Wrist injuries in tennis players are, unfortunately, very common and can result from a single traumatic event or from chronic repetitive motions. Juan Martin Del Potro won the 2009 US Open only to miss most of the 2010 season due to a wrist injury.
A hernia occurs when an organ like the intestine pushes out through a hole in the muscle or tissue that is meant to contain it.
Generally, you’ll find hernias in the abdomen or groin area, and they appear as a bulge or lump. The most effective treatment of hernias is surgery – and it is one of the most common operations in Australia, with about 40,000 Australians having hernias repaired each year.
