Professional Core Muscle Injury Treatment

A core injury refers to an injury to any one of the skeletal muscle structures located between the chest and the mid-thigh, with a muscle strain being the most common. You may have heard one of these injuries referred to as a “sports hernia” or “athletic pubalgia.” 

The muscle(s) that are most commonly involved in a core injury are the muscles that attach to the pubic bone, which may include muscles from the trunk, thigh, or groin regions. A single muscle may be injured; however, it is very common for several groups of muscles, their tendons, and the pubic bone to all be irritated with this type of injury. If you are suffering from an injury of this nature, seeking professional treatment is advised.

Common Sports Core Injuries

Some common core injuries that athletes may suffer from include, but are not limited to the following:

Adductor/groin strain

The adductors are a group of muscles located on the inside of the hip/thigh. These muscles are typically strained or injured from high-speed or high-force movements such as running, cutting, or lifting.

Rib Fractures

The rib cage consists of 12 pairs of ribs which serve to safeguard our vital organs – forming a protective “cage” for our organs. In the right set of circumstances, high force delivered to the rib cage could result in a rib fracture.

Abdominal strain 

The abdominals are a group of muscles located on the frontside of the trunk. These muscles are typically strained or injured from high-speed, forceful rotational movements such as a baseball pitch or a tennis serve.

Hip flexor strain 

The hip flexors are a group of muscles located on the frontside of the hip/thigh. These muscles are typically strained or injured with high-speed movements such as sprinting, kicking, or changing directions.
