Function of the Hip Adductor Muscles
Your adductor muscles help move your lower limb towards your centerline or midline. When you cross your legs, these muscles contract, as well. When you walk or run, your adductors help keep your lower limbs from moving too far away from each other.
Adductor Injury – Groin Strain
A strain is an injury to a muscle. In groin strain, any of the adductor muscles become overstretched or pulled causing tearing, resulting in pain and swelling. It is a common sports injury, especially in football and certain track and field sports.
