On the one hand you're always told to get out there on the weekends and get some exercise but now there's growing concern over sports hernia -- a number of athletes are reporting this injury.
So what is it why haven't we heard much about it -- doctor Siegel spoke to a top expert about it.
-- We injury actually is really common and it's if you -- those with the hip problems that we see.
The -- articulate -- issues.
It's probably rivals the entries and shoulder injury to setter you and understand the anatomy is really the key.
To understand it it's complex -- in the sense that.
There's a lot of muscles -- -- lots of ways that they intertwined hand it's not convention Continental's.
-- interest in what either of you doctors go out and actually talk to an expert.
We really do take out so doctor -- this is obviously a big issue you want us to learn from.
And I also gonna throw this to -- -- motivational Clearwire -- a medical school we all learn this stuff but when we come out.
-- stick to the anatomy and in -- like me are talking about different things like the physiology so here's the deal.
Doctor Myers is saying that the pelvis is a very tight compartment you dumped bones there you got nerves there.
You got muscles they're all crammed together so -- and doing sports and Europe over using a certain muscle group it's called an overuse injury you couldn't hear the muscle.
If you tear in the muscle you might not know you try physical therapy you try heat.
You try rescue try anti inflammatory as it doesn't work you get worse and worse and worse that's what happened Adrian Peterson who who.
The NFL player that's what happened Donovan McNabb we operated on but that's also what happens to high school students and college students.
And they don't know what to do about this MRI scans show that there are terrorist.
The concept sports hernia Jamie is a misnomer because we used to think that it was about wall breaking through the muscle which is what a -- is a hernia is the bowel.
Breaking through the muscle but it most of these injuries it's a tear in the muscle and the -- has nothing to do with it.
So if it doesn't get better doctor Myers and other doctors are operating using -- -- -- school.
And he's claiming about a -- in the 95% improvement right now wanted to throw this to doctor how bloody -- -- who also has the same issue which he does a very elegant procedure.
You know that it's it's the personalized my approach that matters.
We were talking about before robotics you would operate laparoscopic -- -- you do get out of the hospital faster but if it's a terror which I didn't know that there was a different kind of hernia.
How do you repair it.
Well what do what they're Americans do compared to Europeans is that we use a lot of match and what parity is really protrude -- -- vision.
And -- break in the ring in the England -- canal so you basically put a curtain to block the bowels from coming out.
That's parity you can examine that clinically to find out exactly where they -- heard is this is a different type of -- this is almost like this with a hernia.
As a result of just -- terror of playing football hockey.
And soccer players when you twist really fast he can -- muscle and it becomes like almost -- -- her radiation.
-- a lot of chairman surges are doing this kind of repair but they're not using managed to America's have laparoscopic do we paraffin.
And I think a lot of times we dressed and also ice pack etc.
these can -- -- process recover on its own.
But certainly did -- to -- one of expert who does an amazing job and he's absolutely right.
-- pelvic area and the whole anatomy there is very very complex what's interest in his every time I do these robotic.
Prostate surgeries we will see -- -- very clearly and more more surges are going to do this robotic thing that's so interesting arts and now we know another hernia type to look for --
