Adductor Stretch, plus Gracilis, Sartorius, Vastus Medialis and Inside of Thigh roller stretches – If you suffer with fascial adhesions in your adductor muscles, gracilis, vastus medialis, sartorius, semimembranosus or semitendinosus muscles, then try some this side lying adductor stretch using a foam roller (or larger massage ball). Be careful not to apply prolonged pressure between the legs to avoid cutting off blood supply via the femoral artery and vein. Spend 15 to 20 seconds on each section and work up and down the inside of the thigh using a scissor action whilst side lying. This will break up fascial adhesions between the muscle tissue and muscle bellies, as well as giving a gentle adductor stretch into the muscles using the weight of the relaxed upper leg. Make sure you are not straining your neck whilst doing the exercises and alternate between the left and right leg being on top.
I received treatment from Richard for plantar fasciitis - he is professional, informative & very friendly. He also followed up my treatment with self help exercises. Thanks to Richard I'm now pain free!!
A fantastic and professional service which correctly diagnosed and treated my shoulder and neck discomfort. Richard also advised certain post treatment exercises to prevent the problem recurring.
Very professional, knowledgeable and thorough, I have been using Achilles Healers Sports Therapy to fix a sprained foot, and excellent results so far. I would highly recommend to anyone needing any niggles or injuries sorted!
Professional and cheery throughout both sessions, helped alot with my leg pain and would highly recommend him to anyone with the same problem
A very professional service, from online booking through to aftercare, Richard certainly knows his stuff. He is very thorough in assessing the whole body, not just your injury. His aftercare advice is also excellent. Highly recommended.
I went to Richard for shoulder and back pain and he worked wonders! Brilliant treatment and he also gave me some stretches to do at home which have been working well in between treatments, thank you!
I constantly struggle with neck and back pain and have been thrilled by the level of treatment I have received. Even when I go away, I have received information on how to self treat in between treatments.
