Manual Muscle Testing Of The Hip Adductors

It has been suggested that testing adduction at various degrees of knee flexion emphasizes the different adductors, such that resistance to adduction at 0 degrees tests adductor longus and gracilis, 45 degrees stresses the symphysis pubis, and 90 degrees the pectineus tendon (Sizer 2006).
