    Iliopsoas Pain Solutions

    Taping
    22 Years Old Basketball Player suffering from Iliopsoas pain (I believe).
    Pain is in the area between the groin and inner thigh. Only occurs on one side. Pain with external hip rotation.
    After visiting a sports medicine doctor, I was in PT for Iliopsoas with no positive effect.

    From my many hours of online research, it seems the most effective recommended solution is something along the lines of
    "p
    alpate deeply along the Iliopsoas within the femoral triangle to assess for the distal trigger points of the Iliopsoas"

    I'm having trouble attempting this mainly because the Iliopsoas is so difficult to find.

    If anybody has any ideas, I am desperately looking for any solutions.

    Re: Iliopsoas Pain Solutions

    Hi James
    I would recommend some exercises like yoga.
    Tips:
    1) STAY ON YOUR FEET:
    Keep your back straight, it will help you connect your abdominal muscles. Take a step forward with your right foot. Lower left knee to the floor and slide backwards until the whole leg is stretched.

    2)LIE ON YOUR BACK:
    Bring the right knee to the left, rotate the waist and place it on the floor. The right foot should be at right angles, while the left foot does not bend. Stand for a few seconds in this position and repeat with the other leg.

    3) LIE ON YOUR BACK:
    Raise your right knee to your chest and hold it with both hands. Press to bring it as close as possible. Do not lift your left foot off the floor. Stay in this position for a few seconds and repeat with the other foot.

    if those exercises work for you let me know.

    Re: Iliopsoas Pain Solutions

    Must have Kinesiology Taping DVD
    Hello James,

    I hope the tips and exercises provided were of help in your situation.
    However, I would like to recommend a simple technique in the link below, that I found personally helpful, for my similar pain.
    How to Release the Psoas Muscles - YouTube

    1 common and general tip which you already must be aware of, but I would stress you to follow, i.e. Always turn to a side whilst getting up from the bed.
    I know it looks like a very small concern, but it makes a lot of difference when one suffers from any sort of Low-Back / Pelvic pain issues.

    Do let me know how this works out for you (If you happen to use it)
