Squat Tightness in Adductor / Sartorius / Pectineus

I'm having a tightness and pain in the area of the adductor/sartorius/pectineus area according to the anatomy on this diagram: http://image.shutterstock.com/displa...-116775694.jpg

I really don't know if its any of those, but that's where it becomes very tight hours after squatting, and it's only on the right side. I do a lot of glute activation and SMR before and after every training session, but this spot is consistently tight and sore.

I see an ART specialist, and he's able to relieve it like magic, but I'd like to know how to prevent it from happening, or how to treat it myself.

Thanks all.

Joe

Re: Squat Tightness in Adductor / Sartorius / Pectineus

If it keeps coming back, it's likely the most efficiently working group of muscles when you squat. They continue getting tight because they are overworked. The ART will continue to help, but if the problem is caused from the glutes, the bridges are not going to help.

You need to find out why those muscles are overworked. Could be hamstrings, QL, rec fem, TVA, RA, erectors; to name a few.

Once you find someone to figure that piece out, the rehab is something you can continually work on your own.

If you want to try to find a referral for someone near you, PM me, if you don't think the ART guy has the answer.
