The significance and diagnostic pitfalls of inguinal fossa pain has been discussed in the previous chapter, in which epigastric, gallbladder, renal, ureteric, and bladder pain have also been mentioned. Each has its particular history and attendant physical signs, but the common reality of referred pain does not exclude the possibility of pains at any of these sites being of mechanical origin, most likely arising between the 8th and 12th thoracic levels, as well as the lumbar ones, even when systemic disease is at first suspected. It is equally important to remember that the teaching of cure of any of these conditions by manipulation remains a dangerous dream. So to the pelvis itself.
