GLSNYAn article in published in Sports Medicine by Eckberg et. al. discussed a frequent, but rather unknown phenomenon regarding groin pain: multiple injuries. The article looked at 21 patients with groin pain and found that 19 of the 21 patients had more than one injury. To the average patient, this may be surprising. Unfortunately, to those of us in the field of sports medicine and surgery, this is not surprising at all. I find myself frequently having the conversation with patients regarding multiple injuries, and the fact that the surgical fix is often not the complete answer. It is common that further treatment, mainly forms of physical therapy and re-sequencing are essential do to the fact that patients have more than one simple problem.
