Abduction refers to a movement that moves a limb away from your body. By contrast, adduction refers to a movement that brings a limb closer to your body. These ranges of motion involve only the hip, not the knee. Begin by lying on your back. Slide your injured leg out to the side as far as it will go to perform abduction.

Back pain is also the second most common reason for seeing a doctor in the U.S., following coughs and other respiratory infections. These statistics are similar in other countries. So whats the problem? When you look at the research with a cold eye, the scientific validity for many of the common claims of low back pain causes and treatments is questionable. To say the least.
