About The Webinar

The terms ‘Groin injury’, ‘Gilmore’s groin’ and ‘Sportsman’s hernia’ are often used to describe a multitude of pelvic and groin injuries and cover a wide variety of injury scenarios for both patient and medical personnel. To this end the diagnostic term of inguinal disruption is a more correct and all encompassing definition of the aforementioned ‘injuries’ (Sheen et, 2013 BJSM). In the world of professional sport the pressure to win is so intense that often abdominal wall surgery may be necessary immediately after diagnosis. In the undiagnosed or amateur player rest, rehabilitation and a period of frustration may be the only immediate option. Full functional recovery is possible within a 2-6 week time period with the appropriate surgery and rehabilitation programme.

The aim of this webinar is to assist in the diagnosis, rehabilitation and prevention, if possible, of acute and chronic pelvic and groin injury, with an emphasis on active rehabilitation for both patient and therapist
