LEGS14 Adductor Strengthening Exercise


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


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


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.


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.
