Dr. Rajpal Brar claims that Pascal Struijk, a defender for Leeds United, could be sidelined for up to a month following surgery because of a hernia problem.

If the injury expert is right and it is inflammation in the area in the front of the pelvis, he won’t be able to return until mid-December.

Grades cannot identify the severity of the setback, although it has been described as a potentially chronic problem.

Speaking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Brar, a specialist in Physical Therapy and Sports Scientist, said about Struijk:

“The amount of time out really depends on the procedure.

“Considering he was playing through it, this might be a case of osteitis pubitis which is inflammation near the front of the pelvis and those procedures can take around a month to return from.

This injury – if osteitis pubis – typically isn’t graded by grade. It’s more of a chronic condition that leads to inflammation near the front of the pubic bone.

The 24-year-old has been a first-team regular this season under Daniel Farke. With Joe Rodon signing, the Tottenham Hotspur man and the Dutch defender have been the go-to centre-back pairing.

Struijk has played in 15 league games this term and has also found the back of the net once – in the game against Southampton in September.
