An Athlete and Physio’s Experience with a Hernia Surgery.

As most of you know, I am a physiotherapist as well as an elite athlete. In 2018 I had a sportsman’s hernia which required surgery. This year in January it returned, and I am due to have surgery again in December. After my surgery on the 16th of December, I will be doing a day to day vlog of my rehab to show you guys how I will get myself back into training.

I have made a PowerPoint video that goes through exactly what a “sportsman’s hernia” means (as the term is used for different conditions and can be misleading), describes the surgery process, how to rehab after surgery, and how to know if you might have a hernia. If you suffer from groin pain this may be of interest to you!

There are a few mistakes in the video. When I say ‘adductor canal’, I actually mean ‘ingiunal canal’. Also the BMJ stands for British Medical Journal, not British Media Journal!

Remember to check out my Instagram to see my progression post surgery.
