The muscles surrounding the abdomen , groin and pelvis are strong and provide stability for your limbs to move freely. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is thought to be rare and when it does occur it’s usually due to hormonal changes during pregnancy or a fall onto your pelvis. Muscular strains of the groin and hernias often occur during sports or with heavy physical activity. Muscular strains are often minor and can be managed using the principles of POLICE under the guidance of a physiotherapist. Occasionally, more severe trauma can occur in the form of Gilmore’s groin, inguinal hernias or fractures. If you have had a traumatic injury and are unable to weight bear, or have a visible bulge in your abdomen or groin you must seek urgent medical assessment.
