The true abnormality of a sports hernia is thought to be a weakening or defect of the soft tissues such as the abdominal muscle fascia as they insert on the pubic bone of the pelvis. This weakening can be associated with pain along the pubic bone termed “athletic pubalgia”. Unlike other medical hernias, there is not typically a frank tissue opening with the associated bulge or passage of other organs or tissues.
Non surgical treatment
These muscles work together to help flex the hip, and to provide stability for the lower extremity.The most common cause of hip flexor injury is acute trauma. You may experience one specific instance when you felt your hip flexor pull. This may have been when you broke into a sprint, made a cut, or kicked a ball. Tight muscles and poor flexibility will contribute to hip flexor injury. When muscles are tight, there is an increased amount of tension on the tissues. When this increased tension is added to by an explosive movement, injury can occur. Hip flexor injury is very common in sports, especially soccer, football, and running. Caused by explosive movements, injury to these muscles can be painful, and cause all kinds of problems.
Muscle tightness is the most common cause of bursitis. The Iliotibial Band, or IT Band is a big culprit in trochanteric bursitis. The IT band runs along the outside of the hip, and the tendon actually moves over the greater trochanter everytime you lift your knee and flex your hip.Think about how many times you do this every time you play basketball, or go for a run. If the IT Band is tight, this increased friction will irritate the bursa, and may cause pain over time.Another cause is direct injury to the outside of the hip.
The most common cause of this injury is tightness of the piriformis muscle. Because of the close proximity of the sciatic nerve, tightness of the muscle can cause irritation and increased compression of the nerve, resulting in pain, numbness, and tingling. These symptoms are increased with activities, especially those that involve contraction of the muscles. They may also be increased by sitting for long periods of time. TreatmentWhether you are suffering from true piriformis problems, with numbness and tingling, or you are simply having hip pain in the back of your hip, stretching of the piriformis muscle can help reduce your pain. Piriformis stretching can effectively reduce the tension on the muscle and reduce the irritation of the nerve.
One of the biggest culprits for referring pain to the hip is the SI joint in the lower back. The SI joint is where your pelvis meets your sacrum. This joint can often be a problem with athletes, especially if they have core weakness or are overtraining. Pain that comes on gradually, or moves around from the front, back, and side may be referred pain.
Thanks to recent medical advances, patients with ongoing hip pain who don’t require a hip replacement may now be treated with minimally invasive surgery. The procedure, called hip arthroscopy, allows surgeons to diagnose and repair most injuries through tiny incisions in the hip instead of larger incisions like those needed for replacements. This less invasive approach usually means less pain and a quicker recovery for the patient.
These days, people are staying active until much later in their lives, so it’s important to get them back on their feet and doing what they love quickly and with the smallest amount of pain possible,” said Dr. [insert doctor’s name here]. “In many cases, hip arthroscopy does this and more, because it’s treating an injury and at the same time diminishing the risk of arthritis and perhaps delaying the need for a hip replacement.”
Loss of femoro head offsetCrossover – retroversionA patient’s history will generally involve complaints of hip pain (front, side, or back) and loss of hip motion. The physical exam will generally confirm the patient’s history and eliminate other causes of hip pain.
What are the central, peripheral, and lateral compartments of the hip?During a hip arthroscopy, the surgeon should visualize two compartments or spaces of the hip joint. The first space is the central compartment. The central compartment is composed of the surfaces of the ball (femoral head) and the socket (acetabulum) as well as the soft tissues (i.e., labrum). Procedures performed within the central compartment include treatment of the cartilage and labrum. The peripheral compartment is the remainder of the hip joint and refers to the area along the junction of the femoral head (ball) and femoral neck. Procedures performed within the peripheral compartment include treatment of bone spurs and the joint capsule. Both the central and peripheral compartments are within the hip joint capsule making them accessible with the arthroscope. The lateral or peritrochanteric compartment lies outside of the hip joint. The surgeon may enter the lateral compartment with the arthroscope to evaluate and treat disorders such as hip muscle/tendon tears, snapping hips, and hip inflammation (bursitis).
Recovery time from most FAI surgical procedures is about 4 months to full, unrestricted activity. Your postoperative activity level will depend on your surgeon’s recommendation, the type of surgery performed, and the condition of the hip joint at the time of surgery. Revision FAI surgery may involve a significantly longer recovery.
