    Weak adductors (affecting the hip and thigh)

    Anyone else living with weak adductors?

    I have mild spastic hemiplegia on the entire right side of my body. For the past few years, due to overuse, I have had weakness, limited movement, and neuropathy (which for up to a few hours a day felt like there were insects crawling over and under my hip and groin area - sometimes crippling) in my thigh and groin area. Obviously as with everything with CP, this is exascerbated by other symptoms and impairments and also makes other symptoms and impairments worse. And then once the muscles are affected it affects tendons, fascia, bones, etc. I am looking to undo all that as much as I can.

    My new-ish physical therapist has pinpointed it to the adductors, particularly the adductor longus.
    I have done stretches and exercises since my appointment with him last Friday and already things have changed.

    I am hoping the pain and discomfort and damage done is not permanent and this can be strengthened and loosened. Maybe the neuropathy will disappear finally. I am also making other lifestyle changes to help it, such as not wearing skinny jeans and walking much more and not sitting down for lengthy periods. Anyone have any luck?

    Any insight is much appreciated. Thanks.
