Hip & Groin Exercises
We have hip and groin exercises for rehabilitation of specific injuries including groin strain. Click here for hip & groin stretches. We have also categorized them into early, mid and late stage exercises although this is only a guide and we recommend seeking professional advice.
These exercises are often done as soon as possible after injury if pain will allow. The aim is to restore range of motion without putting any damaged tissues under stress. The exact exercises and how quickly you progress through will depend on the type and severity of injury. Active mobility exercises where the athlete physically attempts to move the joint through a range of motion are often the first step.
During the mid stage exercises progress to gentle strengthening, gradually increasing the load on the joint and through the recovering tissues. Balance and proprioception training usually begins.
These exercises are more functional and sports specific. The aim is to restore full strength and mobility to the joint and return the athlete to full training and competition.
