Hi im a 15 year old male and have been suffering from left leg groin pain for about a year now. Where to start...
It started a year ago while playing hockey. At first i felt a clicking/popping in my left hip/groin, but not much pain. Gradually as i kept skating the pain worsened and there was less popping but just more pain inn the groin. After a while as i kept playing there was more pain and specific movements would make it pop. Running did not hurt at all but lifting up my knee and moving it to the outside of my body hurt. I went to a physio therapist for about 3 weeks and he cleared me to play, and said the popping i felt must just be some thing i think i am feeling but am actually not. So i go back to playing but there is still the pain and popping. So the whole year i was in and out with the injury, and then in mid january it started to feel a bit better and i played until may although i took ibuprofen lots and apllied ice after every ice time and rubbed heat on before all ice times. This seemed to help a bit. So i took a complete break from hockey for all of may until starting to work out again in mid june. By this time i thought everything was comletely healed as i had no pain while running or working out, and i had full range of motion in my leg with no pain, although there was still popping in the groin, but the poping did not hurt. So i started skating again in mid july and after a few skates the groin was getting a bit sore so i started taking ibuprofen again and this seemed to help, and i did not ice after ce times or apply heat bfore. So i did this skating 4 times a week until about aug 10. From aug 10 on my groin started feeling worse and worse from skating and it now hurts just lifting up my knee and holding it in position. Also there is a certain tendon or organ or something im not sure of that sort of sticks out in my groin. This doesnt hurt at all as it is more to the right of the actaul painful spot. Could this be a hernia of some sort, as ive been to a physio therapist who says it isnt a hernia but im not so sure. Any help on what i should do with this injury and why it is not going away would be very helpful. Thanks

  • sportsmans hernia possible. Gilmores groin, FAI and labrum tears are all a worthy "google". Mike who has three of these.
