Sportsmans Hernia

Sportsman’s hernia is probably a misnomer – it should really be called sportsman’s groin strain. The use of the word ‘hernia’ in this instance can be quite confusing as there is usually no actual hernia although the pain symptoms, especially after exercise, are very similar.

Classically, Sportsman’s groin strain is more commonly seen in younger people involved in sports involving quick pelvic twisting such as football and rugby, though runners and others sportsmen (and to a lesser extent sportswomen) can also experience problems.

Correct diagnosis of a Sportsman’s hernia is very important as the symptoms can often be treated with physiotherapy or steroid injections rather than a surgical operation.

If surgery is required, the operation follows the same pathway as an inguinal hernia repair (without the hernia).

Your Consultant Surgeon can advise you on your optimum treatment pathway for this particular ‘hernia’.
