RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
I've suffered with this the past year. Many of the same symptoms as a lot of you including it hurts when I sneeze. I don't feel it when I cough though. Sleeping was tough as I would often wake up in agony.
Anyways, a buddy of mine showed me a different groin that has totally helped. I still have some pain but it's no where near as bad and it usually gets worse when I haven't done the stretch for a while. It might be worth while for some of you to try.
Bascially it's like your normal standing groin stretch where your legs are spread further than shoulder width apart and you lean towards one side by bending that knee. Now, turn your foot on the bent leg so that it is facing the same direction as the foot on the leg that is not bent. (Does this make sense so far, not easy to explain!)
Then bring the rear leg knee close to the ground and really work the stretch. It will probably hurt the first few times you do it but I swear this helped me. I was doing it after every couple of runs for a few weeks but have found I don't need it as much now. You can increase the stretch by forcing the knee not close to the ground outwards. Hope that helps a few of you.
