As we continue to look at muscles involved in knee pain, we shift our attention towards the inner thigh. An area not often considered with knee pain, two muscles that sit high up toward the hip are key muscles in knee pain: adductor longus and adductor brevis:

Often associated with leg length deviations, tight hips, poor movement patterns, and poor posture, tight adductors are not abnormal. After a long enough time, trigger point pain in the knee is an inevitable result of tension in the inner thigh. If you are experiencing pain similar to the picture above, book a session and find long-lasting relief for your chronic knee pain.
