Tightness in the Abductors

The ball-and-socket construction of your hip joint allows you to move your thigh in many different directions. One possible movement of the hip is abduction. The abductors move the thigh away from the center of the body, such as when you take a step to the side. 

When your abductors are tight, they restrict the mobility of your hip. This can lead to pain on the outside of your knees as well as in your lower back and hips. When your piriformis is tight, you might experience pain that begins in your buttocks and radiates down your leg. Stretching can reduce tightness in the abductors. 

HIP AND ABDUCTOR STRETCH

You can do the following stretch in bed under the covers, however I find when you want to stretch your legs back out its best to use your hands to push your legs back down rather than use your relaxed abductors to do the work.

Tight traps, levator scaps, pecs and scalenes can all cause neck and shoulder pain on their own, simply by feeling tight, stiff and developing trigger points.

Yup! The necessity of stretching is very understandable in this blog and that's why from now I will concentrate on that part of the exercise and hopefully I will get benefit from that for sure. Thanks a lot for suggesting about this issue.

Excellent blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions? Cheers!
