Abstract

Core muscle injury is a common but difficult problem to treat. Although it can affect all individuals, it is most commonly seen in male athletes in cutting, twisting, pivoting, and explosive sports. Owing to the high association of femoroacetabular impingement, we believe these individuals are best treated with a multidisciplinary approach involving both orthopedic and general surgeons. Conservative treatment should be the first step in management. When conservative means are unsuccessful, operative intervention to correct all the pathologic issues around the pubis can have extremely high success rates.
