RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
I am also from Canada and i have to say it sucks living here if you have this injury. I have had surgery with Dr. Muschaweck june 07 came back to Canada and Physiotherapists don't know what to do with me. I am going to the top physiotherapy clinic here in Toronto and its the first time they had a person with this type of injury. So they are trying exercises with me to see what will work. I still have a problem with walking, one leg is very very strong and one leg is weaker(sh leg). I have to mention that i was on a wheelchair for 4 months and walked with a cane for another 6 months before surgery so my case is a little bit different then most of you. For the guy living in Canada and waiting for surgery, make sure you get the right information. I am doing the exercises that i was given in Germany which helps a lot but i don't know how should i increase them. Here in Canada i was given pilates for recovery, and i got to tell you, pilates isnt good for this type of injury that involves a nerve. Anybody know any exercises that worked for them? to strengthen one side without aggravating the nerve? please share. I have been swimming every day which is amazing, but how do i strengthen the weak side of my body?
thanks.
