WHAT IS OSTEITIS PUBIS
Osteitis Pubis or OP is a painful inflammation of the bone of the pubic area and can happen when you work out too hard too soon, or when the muscles of the core, hip and groin are too weak.
HOW TO TREAT OSTEITIS PUBIS
If you play a kicking sport, or a game that has a rapid change in direction or has stop ,start activity ,then you are a chance to get osteitis pubis (OP) at some time in your career.
If you do sustain an osteitis pubis injury, the recovery time can be significant – around 12-20 weeks depending on the severity. Osteitis pubis treatment will require the help of a health professional.
