Groin Rehab Phase I

FULL article here:ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜ฉ Chronic groin pain can literally be a pain in the butt. The groin area is home to a multitude of different muscles, tendons, ligaments, and most importantly your private areas! Therefore, many times itโ€™s hard to pinpoint the exact area of pain and thus when it comes groin rehab, I often times take the approach of strengthening everything and building tissue resiliency of all the muscles in that region. You can never go wrong with a strong and bullet-proof groin complex.ย  . ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป Much like the sacroiliac joint which relies on all the muscles surrounding it to provide stability, a concept known as force closure, I treat the groin region similarly. The adductors, hamstrings, hip flexors, glutes, and most importantly the lower abdominals must all work in unison to provide stability to the groin complex. In this article, I will take you through a sample groin pain rehab program I use with patients in the clinic to bullet-proof every muscle in the groin! . โœ…These exercises in Phase I will form the foundation and building blocks of the program. First, weโ€™ll start with exercises that directly load the tissues in the groin, namely the adductors and hip flexors. The goal of these exercises is to gently put load through the adductors and hip flexors, the two most commonly implicated muscles that contribute to groin pain. . โ€ผ๏ธ You are responsible for how hard you squeeze with these exercises. The goal is to ramp up as strong as a contraction as you can, but keeping it just below the threshold when you begin to feel pain in your groin. . ๐Ÿ“ฅ You can download the entire Phase I program here:ย
