The following is an example rehabilitation program for a professional footballer who has undergone surgical repair of a torn conjoined tendon and oblique aponeuroses 'Gilmores Groin'.

The principle behind the exercises is that if certain specific muscles can be recruited or contracted, the trunk and pelvis will have much better support. This helps to counteract the shearing forces during sport, which can lead to overuse conditions such as Gilmore's Groin.

In order to understand how these exercises are effective it is necessary to have a brief introduction to how the trunk is supported by muscles. The first muscle we are concerned with is called Transversus Abdominus. This muscle arises from the middle of the tummy and goes right around the midriff, attaching itself to the spine.

Anatomy of the Tranversus muscle   Anatomy of the Multifidus muscle

The Transversus Abdominus muscle acts as a natural corset and provides stability for the trunk and pelvis.

The second muscle involved in this exercise programme is the Multifidus. This muscle lies deep in the spine and attaches in between each vertebra. When it contracts it increases the stability of the spinal column.

Usually, if you can contract the Transversus Abdominus muscle, the Multifidus muscle is also contracted automatically. This improves spinal stability and can relieve back pain. If these deep muscles can not be contracted and remain weak, the larger muscles such as the Rectus Abdominis, internal and external Obliques, Latissimus Dorsi and Quadratus Lumborum all over work and are at higher risk of injury.
