Osteitis Pubis Physiotherapy | Move Physiotherapy Fremantle
Osteitis Pubis is a common cause of groin pain experienced in football and soccer players. It is an overuse injury thought to be caused by irritation of the pubic symphysis at the front of the pelvis. It commonly occurs when your sport requires rapid change directions when combined with poor biomechanics, instability and weakness around the pelvis.
Athletes often describe a loss of power in the lower limbs, especially with changes in direction. It is an inflammatory presentation which often improves with a period of rest, however with improper rehabilitation, symptoms often quickly resurface when sport has been resumed.
As this injury is characterised by instability around the pelvis, it is common for these athletes to have previous groin or lower back injuries prior to being diagnosed with osteitis pubis.
