Why You Should Roll Your Adductors
If the adductors get too tight, they will pull your thighs inwards, which places more stress on your knees during physical activity and can lead to conditions such as patellar tendonitis. Additionally, if your knee collapses inward you’re at an increased risk of overworking or even tearing your ACL.
How to do it
To foam roll your adductors, place the roller on the inside of your thigh. Pictured above are two positions you can use.
Lie down on your side, with the foam roller on the inside of your top thigh and bend the bottom thigh at the hip and at the waist. Roll back and forth to massage the muscle.
Lie down on your stomach, spread your legs, and place the roller on the inside of your thigh. Roll from side to side to massage the muscle.
Foam rolling your adductors can help with knee alignment, but for best results, you also have to strengthen the muscles on the outside of your hip (hip abduction and external rotation). You can read more about these strengthening exercises
