About a year ago, I was workout out and slipped while doing a broad jump. It felt as if I injured the upper, inner part of my hamstring near the glute, but the pain was mild so I continued the workout. After resting for several weeks, I returned to normal activity. I began playing rugby and realized that the injury had not gone away. Quick side to side movements and sprinting gradually brought back the pain I was experiencing when I injured it originally. The pain remained mild, however, and I played the next 3 months despite pain after practices and games. The next morning, pain would disappear. Finally, I decided to go to a doctor who recommended an MRI and decided physical therapy for 3 to 6 months was the way to go. I did exactly as I was told and felt a full recovery had been made about 5 months later. I went wakeboarding at about the 6th month and afterwards realized that I had reinjured myself. This pain was constant and more like the pain I experienced when originally being injured. It also felt more towards the inside of my leg than before. After rest, a sufficient recovery was not made and I began rehabbing for adductor tendinopathy. Some progress has been made, but a full recovery feels too far off. Rugby starts up again in 6 weeks, and I will be absolutely demoralized if I am unable to play.
I have done countless hours of research, but I am not a doctor. My guess at a self diagnosis is adductor tendinopathy as I stated before. I have read about the differences between tendonitis and tendinosis and feel that tendinosis is probably a better description of my symptoms. Other conditions, such as osteitis pubis, have some similar symptoms, but I'm not sure how to determine what I have and how to get better from here. I literally spend at least 1 hour a day at least 3 times a week looking on the internet for a solution to my problem and have found things such as prolotherapy but am unsure if what I have can be fixed by prolotherapy. I just want to be able to exercise normally and eventually play rugby again. Thank you very much.
