Groin Pain

Gilmore’s Groin

The Gilmore’s Groin is also known as a Sportsman’s Hernia or athletic pubalgia, but there is no true hernia present. It is a severe musculotendinous injury of the groin, which can be successfully treated by the Marsh modification of the Gilmore Technique to restore normal anatomy.

Osteitis Pubis

Osteitis pubis is a condition caused by degeneration where the right and left pubic bones meet at the lower front part of the pelvis. It is an overuse injury commonly seen in runners and high-level footballers. This condition is closely linked with Gilmore’s Groin and is often difficult to diagnose. It can be successfully treated with injection and specific physiotherapy; surgery is rarely needed.


Adductor Tendinopathy

As part of the ASIA complex, the adductor tendon plays an important part in the groin equilibrium. Closely linked with Gilmore’s Groin and osteitis pubis, it is one of the key areas to assess and address in the management of groin pain.
