 Ostitis Pubis

Ostitis Pubis is inflammation of the joint where the pubic bone meets at the front. Groin pain can radiate around the groin but will be significant at point in the middle of the groin at the front. It is caused mainly by overuse or it can be caused as a result of direct impact.

Symptoms

      Groin pain when running, doing sit-ups and squatting.

      Groin pain may develop gradually and be mistaken for a muscle strain.

      In bad cases you may walk with a waddling gait.

What can the athlete do about it?

See a sport specialist at A+ clinic to confirm diagnosis and rule out a hernia.

  Rest is unfortunately the only form of treatment for this groin pain injury.

  In most cases you will rest for only 3 to 5 days but bad ones might require 3 months of complete rest.

  See a sports injury specialist at A+ clinic professional who can advise on rehabilitation.

What can a sports injury specialist or doctor do?

Prescribe anti-inflammatory medication e.g. ibuprofen. Always consult a Doctor before taking any medication.

 Advise rest for 3 days to 3 months depending on how bad it is.

 Prescribe a rehabilitation programme such as the one below.

Rehabilitation of Ostitis Pubis

 Day 1-3: Rest, use cold therapy, Ultrasound, Anti-inflammatory medication (e.g. ibuprofen)

 Day 3-5: Adductor stretching if it is not painful. Hold for 30 sec's, repeat 5 times   a day.

 Day 5 onwards: If it is not painful, stomach crunches (3 sets of 10 reps a day), dorsal raises (3 sets of 10 per day), adductor exercises, abductor exercises, hip flexor exercises also 3 sets of 10 per day. Gradually start doing more sports specific training.

If in doubt get advice from a sports injury specialist or medical professional as ostitis pubis can take months to recover sometimes.
