Possibly: Tight adductor & other hip muscle imbalances can cause back and hamstring troubles.Tight adductors could inhibit the gluteus medius.The gluteus muscle does help to support the body when you are standing on 1 leg.Thus,it would be food to see a Physical therapist & to consider incorporating a program of Core Pilates,after a thorough evaluation from a Sports Medicine MD as there are also other causes
