About The Webinar

The terms 'groin injury’ and ‘sportsman’s hernia,’ in sports such as soccer and rugby, cover a multitude of anatomical injury scenarios from umbilicus to upper one third of the femur for both the player and medical staff, and accounts for 10-15% of all soccer related injuries. Far greater diagnostic terminology needs to be applied to such injuries with an understanding of the role the acute and chronic nature of the injury plays in the rehabilitation process. In many cases the subjective and objective findings of clinical assessment do not correlate with radiographic and imaging findings, so the clinician needs to appreciate the total injury picture that is painted on assessment. Players switch to submaximal instep kicking to avoid the pain, allowing them to continue playing until such levels increase that they eventually must stop training or playing. In the undiagnosed or amateur player rest, rehabilitation and a period of frustration may be the only immediate option. However, a full functional recovery is possible within 4-6 weeks post-surgery with the appropriate rehabilitation and load management programme.
