The Supine Groin in all its forms, helps restore the proper length and tension to your hip flexor muscles on the inside of your thigh. The Supine Groin relaxes and/or engages your hip flexors while your foot, ankle, knee, hip, spine, shoulder and head are aligned properly which creates a chain reaction up and down your entire body.
All versions of the Supine Groin Stretch are made more effective when using the Egoscue Multi-positioning Tower because it holds the foot and ankle in the perfect position for the posture exercise. The tower and foot pedal limit pronation and supination of the foot/ankle and foot abduction and adduction, which is very important for effective joint realignment up the entire body. This also helps maintain proper muscle length and tension throughout the leg and hip.
All the different forms and variations of the Supine Groin Stretch have their own unique purpose and are used for specific reasons by your Postural Alignment Specialist and we will go through some of the differences between many of the versions.
The Supine Groin Stretch with Towels can be a great posture exercise for clients with Condition 3 posture imbalances especially a posterior pelvic tilt, thoracic kyphosis, and forward head posture because it will help restore the natural S-curve to their spine.
