RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
Since many of you have this injury and know the movements your sports require I would like to explain my son and see if what he does could have caused this injury.

My son doesn’t run or play sports. He is 11 years old and is a High Functioning Autistic. He does a twisting and spinning motion most of the day. If he is happy he is jumping up and down and spinning. If he is walking or running he will go a few steps and jump and spin. If he is mad he jumps and spins and when he is mad he jumps and spins with great force. Think of a soccer player when they head butt the ball except he will continue the motion through a full spin.

The surgeon said yesterday that he has all the “classic” symptoms of a hernia but she can’t feel one. So tomorrow we go for an ultrasound.

I was wondering if he would be capable of getting the injury this thread talks about considering his twisting and spinning.
What do you think?
Thanks
