Sarich recovering from injury common to Aussie rules players

Not surprising at all to hear. The guy is a warrior.

The question remains whether Sarich could have suited up even if the Flames had advanced to the post-season and shocked the world by winning a round or two.

True to form, Sarich played hurt for much of the 2010/11 season without breathing a word about it to the media.

Complaining just isnt his style.

I had an injury that was bugging me, he said, in typical understated fashion. Ive just been letting it rest.

Upper body? Lower body? Middle body?

Its kind of near my abs, he said. Its called osteitis pubis.

You can look it up.

Osteitis pubis, in simple terms, is inflammation of the pelvic joint between the two ends of the pubic bone. Especially common in soccer and Australian rules football, the condition causes intense groin pain.

The trouble began for Sarich around Christmas. At first he suspected a groin pull. Maybe even a sports hernia. Then came the diagnosis of osteitis pubis.

Come February, he took a cortisone shot in search of relief.

For a month there, I felt unbelievable, he said. And then it wore off. I was just eating anti-inflammatories like they were going out of style.
