A core muscle injury, commonly called a “sports hernia,” is the result of tears or weakening to the deep layers of tissue in the abdominal wall. This is usually the result of stress from repetitive twisting, kicking, and turning at high speeds. A hernia can also be caused by trauma such as a motor vehicle accident or falls. In severe cases, surgery may be required.
