Hip adduction and abduction can be done using resistance bands while you are in a seated position.
Avoiding excessive and prolonged infant hip adduction, or forcing the legs in a straight position close together for periods of time (as in swaddling) may help prevent strain on the hip joints.
Adduction of the vocal cords happens most commonly during inhalation, although it can also happen during exhalation.
The hip abduction and hip adduction machines target your outer and inner thighs, respectively.
This is called adduction of the vocal cords.
