Groin Exercises

1. The Butterfly Stretch is very useful in pulled groin injuries. You’ll begin by sitting on the floor. Your knees should be bent and the soles of your feet should be placed together. Allow your knees to naturally relax downwardly. The goal is to relax and warm the groin muscles and open the meridians (pathway of energy) running from your groin to your lower leg. To do this, take the palm of your hand and place it on the back of your knee. Begin making long massaging strokes toward the groin area. Repeat the motion for fifteen to twenty times. Now, you want to allow the back of your knees to fully relax downward. You should feel the spaces in the hip opening as your knees relax. Be mindful that you aren’t physically forcing your knees to go toward the floor, but rather allowing them to fully relax into the position. You may repeat the Butterfly Stretch two times each day.
