					Sports Hernia Information and Treatment

<p>Sports people are used to hearing often about hernia problems. The
most common types of hernia that occur when practicing sports are
inguinal hernia and sports hernia, referred to by some doctors as
'Gilmore's groin'.</p><p>When you get inguinal hernia tissue from the
intestine pushes through the abdominal wall, because of a weakness in the
inguinal canal (the inguinal canal is the 'tube' situated between the
thigh and the abdomen, and which has the role of transmitting the testes
or the round ligament while the organism is still young).</p><p>Many
soccer players suffer from hernia because the pelvic region is put
through great torsional loads while playing soccer. A lot of older
players have either sports hernia or Gilmore's groin. The second may be
undetectable in the beginning, causing only a little pain when you get in
and out of bed, but allowing you to perform the normal daily activities.
As time passes the situation gets worse and eventually surgical
intervention is required.</p><p>Sports hernia symptoms are pain when
performing sports and when performing certain movements like suddenly
turning and turning. This pain spreads to the testicles at men.</p><p>It
is recommended not to perform any sporting activities if you are
suffering from Gilmore's groin, in the early phases of the illness,
because as it progresses, you will not be able to perform any sporting
activities because of the pain.</p><p>Sports hernia treatment can be done
with the help of a physiotherapist and it involves the strengthening of
the muscles, but also you must take a break from playing sports while the
treatment is done. In some cases surgery is needed, but successful
surgery depends on many factors and you must also carefully follow a
rehabilitation program. This program forbids sudden twisting and moving,
and concentrates on slowly improving the stability and flexibility of the
pelvic muscles. After two weeks you can start jogging, and in about six
weeks the program will be over and you can return to your normal
activities without any problem.</p><p>If you want to find more
