LEGS14 Adductor Strengthening Exercise

Function:

To improve the power and health of the muscles of the inner thigh and to improve stability at the hip joint.

Method:

Starting Position:

Lie on your side. Support your torso with your lower forearm. Bend the knee of the affected leg at right angle and place a firm folded pillow under the knee. Keep the other leg straight and behind the bent leg

Action:

In a slow progressive manner push the knee against the pillow and squeeze the pillow. At maximum force hold in that position for 10-15 seconds. Rest and repeat again as directed by your osteopath.

Notes:

As your rehabilitation progresses your osteopath may advise you to further challenge these muscles by keeping the leg at end of range for a specified amount of time before returning to the starting position.
