RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin

You and I have very similar symptoms although I have not had surgery. I have been dealing with this since late last summer and I'm now starting to see some minor improvement after rest and physical therapy. I play soccer also recreationally and I think I caused this by doing intense kicking drills with my left foot - which is my weak leg. I still have a lot of adductor tightness, but no pain at the moment. I adjusted my physical therapy to include deep tissue massage - which seems to be helping. Recently, I have noticed that hip flexor exercises seem to help me loosen up. My hip really bothers me when I do adductor stretches.

Additionally, I just recently started taking 6-8 grams of fish oils while using arnica for inflammation. I have no idea if that stuff works or not, but nothing else has helped me. I am also seeing a chiropractor to make sure everything is in line. I am feeling better today, but I have had numerous setbacks and it is quite depressing at times - so tomorrow I might write back and tell you how miserable I am. I'll let you know how it goes from here. I don't think my symptoms are as bad as most, but it has been painfully frustrating.
