Our common need: Rehab
I guess I'm about the only current participant in this LetsRun thread who is trying to recover from sports hernia without surgery. But from reading this long thread it's very clear that ALL OF US (surgical faction and non-surgical faction) share a common need: We ALL are challenged and somewhat befuddled by the task of rehabilitation.

It's my understanding that the doctors pretty much each have their own rehab protocol, but seem to use their same protocol for every patient even though two different patients may have different injuries showing on MRI's etc. And even though one patient may have had sports hernia for 6 months and another patient has had it for 5 years, do they get the same rehab protocal from, e.g., Dr. Meyers?

I think if we all joined our minds in an atmosphere of scientific, critical thinking and discussion (rather than protocol and dogma) we would all have a better chance of successful recovery.

Tiff has already mentioned she has some questions and suggestions about the rehab protocol she was given. Tiff, I'm very interested in any suggestions or insights that might help the rest of us.

Rick, you ask some good questions that need answering. That is most un-lemming-like of you. Be prepared for a possible deluge of criticism, but please continue asking questions. As the saying goes, a good question well stated is often more important than many answers.
