The Lloyd Release Procedure: effective treatment of groin pain in athletes
Groin pain is a commonly seen complaint in amateur and
professional athletes, often, but not exclusively, occurring in football, rugby
and hockey players. This type of pain is sometimes diagnosed as
sportsman's hernia and patients may undergo hernia surgery, with highly
variable results. In fact, most athletes complaining of groin pain do not
have a hernia at all, and it has become apparent that the cause of the pain in
these cases is due to tension in the ligaments as a result of recurrent strain.
Following extensive anatomical research, Mr Lloyd has
developed a revolutionary new treatment for groin pain known as the Lloyd Release Procedure. The
inflamed and tense ligaments responsible for the pain are released
laparoscopically and patients are encouraged to mobilise quickly, returning to
light training within days and normal training within weeks.
Mr Lloyd has treated more than 1000 male and female athletes
with a very high success rate (97% of patients returning to their sport within
4 weeks). The procedure is suitable both for those with newly diagnosed
groin strain and those who have already had conventional groin surgery.
