Pouliot was on the shelf with what Quinn described as a "Pubis thing". It was actually Osteitis pubis or an Inflammation of the pubic joint. More information below the jump.
The inflammation is a warning that the training is too strenuous, and that if the load is not reduced a chronic condition with a significantly longer rehabilitation period may follow. Inflammation of the pubic joint is often preceded by long-term inflammation of the abdominal muscle fastening on the pubic bone and inflammation of the adductor muscle of the thigh. Inflammation of the pubic joint (osteitis pubis) is especially seen in sports characterised by activity with sprinting with sudden changes of direction (soccer, ice hockey).
Pain around the pubic bone, the abdominal muscle fastening and in the groin.
Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. The old standard.
One wonders, however, about the comfort level of such treatment on this type of injury.
