Weak abs/core can cause back pain, neck pain, toe gripping, and groin strain to name a few.
The rectus abdominis attaches to the superior portion of the pubis, whereas the adductors attach to the inferior.
There is a dynamic balance between the 2.
If the abs are weak the adductors have to work harder. this can lead to groin pulls and strains, especially under exertion, like kicking a ball.
Sometimes a muscle is tight but under active and needs to be activated, not released.
Release of the adductors followed by activating the abs reprograms the brain and prevents future mishaps. #nkt #neurokinetictherapy #abs #groin
