Experiencing Low Back Pain?

It's Time To Feel Better

Experiencing Low Back Pain? 

When was the last time you checked in with your Adductor muscle group?

The adductor group is often a neglected muscle group in the lower extremity, but its functioning is vital to pain free movement within our lumbopelvic region. Quite often, adductor muscle group dysfunction can be a cause of hip, SI joint, and low back pain.

Basic anatomy tells us these muscles bring the leg toward midline of the body and rotate the leg outward, but what it doesn’t tell us is that this muscle group functions very differently when our feet are in contact with the ground.

The adductor muscle group originates from the pelvis and attaches on the inside of the leg. These muscles are responsible for decelerating stress (i.e gravity, ground reaction forces) to the pelvis and low back as we move side to side and forward to backward.

When the foot is in contact with the ground and the pelvis, sacrum and lumbar spine has to move from one side of the body to the other which is often seen when swinging a baseball bat, skating in hockey, the backswing of a golf swing, running or hitting ground strokes in tennis.

In a nutshell, this muscle group has to lengthen under tension to control hip, sacrum and low back movement, slowing motion down motion in these areas while simultaneously providing stability to these areas as well.

If the adductor muscle group is unable to lengthen/decelerate effectively and efficiently during movements, all of the additional stress is imparted on the major body parts and joints they influence (i.e.hip, SIJ, lumbar spine) which can lead to pain in the entire lumbopelvic region.

If you have been having low back pain that hasn’t improved no matter what you have tried and you are tired of being in pain, we encourage you to call the clinic and set up an evaluation to get down to the root cause of your pain and get you moving pain free.
