A discussion on Osteitis pubis

Remember Laxmipathy Balaji the Indian bowler in cricket. His carrier was hit by Osteitis pubis. So lets us discus what is it.

Osteitis pubis is a painful, chronic syndrome that affects the symphysis pubis, adductor and abdominal muscles, and surrounding fascia.

If misdiagnosed or mismanaged, osteitis pubis can run a prolonged and disabling course.

The important point to remember is that the abdominal and adductor muscles have attachments to the symphysis pubis but act antagonistically to each other, predisposing the symphysis pubis to mechanical traction microtrauma and resulting in osteitis pubis.

Advices for sports physios: emphasize on proper worm ups, stretching and core stability.
