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. You might try an indoor or outdoor bike. Another way to do cardio is super sets with light to medium weights. Even just with upper body work you'll get a good pump.Swimming might work, just pay attention to your adductors. ...Read more

I was sleeping then I woke up and I noticed a severe burning on the muscle near my thumb, first dorsal interossei, adductor pollicis. What is it??

Difficult to know...: These muscles are innervated by the ulnar nerve, and an impingement of the ulnar nerve anywhere along its course can conceivably cause your symptoms. Most common place would be at the cubital tunnel (cubital tunnel syndrome). To know for sure, see a neuromuscular specialist, such as a physiatrist, who can not only examine you but also do definitive diagnostic testing. Hope you get better soon. ...Read more

Notice muscle wasting in my adductor pollicis. Had ulna transposition may 2012 muscle coming back very slowly.? Can I inject steroid into adductor?

Muscle atrophy: Muscle atrophy occurs when muscle has become denervated (nerve fibers to the muscle have died). Dead is dead. Adding steroid to the muscle or nerve won't bring it back to life. An EMG can tell you what percent of the nerve fibers are permanently lost. If you still have at least 20% or more you have a chance for recovery through re-sprouting. The higher the percentage lost the longer the recovery. ...Read more
