Hi all. I've recently started rolling my adductors, after realising that I've completely neglected them since I first started foam rolling, and the pain I'm experiencing is pretty intense. I can't put too much pressure on the area. Merely resting my thigh on the roller causes pain, at any point along the inner thigh. My ITB, hamstrings, hips and glutes don't hurt much when foam rolling them. Calf pain is moderate. I do get knee pain, but I've been rather ignorant of my adductors (mostly focusing on my ITB) and I'm wondering if I must endure this pain in order to reduce knee pain.
I expected the pain to be comparable to my ITB pain when I first started on them, but it's sharper and more intense. Most of you will probably say I need to stick with it (I intend to for now), but is there a level of discomfort that is not worth pushing past? Common sense tells me it isn't anything serious, but could I be damaging other structures in that part of my leg?
Has anyone had the same experience and overcome it?
