pubalgia

pubalgia

(pyu'bal-ja)
Pain arising from the groin or pubic symphysis. Diagnosis is made after ruling out the presence of an inguinal hernia.

Etiology

Symptoms are often secondary to strain of the muscles that attach in the area (e.g., rectus abdominis, iliopsoas, adductor longus, or rectus femoris), inflammation in the urogenital system (e.g., urethritis, epididymitis), inflammation of the hip (e.g., bursitis, arthritis), or weaknesses in the abdominal wall.

athletic pubalgia

Musculoskeletal pain, typically arising from the pubic symphysis, lower abdominal muscles, or the inguinal region of young athletes in whom an inguinal hernia is not present. Synonym: Gilmore's groin; groin disruption; sports hernia.

Etiology

Inflammation and tears in the local muscles or abdominal wall may result from repetitive overuse of movements (e.g., kicking, jumping, and sudden change of direction) that create shear forces across the pubic symphysis or inguinal ligament.
