For sports enthusiasts, pubic-related groin pain (formerly osteitis pubis) can pose a challenge, especially in activities like AFL, soccer, and netball.
What contributes to it? Pelvic instability, particularly at the pubic symphysis, can lead to tissue damage and inflammation, exacerbated by asymmetrical loads during running or kicking. Some other common contributing factors to this presentation include poor lumbopelvic control and strength, leading to an increased risk of injury over time. Another factor to consider is an increase in training load and intensity as preseason begins.
How to stay in the game? Early assessment by our musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapists is crucial. They’ll analyse and correct biomechanical irregularities in your lumbopelvic and lower limb regions, preventing the condition from becoming chronic.
Rehabilitation essentials: Activity modification, guided by evidence-based practice, is a key component of our program. We tailor an individualised rehabilitation plan addressing factors like strength deficits, lumbopelvic control, and load management.
Pro Physio SA’s musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapists, after a comprehensive assessment, guide you through evidence-based treatments, including individualised exercise prescription, massage and other manual therapy techniques.
