I run about 5 days a week and I think my adductor muscles are injured. Is there another cardio workout I can do that doesn't use these muscles?

I run about 5 days a week and I think my adductor muscles are injured. Is there another cardio workout I can do that doesn't use these muscles?

Legs In A Pinch?: Well, firstly, just how do you run? Do you do a lot of lateral moves or sprints or hurdles? What I mean is that over-use of adductor muscles is rather unusual during a routine jog.

Can damage to the obturator nerve during total laparoscopic hysterectomy cause the adductor minimus to have complete atrophy to nothing?

Can damage to the obturator nerve during total laparoscopic hysterectomy cause the adductor minimus to have complete atrophy to nothing?

Perhaps but why?: Any muscle that loses its innervation may atrophy, but in this case there is collateral innervation from a branch of the sciatic (tibial) & possibly an accessory obturator nerve. Bigger question is function. With physical therapy adduction is usually recovered, especially since there is also the adductor magnus & if damage was not total interruption it will also heal. If concern see neurosurgery. ...Read more
