Gilmore's Groin Injury

Gilmore's Groin is a fairly common injury in kicking sports such as soccer, gaelic football and rugby. This condition is named after Jerry Gilmore, the London surgeon who first recognised this syndrome in 1980. The condition is also known as a Sports Hernia, but Gilmore's Groin is a more apt title because, strictly speaking, there is no true herniation.

Conservative treatment involves stabilising and strengthening the muscles of the pelvic region, which may allow a continuation of sports activities for a short period; although this is a stop gap at best. Usually, there comes a time when the person can no longer continue because sports performance becomes so impaired. Ultimately a surgical approach and hernia repair is usually required.

Common Gilmore's Groin signs & symptoms:

  • Abdominal and groin pain following sport that gets progressively worse.
  • Pain typically reproduced with coughing and sneezing.
  • Groin pain when squeezing the legs together.
