Sports Hernia Treatment, Causes & Symptoms in Toronto

What are Sports Hernias?

sports herniaA sports hernia is a tear or a strain in one of the soft tissues in the groin or the lower abdomen area. The soft tissues affected in the sports hernias include ligaments, tendons, and muscles. It is also known as athletic pubalgia.

A sports hernia is common among athletes who play sports such as football and ice hockey or participate in wrestling. If not treated in a timely manner, it can lead to chronic pain that can prevent you from resuming your sports activities.

Some of the common symptoms of sports hernia include:

  • Severe and sudden pain in the groin or lower abdomen at the time of the injury
  • The pain goes away with rest but returns when the physical activity starts again
  • The pain felt in the groin or the lower abdomen area and is usually unilateral rather than on both sides.

Physiotherapy plays a major role in the treatment of sports hernia. A physiotherapist helps to manage pain and educates patient about movements to avoid. The program is usually focused on increasing the strength of the muscle and supportive structures through stabilization exercises.
