Over training should be avoided, particularly by those who participate in long or repetitive kicking sports. Core Strength and Core Stability exercises can improve muscle function across the trunk and pelvis. Core strength exercises on a mat using a Swiss Ball and Resistance Bands are ideal, because the improved muscular strength and stability can help to counteract the large forces that are applied to the lower abdomen and pelvis. This can reduce the risk of developing Osteitis Pubis.
Osteitis pubis can often be a difficult injury to rehabilitate. However, with appropriate physiotherapy and management of activity levels, most patients can return to normal function in a number of weeks. In more severe cases (particularly in those patients who have had their symptoms for a long period of time) rehabilitation may take significantly longer, often lasting 6 months or more before a successful return to sport can occur. Early physiotherapy treatment is therefore vital to hasten recovery in all patients with this condition.
