RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
sher,
What I don't know about the adductor release is if Meyers only recommends it for people who have adductor pain, or if he does it to relieve the opposing stress on the abdominus rectus connection to the pubic bone. Anybody out there know? The release scares me because it is messing with some fundamentally sound muscles, because the German doc doesn't do it, and because somebody on this thread at some point in the past felt that the whole procedure changed their gait enough that all kinds of other back and knee problems surfaced.
My hope in general is that the people who continue to post on this thread are mostly those with problems, and that those who healed well, either with or wothout surgery, have gone on their merry way. I am actually feeling quite a bit better, but I don't know if that is just because of the anti inflamatory medication, or if I am really improving. I believe it was Run Daddy who posted that Meyers said true AP will not heal on it's own, but when I brought that up, he said it was not necessarily true. I am increasing my mileage very slowly since I started running again 12 days ago, but this weekend I ran almost four miles two days in a row, and I still feel OK. That's the most I've tried in many months. My slim hope is that the medication allows me to do the exercises, and that they, in turn are strengthening the abdomen to the point that I will have little pain when I go off it. Even when I have a some pain, I now feel stronger. Who knows. I guess I'll know in a couple on months.
