RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
I just visited a Sports Osteo who told me that the osteitis pubis condition can be caused by SH - osteitis pubis is a term for pubic bone inflamation.

He told me that radiating pain to the testicles, adductors and flexor that occur later in the run compared to early in the run are a result of the muscles basically spazzing - the reflex of the testicles retreating into the lower abdomen are also a spaz reaction to the injury.

Anyway, after an XRAY he spotted a bony build up on just right of center on my pubic bone - said this can be a result of the rectus abdonminas (I think he said) pulling away from the bone, which is a type of SH. He ordered an MRI, which he said can often reveal further SH conditions. He also said he has seen at least 10 Sports Hernias and that Dr. Meyers, Cattey, etc are not the only game in town when it comes to surgery. Told me of 2 surgeons in Central Pa who have operated on many soccer players with good results.

I'll report back after the MRI.
