Managing the Grumbling Groin: A Novel Approach

Martin J. Matthews, MPhil, Leanne Sawle, Jennifer Freeman, Jon Marsden,



Groin and other forms of pelvic pain can be notoriously difficult to manage. This article highlights some of these problems, and discusses the use of a novel management tool which may aid in the management of such dysfunction. Dynamic elastomeric fabric orthoses (DEFOs) are a relatively new approach to orthotics. This concept in orthotic management will be introduced and discussed as a novel approach to support the physiotherapeutic rehabilitation of athletic groin and pelvic pain, building upon the role of pelvic belts.
