Abstract

CONTEXT: Athletic pelvic and groin injuries are a common yet challenging problem. Pelvic belts have been successfully used to reduce pain and improve function but are not a practical solution for athletes. Therefore, there is scope to explore the use of a more dynamic intervention developed to aid in the management of this type of injury. OBJECTIVES: To undertake a preliminary investigation into the effectiveness of a dynamic elastomeric fabric orthosis (DEFO) in supporting the management of athletic pelvic and groin injury. DESIGN: A case series with an AB design. Daily assessments were undertaken over 15 days; the onset of intervention was randomized with a minimum baseline period of 6 d. Follow-up assessment was undertaken after 1 mo.
