Treatment of Core Muscle Injury (Don’t Call it Sports Hernia)

These days, whenever ESPN injury analyst Stephania Bell meets an elite athlete who has undergone surgery to perform core muscle repair, she has a good idea about who might have performed the procedure.

Dr William Meyers has been at the forefront of core muscle injury treatment dating back to the late 1980s, when he pioneered efforts to diagnose and treat this problem that somehow gained popular awareness under a different and misleading name: sports hernia.

In this episode of Move Forward Radio, Dr Meyers and Stephania provide a fascinating overview of this still sometimes hard to diagnose problem that can hinder an athlete’s power and explosiveness.
