Lower back/ Hip condition or just Psoas Pain?

Lower back/ Hip condition or just Psoas Muscles Pain?

Recently I have treated 2 patients with hip and lower back pain. Both have been told by their doctors that they might require surgery as they have degenerative changes in their hip joint and L4 and L5 vertebra.

We found in our clinic however, that their major problems are in the psoas muscles after consultation and careful assessment. Following a few sessions of Low Level Laser therapy (LLLT), they found walking had become easier.

Psoas muscle pain may feel like lower back pain at waist-level, or groin pain (psoas tendinitis or psoas bursitis), deep pelvic pain (lumbopelvic pain), pain deep in the belly. Tight psoas muscles are also a major contributor to hip joint pain.

This condition is called Iliopsoas syndrome which is a collection of symptoms caused by tight iliopsoas muscles and experienced anywhere along their length. Psoas

The iliopsoas muscles consist of the iliacus muscles, which span from each groin to the sides of the pelvic cavity; the psoas muscles span from the inner groin to the spine behind the breathing diaphragm; and because they share the same tendon at the groin, they are called "the iliopsoas muscles". Tight psoas muscles put undue pressure on the bursa at the groin, causing iliopsoas bursitis and iliopsoas tendinitis. Tight psoas muscles are in a constant state of fatigue thus give rise to sore feelings, leading to pelvic and abdominal pain.

LLLT helps to relax the muscle, reduce inflammation, relieve pain and improve the circulation and therefore restore the functions. A right diagnosis can avoid any unnecessary surgery or saving time and fortunes.
