About the program:
This program is aimed at conservative therapy for patients with athletic pubalgia.
You may begin this program after consulting your physician or a member of our team.
The program consists of exercises that help improve function in the adductor muscles of the hip, as well their postoperative recovery. Stretching and improving their elasticity is key.
For a full and timely recovery, it is necessary to perform the exercises daily.
What the program contains:
- The program contains video playlists.
- A new playlist is loaded every day.
- The videos combine a detailed description of the exercise with a visual demonstration of how to correctly perform it.
- The exercises gradually progress in difficulty.
40 days of rehabilitation

All rehabilitation exercises are only to be performed until you feel a stretch up to a mild discomfort. Under no circumstances should you cause yourself any pain. If you feel any pain, please take a short break and resume exercising at a reduced strain level. Overexertion will slow down the recovery process!
This program was created with the help of:
Dr. Robert Halvadjian, MD, Chief of Orthopedics and Traumatology at Avis Medica Hospital in Pleven

Athletic pubalgia relates to chronic overexertion of the hip adductor muscles and their tendons, particularly while they’re still being contracted. Their attachment sites on the pubic bone and the tendons that lead there are most sensitive to the mechanism of injury. When the tension exceeds their functional elasticity, this leads to microtears in the tendon as well as in its attachment site (an area where the tendon’s fibers insert into the bone mass). When high-energy movement or an extended period of deterioration are involved, this could lead to what is known as an avulsion fracture. This is an injury where the tendon tears off, along with a fragment of bone. It occurs very frequently in professional goalkeepers in football, due to the frequent need to do sudden stretches or even splits. Non-professional players are often affected as well, in sports like football, hockey, and basketball.
Prevention consists of the application of frequent massages, physical therapy, and mainly kinesiotherapy.
