Active-Isolated Adductor Magnus Stretch: Common issue I have observed with the elderly population, they tend to cave in (greater kyphosis, leaned forward more from the hips, knees drawing in-without the presence of arthritis). This greatly affects stability that also increases the risks of falls. One of the causes of postural instability is adductor tightness. Adductor magnus is responsible for hip adduction, flexion and extension. If the muscle is pulling the femur in, it will limit the antagonists muscles (glutes) from externally rotating the hip required to build torque (rotational force) that is essential for stability. Here I am actively stretching the adductors with one leg of the patient propped sideways on the step board. As the patient reaches down, it stretches the adductors on the elevated leg and passively externally rotates the hip as well.
