PODCAST: Groin pain in athletes

For this episode, we welcome the highly experienced and respected Dr Nick Brasher. Nick is the owner and principal osteopath at Peak Osteopathy in Hawthorn. For the past 14 years, Nick has also worked as an osteopath with the Western Bulldogs and Collingwood AFL teams.

The focus for this episode is athletic groin pain. Nick draws on his experience working in elite sport and private practice to help us simplify and streamline our approach to this often complex presentation.

Nick discusses:

  • Important points to cover in our history taking

  • Approach to assessment: palpation, pain provocation, orthopaedic testing, muscle and movement assessment

  • The role of movement, co-ordination and biomechanics failures

  • Creating and reaching short and long term goals

  • The role of manual therapy

  • Approach to rehabilitation

  • Home management, taping and belts

  • Return to sport 

This podcast is also available via Spotify, AmazonGoogle and Apple.
