Rehabilitation and prevention
Rehabilitation for tendinitis of the adductors begins with gradual reintroduction into action with stretching and strengthening exercises for the muscles that are affected. Use heat packs on the affected area first before exercise, then continue with activities to ensure that the muscles are ready for action. Extending the abductors and strengthening the adductors can help prevent this injury. Rehabilitating all groin pulls and other hip injuries completely will also prevent problems with the adductors.
