recovery rate slightly lower.
