    You're in good company, even the doctors and physios can't consistently manage this condition, despite the training & knowledge.

    Unfortunately the pubic symphysis in one of the integral structures that (among other functions including allowing pelvic distortion during childbirth) provide some shock absorbing capacity to the pelvic ring during gait, running and kicking activities. However, once inflamed, it is very difficult to rest the pubic symphysis, as it's stressed even during normal gait (and compounded by higher impact activities). Moreover, true osteitis pubis is ideally treated early (analgesics, anti-inflams and managing physical workloads - the latter is particularly non-conducive for elite athletes) - the longer it is neglected the harder it is to treat.

    If there is to be a positive, it might be that vague central pelvic symptoms were often diagnosed as OP when it was a particularly fashionable diagnosis, and there was a high spate of them. I suspect that many were perhaps not. However, over recent years, there have been fewer incidents of OP (which I believe is potentially attributable to more accurate diagnosis - with imaging and symptom interpretation).

    Suffice to say a poorly manage OP can be career ending. Even a well managed case of OP can take months to recover (depending on severity, acuteness and effectiveness of rehab of course). But OP management of elite athletes has certainly improved IMO (for what that's worth).

    Hopefully, if it is OP, they have got onto it early for a better outcome.

    Don't knock philosophy! I don't have a PhD (in philosophy or any other discipline), but I did study quite a few subjects at uni. You have to read heaps to avoid blathering nonsense or just repeating stuff that has already been said better elsewhere....ok, so maybe it did prepare me well for the internet.

    Thanks for the info. Very interesting!

    Mate your medical opinion is immeasurable. We are lucky you have you on this site and I appreciate your input. Thanks Doc

    Sorry, gotta pull you up there. Not a doc ('though there is at least one who posts here) ... just a physio I'm afraid

    Technically a PhD is in philosophy regardless of the discipline in which it is obtained (except the type that Eddie was gifted ... that's an "honorary" one)

    As the eminent 'Dr' Alan Harper once said "Nonetheless, I am a healer"

    I was hoping the McGuire pic was photoshopped.
    Imagine how the PhD's who actually earned the honorific feel about that!

    Not photoshopped, and the discussion of honorary doctorates is really for another forum. There are an abundance of lengthy threads on this topic. But 3-10 years of hard, poorly paid slog & stress might not be impressed by getting one for simply doing ones job. Some PhD graduates choose not to use the title. Fortunately many institutions decree that an honorary doctorate does not entitle the title of Dr to be used.

    Back on topic

    I've been trying to predict what will be announced at 6:25 tonight, and I really have no idea.

    It won't be Tippett, you can't play a guy who came off at half time last week injured and hasn't played a full game for 6-7 weeks. Horse just giving the media something to write.

    Either no changes or Dawson in for someone.

    Reid does so many jobs for the Swans: including rucking and dropping back into defence for last 5 mins, he'll be difficult to replace.

    I really hope Sinkers doesn't reappear. Maybe Towers can do all the pinch hitting in the ruck?

    I really would like to see Dawson this week if Reid or Gaz are injured.
