Also known as "athletic pubalgia", a sports hernia occurs when there is a weakening of the muscles or tendons of the lower abdominal wall. It is not a true, or "inguinal hernia" as there is no bulge or protrusion through the inguinal canal.

Diagnosis is often very difficult, and many doctors will initial diagnose the patient with a pulled muscle or sprain. Ultra sound and MRI are most effective to detect a tear, although sometimes it still goes undetected.

The only effective method of treatment is surgery, though unfortunately after years of countless operations, it is considered "experimental" by many insurance companies.
If someones had a sports hernia that means that they were going "balls to the wall" and are super hardcore!
