Many people are subjected to hernia surgeries for groin pain, which has nothing to do with a hernia! Patients come to us after a hernia surgery failed to "cure" them of their groin pain. Remember, surgery generally does not cure injuries. To "cure" means that you are stimulating the body to repair the area. There is only one method to do this for a long-standing injury: Prolotherapy. Most orthopedists do not routinely examine the pubic symphysis area because it means making the patients drop their drawers and palpating them in the groin area. The pubic symphysis is the front of the pelvis joint. It is connected together by a fibrocartilagenous disc, which is often injured. Injuries to this area are most often caused by slipping or falling, when the leg is suddenly pulled out from underneath. Swimmers who do the breast stroke are also vulnerable to injury in this area. Prolotherapy is extremely effective in strengthening the public symphysis and relieving chronic groin pain in this area. This is one of the most overlooked injuries and one of the most easily treated by Prolotherapy.
PUBIC SYMPHYSIS LAXITY
A COMMON SOURCE OF ABDOMINAL MUSCLE PAIN
A patient had had every abdominal xray/scan/medication one could think of, but still had abdominal pain. They were not particularly tender in the abdomen but did had tenderness over the pubic symphysis.
Their abdominal pain did seem to occur when they were doing a lot of exercise, but no one really thought about the connection. Well, the real connection is the one between the rectus abdominis and the pubic bones. The abdominal muscles attach to the pubic bone and when the pubic bone connection (via the pubic symphysis) is not stable, it means the abdominal muscles are contracting against a non-stable base. The end result dull, non-descript abdominal pain.
Prolotherapy to the pubic symphysis caused the area to become stable. Then when the patient contracted their abdominal muscles, there would be no pain because muscle contaction would be normal. Do you or a friend have abdominal pain that is not resolving, consider an evaluation by a doctor familiar with Prolotherapy
