Adductor Tendinopathy

Adductor Tendinopathy is an injury or tear to the tendons that connect the adductor muscles to the hip. 

What is Adductor Tendinopathy?

There are five adductor muscles: the pectineus, adductor longus and adductor brevis are the 'short adductors', and go from the pelvis to the thigh bone. The adductor magnus and gracilis muscles are the 'long adductors' and go from the pelvis down to the knee.

When the adductors are overstrained, this can cause injury or degeneration to the tendons that attach the adductors to the bone. This is adductor tendinopathy.
