Yeah its the lower ab pain which is realy killing me, I can feel it right in the pubic region. This is what hurts when I try to kick.
Mine has also gotten better but I can still feel it a tiny bit. This cold weather doesnt help either. As Russell has asked did you have any treatment?
Pauly and I both went to Gary Miritis, he is in Glen Waverly at Miritis massage.
Saw Garry, usually takes between 2 - 4 treatments. I might be pain free, but its certainly not over yet. Got to get the strength back after being in bed for 6 months from depression, DVT & PE ....

Paulie, is there a name for the treatment he performed on you or was it just remedial massage on the lower ab/pubis area?
Have you tried pilates to build up your ab muscles?
Also, it's the lower ab pain that's killing me as well. It's right on and directly above the pubis and this is what hurts when I try and kick a football too.
Russell, he does a whole host of different techniques mate. Without wanting to give too much away all ill say is that it bloody hurts, but gets better with each time you visit and that the only way you will know is to go and find out!
It's a bit hard when you dont live in Victoria.
Might check out if someone does a similar technique here in Perth.
Hi Paulie, I live in Scotland, UK so there's no way I can go and see this guy! I've had a look on their website and I'll send them an email to get some info of them so as I can try and find someone who does the same treatment in Scotland.
I have just read a silly yet very interesting article which says that the pain is all in the mind. The brain has learnt that there is pain there, however even when the injury has recovered the brain continues to remember the pain. And it takes a very long time for the mind to un-learn this.
I guess this could explain why some injuries take years to recover and some dont ever recover. Is it all in the mind?
I'm a sceptic so anything is possible, would be good if this true though hehe.
russell: did physio work for 6 months, I am sure it would of helped abit, but I give all my success to this special massage.
Cannavaro: very interesting article my friend.
hey cannavaro that can be true about the pain, but not for everyone tho....I do know when I get a good straight away and the pain becames much less immediately. so for me if very real and I know it's there and can be better...
but I heard of the same thing, that can be a hell lot different to resolve I guess, v
