Sports Hernia

A sports hernia, also known as athletic pubalgia, is a strain or tear of the soft tissues in the lower abdomen or groin area. It commonly affects high-level male athletes who participate in sports that involve planting the feet and twisting intensely, such as ice hockey, soccer, wrestling, football and rugby. Over time, a sports hernia can lead to an inguinal hernia, where the abdominal organs press against the weakened tissues to form a visible bulge.

If you suspect you have a hernia, or you have a protruding bulge near the groin or abdomen, it is important to seek immediate evaluation at the Los Angeles Hernia Center. Untreated hernias can lead to irreversible damage and the development of life-threatening complications, so time is of the essence.
