A groin strain involves pulling or tearing the muscles of your groin and thigh and are usually related to activities such as sports and athletic events. Groin strains can occur from a one off injury or ongoing repetitive stress over a given period of time. Seeking care from an experienced chiropractor or physiotherapist is important with groin strains as they can develop into a persistent, ongoing issue. Our chiropractors and physiotherapists at Sydney Spine & Sports Centre (S3C) are passionate about fixing groin pain and restoring groin function.
A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through a muscle or tissue that holds it in place. Theses are most common in the abdominal area, and are not life threating. If left untreated the hole can become bigger and more problematic. Surgical treatment is typically necessary for problematic hernias for long term relief. Hernias should be identified early. Sydney Spine & Sports Centre (S3C) is a chiropractic and physiotherapy centre of excellence located in Balmain and Dee Why.
A sports hernia is also known as a Gilmore’s groin, sportmans hernia, slap shot gut and athletic pubalgia. The condition is named after Jerry Gilmore, a surgeon that first identified the syndrome in 1980. Gilmore’s groin is damage to the tissue that surrounds the inguinal canal. If you are experiencing ongoing groin pain it’s a good idea to visit one of our chiropractors or physiotherapists so an accurate diagnosis can be made.
Hip bursitis is also called trochanteric bursitis. Hip bursitis is caused by inflammation in the bursae of the hip. This is typically caused by overuse and this implies that there is either abnormal forces going through the hips or too much normal forces going through the hip. Changes in training volume or the type of training are common causes. Our chiropractors and physiotherapists see many cases of hip bursitis and are very experienced in treating it.
