RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
Surf, one addendum to my previous post. You asked how often I was doing the PT. It was 3x/week for an hour per session. Can't really say what did me the most good. I did feel like the bridging and planks midway through helped me turn the corner from painful to pain-free, but there was a lot of other stuff happening with the PT that could have caused that improvement, too. Overall, I'd say if you're truly committed to PT as an alternative to surgery, be prepared to invest years, not months. Dr. Meyers did tell me about a recent study from Europe which found that 5 years of PT could "cure" people. I wasn't ready for that kind of investment, especially after just one try at skating brought back my pain following all that PT.

And I have not had the surgery yet. I'm scheduled for the second week in July.

Good luck to you and everyone else who's fighting the fight.
