Thanks for the input guys.

I should clarify, though: a sports hernia isn't an actual hernia, in which internal organs push through a muscle tear. From the research I've done, it's a weakening of the groin/lower ab muscles where they attach to the pelvic bone, which causes chronic pain in those areas. There's no visible "bulge" like with an actual hernia. Sports hernia is very common in hockey and soccer players. John Madden, Kyle Wellwood and Daniel Briere are among those who have suffered from them. The treatment ranges from rest and physical therapy to surgery that repairs and strengthens the muscle/bone connections.

Just wondering if anyone out there has had this diagnosed and gone through any of these treatments, and how it turned out/what advice you might have. Thanks in advance.
