1. Anatomy of the Pelvis and Mechanism of Injury

In this chapter, we will review the structural anatomy of the pelvis including pertinent bones, muscles, vessels and nerves. We will also examine the inguinal canal and define its anatomical boarders. Finally, we will discuss the etiology and mechanism of injury of a sports hernia.

2. Different Hernias: Anatomy and Diagnostic Imaging

This chapter will address anatomy of a hernia in describing different hernias throughout the pelvic region. We’ll review the use of MRI and CT in ruling out or making the diagnosis of a hernia.

3. Signs, Symptoms, Examination, and Diagnosis

This chapter will discuss the sports hernia, athletic pubalgia, and adductor tear. It will describe the signs, symptoms and physical examination for each of these pathologies. In addition, new research on diagnostic testing and the use of MRI will be presented. Often thought of as a diagnosis of exclusion, the sports hernia can be treated non-operatively and post operatively.

4. Treatment and Return to Play

This final chapter will go over keys to successfully treating the sports hernia both non-operatively and post operatively. We will discuss the linkage through the core and the pelvis to lower extremities and then illustrate dynamic pelvic stability so that athletes can return to pain-free play.
