Iliopsoas: The Hidden Culprit
Do you have chronic back or hip pain, that won’t go away, no matter how much you stretch and foam roll?
By Greg Hammons
The hidden culprit may be a deep muscle called the iliopsoas. The iliopsoas muscle is one of our major hip flexors. When we sit for long periods of time or do things that flex the hip, this muscle tends to get tight. An ignored iliopsoas muscle can affect your posture and result in pain in your thighs, back, and hips.
