Sports hernia occurs when the muscles in the groin tear. This type of hernia occurs mainly in people who play ice hockey, soccer, or tennis, which causes an individual to have intense twisting movements and sudden change of direction. The groin pain may reach into the genital area, which can linger for weeks or months. Sports hernia may also results from overuse of groin muscles, which causes stress on the inguinal wall. Generally, any activity that causes increase in pressure in the abdomen can cause a sports hernia. Without treatment, sports hernia may become chronic, disabling pain that prevents an individual from resuming sports activities.
