Sports Hernia is a relatively common condition usually affecting many athletes.
The area where the abdomens are born and the adductors come up is almost the same.
So, an abdominal injury directly affects the adductors and vice versa, of course.
Sports Hernia may occur either from an acute or a chronic injury.
In most cases, the beginning of the symptoms is slow. Symptoms show up after repeated fatigue or a long period of intense physical exercise-training or racing.
Symptoms occur in the origin of the adductor or in the insertion of the rectal abdomen (or both at the same time) usually on either side – rarely bilaterally.
Symptoms may include:
- Pain in the lower abdomen
- Groin pain
- A feeling like a heavy weight has been placed upon the area of the abdominal muscles and the adducting muscles
Patients complain that the pain is bigger with particular speed movements, bending or twisting their core. The symptoms may get worse during coughing or sneezing.
