It is important to inlcude a stretch for these muscles in your regular regime particularly if you run, dance, or play any sport that involves running on the court or field. Most of your adductor muscles attach at the base of your pelvic basin, and failure to stretch them could lead to groin injuries that are very painful and restrictive.
This stretch is beneficial to anyone recovering from an Avulsion Fracture in the groin or pelvic region, a Groin Strain, Osteitis Pubis, Piriformis Syndrome, Tendonitis of the Adductor Muscle Group, or Trochantric Bursitis.
Always remember that while stretching may be recommended to aid recovery out of injury, you should always be very careful when stretching through rehabilitation. Your soft tissues are likely to be more vulnerable to re-injury if you stretch too much or too hard during this time. Always check with your Health Care Professional who is guiding you through your recovery to make sure it is appropriate to start stretching, and please - ALWAYS FOLLOW THE RULES FOR SAFE STRETCHING (The first posting on this stretching blog).
