Sports Hernia is an injury characterized by pain in the groin, lower abdomen, and sometimes, the inner thigh, or “adductor region.” It usually occurs in athletes, but this is not always the case. The age range for a sports hernia is variable, but usually presents in people during high school or college, with a high frequency in professional athletes during their sports careers. There is no age limit to a sports hernia, however, and it should be attended to by a professional.
Many demands are placed on your spine. It holds up your head, shoulders, and upper body, it gives you support to stand up straight, gives you flexibility to bend and twist, and it also protects your spinal cord. Your spine is made up of three segments; the cervical spine, thoracic spine, and lumbar spine. Your neck and back are made up of small bones, called vertebrae, which are stacked on top of one another with muscles, ligaments, nerves, and disks as additional parts of your spine. Musculoskeletal examination and imaging modalities allow our team to address your spinal issues.
