to aid pelvic rehab
hi, been out for months with 'stress changes at adductor insertions', though this past week i think theres been moderate improvement after doing exercises suggested by a podiatrist - hip flexor stretches etc.
Have also started working on my core - planks, side planks, bridge, side steps with resistance band for glutes.
However, after researching it on internet im confused as to stability and strengthening - seems to be a lot of jargon and medical words used.
Could anybody explain the two in simple terms, which exercises are stability, which are strengthening and any recommendations for continuing groin/pelvis/adductor recovery???
parklife, one way of putting it is that core stability is what results from core strength.
If you imagine yourself standing up, you need 'pillar' strength to stop falling over when you raise one leg, either with the opposing arm (as in running) or not. If you imagine yourself in a plank position, recruiting your core (stength) is what gives you the ability to remain in a stable platform without sagging (core stability)
