It’s pretty impressive how much various forms of hip and groin pain can be reduced with a simple self-release technique using a lacrosse ball on the the muscles called the “adductors”. We make a ton of training videos for our staff and other physical therapists around the world. Occasionally we share them on our blog so those suffering needlessly can see how our approach to hands-on physical therapy and unique self-treatment instruction can help others to get back to the living the active lifestyles they want and deserve.
Below is one such video showing an example of an adductor self-release to decrease your groin and hip pain. *Please note that a single technique is unlikely to completely resolve most forms of hip or groin pain, and what you see in the video below is not safe for everyone out there. You need to confirm with a licensed healthcare provider that this self-treatment technique is safe and appropriate for you. If you’re in the Austin area or can get here, and would like to know exactly what’s causing your hip/groin pain, you can click here to request a completely free onsite physical therapy consultation with one of our expert manual physical therapists.

Are you frustrated with constantly dealing with same running injuries over and over again? Are you tired of thinking you have recovered only to have the same injury come back several months later? Read on to find out why you are dealing with repetitive injuries.
A wise man once said “running reveals weakness and if you run enough, injury is not too far away.” When you run, you experience 2-3 times the force of your own body-weight! .. with every step! Over the course of a run you experience an extreme amount of force through your joints which can lead to injury.
What if you could get to the underlying cause of your injuries that keep plaguing you and keep you from doing what you love? What if you knew exactly what to do to prepare for your upcoming 5K,10K, or even half marathon?
The video below demonstrates the Squat/Ankle Mobility Test, which is part 5 of a 5 step Functional Movement Screen I taught to a group of personal trainers. This set of movement tests is designed to identify predispositions to injury so they can be addressed before a problem occurs.
