The RA is an opposing muscle to the adductors and when it is hurt or torn the adductors are forced to shoulder a huge load. Remember....adductors are not designed to be primary movers. They are supposed to be atablizers.
Here is something to think about.
When I was hurt I was forced into a drastic Anterior tilted posture. In fact if I put my heels against the wall and head as well there would be close to a 3-4" gap. Now the gap is about 1/2-1".
When i would go for a walk my hip flexors would be so tight as well as my quads and adductors of course.
Now because my RA is in place and my pelvis is in neutral the only thing that is sore after a real long walk (5-7 miles) is my glutes. This is because they are now my prime movers. Remember, when the hip flexors take over it shuts the glutes down (this is caused gluteal amnesia). So in essence the body is relying on muscles that are not supposed to be doing the job as a primary mover.
This is the reason the adductors are so tight. in fact mine were so overworked that they calcified together to try to join forces (body is smart...even though it hurts). This forced edema to pool and be forced into my lower leg with tremendous pressure.
