What causes a sports hernia?
When weight lifting or exercising, it’s vital to know your limits. Lifting too much weight without some type of support or brace can be detrimental to tendons around your obliques and pubic bone. Exercising can include any form of yoga, lifting, cardio, and sport. Be mindful of the pressure you place on your abdominal muscles.
A sports hernia, technically not being an actual hernia, can usually be treated without any kind of surgery. After being diagnosed by a specialist, it is likely that you will be admitted into rehab and given a consistent system to improve and heal the damaged muscles.
