We have been working on some easier ways to stretch your psoas, also known as your hip flexors, to get the best focus stretch we could.
We came up with something new, and we think improved on what you might already know.
Hip flexors as you can see from the diagram are actually attached to the low back. They need to be for leverage in lifting the leg, which is actually a pretty big structure.
They insert onto the top of your hip.
They are super cool things to look at in the way we move!
It’s not just hip pain that they can be a culprit for.
We find that nagging back pain just below the ribcage at the back of your spine can be a problem area for tight hip flexors.
