The Relationship Between the Hip Joint and Sports Hernia

hipandgroinThe relationship between the hip joint and the sports hernia exist for two reasons.

Second, since both pathologies functionally affect the other, people, with their compensatory abilities, tend to stress the other system when one is not functioning properly, ultimately causing injury in the second system.
