RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
Interesting theory.. I'm sure both you and Surf have done your homework.. With that said, I've seen medical professionals for numerous tears and sprains and I've yet to meet one who's suggested inflammation is a positive factor in the healing process. Even those who choose alternative medicine use ice for injuries to reduce inflammation. The human body is miraculous and resilient when it comes to protecting and healing itself, but with the marvels of modern medicine, it's my belief that process can be enhanced with proper medication.

As I often state, we all have to do what's best for us based upon our own unique situations and desired end results. My thoughts are Dr. UM (and other SH surgeons) has treated thousands of SH patients back to health through her surgical process and recovery regiment. With no medical background, who am I to argue with that. She said take the pills.. I took them though I'm not suggesting a successful post-op recovery can't be attained through alternative means.

Anti Inflammatories block the checmical the body makes that is needed during the inflammatory process. That is why during prolotherapy we are told to NOT take Antiinflammatories becasue the whole idea behind proltherapy is to inflam the area so the natural process takes place..........If you read on the inflamation process it will explain it better then I have........there finding Anti inflammitories taken directly after any injury are not a good idea.......Like Surf said the inflamation process is needed in those critcal first 3 days....actually I think I read the process takes anywhere from 3-10 days....but then again surgery is a differrent animal because the tendon is surgically repaired therefore taking anti inflamatories may not be as big of a deal.......Ive got some HGH set aside for my recovery process :)....
