Abstract

Abdominal and groin injuries are common problems encountered by athletes across a wide variety of sports. They range from benign but annoying, such as exercise-related transient abdominal pain (ETAP), to the activity-limiting and possibly career-ending condition of athletic hernia. This article covers ETAP, rectus abdominus injuries, osteitis pubis, athletic hernia, and abdominal/groin hernias to provide an update on the current pathophysiology and treatment of common abdominal and pelvic conditions in the athlete.
