Tension On The Psoas Muscles

Share

Tension: The psoas muscles are a part of the iliopsoas muscle group. This important set of muscles works together with the other muscles of the hip to flex and extend the hip joints and thighs. The psoas muscles also work in conjunction with the spinal muscles to support the lumbar spine. If the psoas is not healthy or strong enough, you will start noticing other problems surge throughout your body.

For many athletes, especially runners, the psoas muscles are constantly being overworked with repetitive activity and movements that eventually can lead to stress and tension of the muscles. As a result, the psoas muscles can become tightened and limit the range of movement in the hip sockets also adding strain on the lumbar spine and knees. Tension in the psoas muscles can be asymmetrical, where only one side of the psoas muscles is tightened, resulting in a tilt of the pelvis that relatively shortens one leg over the other, misaligning the spine and pelvis, and causing compensation up the spine and neck. Releasing and loosening the psoas muscles is crucial for anyone to avoid complications on their bodies.

Strengthening the psoas muscles alone may not result in healthy psoas muscles. Chiropractic and physical therapy massages along with repetitive stretches and exercises help restore the natural health of your psoas muscles. Correcting your posture is also important during this process as a slouched or forward head posture increases the tension on the resting length of the psoas. Gently releasing tight, tense psoas muscles can go a long way to restoring the natural functions and balance of your body.
