Pelvic and sacral dysfunctions resulting from sports-related injuries are unusual. A simple groin pull, however, can prohibit an athlete from participating in sports activities for an extended period of time. Pelvic floor dysfunctions can be particularly impairing for women athletes, and are rarely discussed in sports literature. This article reviews the anatomy, biomechanics, common injury patterns, and treatment options for athletic injuries related to the pelvis.
