Abstract

Sports hernia is a non-anatomic, non-diagnostic term that has been attributed to many different causes of groin pain.» Sports hernia is better described as pain localized anatomically to the inguinal region of an athlete without an actual hernia.» Nonoperative management including core stability while avoiding extreme hip range of motion should be attempted for at least 2 months prior to any operative intervention.» Associated pathology such as femoroacetabular impingement or adductor tear should be addressed.» If a sports hernia is not responsive to rehabilitation, referral to a general surgeon is appropriate.
