Step by Step

  1. This is a good exercise for flexibility issues of the hip adductors and groin.
  2. This stretch is not is a warm up and it shouldn’t be done just before exercise ideally.
  3. Like any exercise you should only do the exercise if it is pain free during, after and the next day. The most that you should feel is a strong stretch or discomfort.
  4. Stand with your feet quite wide apart. Place your right foot forwards and your left foot back slightly Now turn your right foot out to the side slightly and bend the right knee so that it moves you over diagonally right and forwards.
  5. During this keep your left knee straight and the left foot in the same spot on the floor.
  6. Also make sure that your body remains straight throughout. You should feel a stretch in your left anterior groin.
  7. Hold the stretch for 20 to 30 secs & repeat for the other leg.
  8. You should aim to do this between 4-6 times daily to improve your flexibility
  9. It may take several months to actually lengthen the muscle significantly so be patient.

Online Physiotherapy

Put simply this is Physio done via either telephone or video over the internet. Skype and facetime are examples of this.

Contrary to popular belief online physiotherapy can be very effective and it can help the same injuries that face to face physio can help. I have helped many people with injuries such as disc prolapses, tennis elbow, neck pain and much more).
