RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
um told me i could be active in a week, so i believed her but at the same time trusted my own gut and just took it easy.
i did do some core work but that also hurt me. the nerves along the left psoas muscle are still irritated. some days better than others, depends on what i do and if i wear a belt or not (belt=pain).
i am seeing a very respected pain doc (and then some) in nyc who will be using some kind of pulse-ultrasound type thing that is supposedly breakthrough. i wonder if it is the same?
when you see um again you can mention my case and how you sought out her after all these great posts on this site. this thread saved me from going the wrong route.
dr um should remember me.
my left hip is messed up a bit, torn labrum and probably fai. but i am not going to get surgery for the fai. i am going about healing the tightened and damaged muscles around the hip and groin.
i did do core strengthening exercises about 1 to 2 months post-op. it hurt. maybe made me stronger but each session yeilded pain. when i stopped, things started to improve. i would recommend slow, easy yoga such as iyengar, to get the structure back (the only thing i can guarantee is that your muscles are out of balance) to your body, but only when the nerves have calmed down. this can take a while. i was too excited to get back into my active sports, and i almost went too far a few times. now i am not in a rush to do the same things, i am glad to be walking again!
