RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
i don't know how to answer that stuff but i do know that dr muschaweck says all sports hernias have adductor pain but not tears.
i think, but not positive, that when your pelvis gets rotated, i can help cause adductor pains because of the muscle imbalances that happen. you no doubt have muscle imbalance issues. sports hernias cause them as the injury lingers. your hip is most likely off, which can exacerbate the imbalance and cause extra strains on areas like the adductors, pectineus, and rectus abdominis.
apparently issues with rectus can lead to osteitis pubis. letting a sh go for a really, really long time can generate symtpoms of op or op itself, from what i was told.

apparently the adductor releases may not be necessary, but the fascial tightening should be addressed. but meyers also has had good results with releases.

my adductor pain at the origin on pubic bone has gotten better via stretching lightly/yoga, along with manual therapy. go see an osteopath or even better, an advanced rolfer, and maybe that will start helping you.
but bottom line is, if you have ap, you will more than likely need surgery. the tears in teh tissues will not be repaired on their own.

also, dr um says the longer you have the sh the longer it takes for the nerves to calm down post-operation. it will take as long as you had it before the surgery.
