Did you know that your inner thigh muscles (called adductors) are also involved in hip flexion, extension, and even flexing your knee?
More often than not, they get lumped into an “inner thigh” category, but the anatomy of these muscles is even more interesting when you understand how it’s all connected – especially if you’ve been struggling with hip pain or tight inner thighs.
If you’re on the journey to pain-free and you haven’t started working on your inner thighs – then today’s episode is for you!
