If you are looking for exercises for a specific injury such as groin strain exercises then follow our specific groin strain rehab program. Below we have a collection of hip and groin exercises which are suitable for preventing groin injury and rehab from hip and groin injuries.
We have organised them into early stage, mid stage and late stage exercises depending on difficulty.
Some exercises may overlap categories and some may not be suitable for certain injuries so we always recommend seeking professional advice.
Hip and groin rehab exercises should always be done pain free. If an exercise is painful to do then this is usually a sign that it is hurting rather than helping.
The number of reps and sets of each exercise will depend on stage of rehab. A guide is to start at one set of 8 and build up over a few days to 3 sets of 12 to 15 reps.
Hip and Groin Rehabilitation Exercises
The groin and hip are a very complex area as it is the link between the trunk and the legs where a number of structures meet. The most common injuries in this area include groin strains, piriformis syndrome, hernias, hip bursitis and osteoarthritis.
Rehabilitation exercises for this area may be required when treating an injury in this area, or possibly an injury elsewhere, such as a knee injury or lower back pain. Problems such as weak glutes and tight groin muscles or hamstrings commonly contribute to the development of problems elsewhere.
