The adductors as a group are really a powerhouse. They have a lot of combined muscle fibers and through their attachment sites on the pelvis and the femur, significantly influence the body’s alignment. Because they originate and have such a presence on the pelvis, shortened adductors will influence the tilt and transverse rotation of the pelvis. The thorax is intimately connected and sometimes anchored to the pelvis through muscles such as the Quadratus Lumborum, the Rectus Abdominis and the Transverse, Internal and External Obliques. Any shift in the pelvis toward neutrality as a result of bodywork on the adductors will directly affect the muscles that connect the pelvis and the thorax and thus will create space for the thorax to shift
