A year-old osteoarthritic woman was treated with a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug NSAID and exercises for right-sided sciatic pain after a minor fall, but developed left groin pain and tenderness over the pubic symphysis after two days of exercise. She had an impacted fracture of the left pubic symphysis which responded to use of a cane.
